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

Pablo Neruda’s volume of poems, Stones of the Sky, was the inspiration for many of the color choices in the Oyster paintings. Turquoise, in his words, is a color recently fallen from the sky.

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:

Brush with Nature: Plein Air Event and Art Auction
Maine Audubon’s juried Plein Air painting event has taken place at our sanctuaries in 2021 and 2022. Maine artists paint at our sanctuaries in August, the paintings are then on display at our Falmouth headquarters, and an auction of the paintings raises money for Maine Audubon’s education, conservation, and advocacy programs.  Click here for more details.
