The beauty of Bar Harbor was first captured on canvas in the mid-1800’s by noted American painters. Soon, other artists followed and today Bar Harbor and Downeast Maine support a lively arts community.

Each year the artists are judged on their work of art.
We are pleased to announce the 2017 show winners.


Best in show for Painting is JoAnne Houlsen, from Bangor Maine.

Best in show for Photography is Michael Hudson, from Wheaton Illinois.
