Art at Maine Audubon

At Maine Audubon, we are engaging with the creative community through exhibitions of Maine artists in the Gilsland Farm Gallery, workshops and programs that connect to the art, nature, and wildlife of Maine.

Gilsland Farm Gallery

Located in the atrium of the Visitor Center at Gilsland Farm, the Gilsland Farm Gallery holds between 6 and 8 rotating exhibitions per year. We look for artists who have a connection to Maine, Maine Audubon and our mission, and/or nature and conservation. To submit your work for review, please email: We will respond if interested.

Past Exhibitions

Brush with Nature

Brush with Nature 2023 is taking on a different format this year! It will include Maker Days at three centers (Gilsland Farm in Falmouth, Fields Pond in Holden, Scarborough Marsh) where the public is invited to come get creative outside; art-focused workshops at each center; and a juried art show and sale.  Click here for more details. Applications for 2023 have closed.

Background: In 2021 and 2022, Maine Audubon’s juried Plein Air painting event took place at our sanctuaries. Maine artists painted at our sanctuaries in August, the paintings were on display at our Falmouth headquarters, and an auction of the paintings raised money for Maine Audubon’s education, conservation, and advocacy programs.
