Townsend Real Estate also is an active fine art gallery. We have partnered with MECA ( Maine College of Art) to showcase the work of their very talented students in the Continuing Studies Program. The show rotates every 2-3 months. There is a natural relationship between real estate and art. We support both a gallery of fine homes and of fine arts. Come in and visit us as we are open every day except Sunday and have periodical art openings with wine, cheese and live music to celebrate our new artists. Our focus is concentrated on paintings that relate to our community and Maine.
Our current artist is a local photographer, Karen Merritt. Subscribe to our posts to receive news on upcoming shows! Call anytime for a price list.
In 2017, I was part of a year-long collaboration coordinated by Harlow Gallery in Hallowell, ME to create art inspired by the life, work, and landscape of Maine farms and farmers. I spent the year partnered with Crystal Spring Farm in Brunswick, ME. Crystal Spring Farm is owned by the Brunswick – Topsham Land Trust and is leased by a lovely couple – Seth and Maura – who, with their kids and a group of dedicated and talented farm hands, run the farm and the associated CSA program. I had the pleasure of visiting the farm monthly all last year – walking, talking, watching, taking pictures and documenting a small part of the tremendous and unrelenting effort that goes into growing food. I shoot a Mamiya c220; images here are gelatin silver prints. I like the slow pace of old cameras, analog process and the darkroom. This series is my small tribute to the daily magic that Seth, Maura and their crew perform.
