Maine has always been a home and a haven to artists and creative makers. Spark! Maine ART Stories explores the varied ways Mainers express themselves today, and features sixteen contemporary Maine artists who are diverse in their geography, their artistic mediums, and in what compels them to create.

Featured artists: Titi de Baccarat, Gina Brooks, Brendan Bullock, Barbara Burns, Katharine Cobey, Decontie and Brown, Ayumi Horie, Hector Jaeger, Karen Jelenfy, David Johansen, Daniel Minter, Geo Neptune, Edmond and Brian J. Theriault, and Ian Trask.
MHS is actively preserving the stories of the Spark! Maine ART Stories artists by incorporating extended My Maine Stories (www.mainememory.net/mymainestories) components alongside the artists’ physical works and online.

FREE for MHS Members; $8 for General Admission.
