The Art Guild of The Kennebunks represents over 75 Maine artists. It was founded in 1980 by a local group of artists led by Ron Goyette to foster camaraderie, mutual support and professional stimulation. In 1981 Barbara Bush cut the ribbon at the opening of the first annual summer membership exhibit held at the Chapel Gallery on Route 35. Each summer since then, the AGK has held exhibitions at various locations in Kennebunk and Kennebunkport. The 2007 Art Guild of the Kennebunks summer exhibit opens tonight, Friday, August 10 at The Community House which is locate on Temple Street, across from the Kennebunkport Post Office. The show will run Friday, 2-7pm, Saturday, 10-7pm and Sunday, Noon-4pm. The public is invited and admission is free.
Bev and I enjoy visiting these shows to see the wonderful variety of pictures and terrific group of talented artists that reside in this area. Also, we have our personal collection of paintings from some of the artists on display at the Captain Lord Mansion. I look forward to seeing you at the show! Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield
