Paint Eastport

Eastport ME

Calling artists near and far to Paint Eastport!

For years community members have been celebrating the charm of Eastport through Paint Eastport Day. This year Eastport Gallery plans to expand the experience to 2 magical weeks. One week is for creating, and the following week is for sharing via 3 different auction formats.

This year’s Paint Eastport is dedicated to David Orrell, past president of the Eastport Gallery and inspiration behind Paint Eastport.

New this year, work does not need to be created on a single day, or even in Eastport, but we do encourage artists to go out and create en plein air around town on September 4, in the spirit of David Orrell.

Art submissions will be accepted beginning August 27. For more information about the ways to participate in Paint Eastport 2021, visit
