In 2018, the Brick Store Museum opened the Bauman Family Gallery, with generous support from the Bauman Family Foundation. It is located in the Brick Store Museum Program Center. The gallery provides space for contemporary Maine artists to share their work with the community, and is open seasonally from May through December. Each exhibit runs 5-6 weeks, so there is always something new to see!
The Bauman Family Gallery offers artists the opportunity to display their work in a professional environment. We invite Maine artists and Maine arts organizations to submit an information sheet to the Brick Store Museum for exhibit consideration. Please find a digital version below, or pick up a physical copy at the Museum’s front desk.
Theme for 2021: The Museum is celebrating the “Year of Stories.” We are specifically looking for art depicting lived experiences in southern Maine (York and Cumberland counties). If you feel this applies to you, please do not hesitate to contact us! See a specific call for LGBTQIA+ art here.
More information, including applications and FAQ’s, are below. Please read the included directions and information before calling the Museum, as they may be answered on this site.
