Yes, are we open again! Gallery on the Lake is now OPEN for Summer 2020.

Gourd Art

Are you looking for something special, unique, and authentically Maine?

Gallery on the Lake is the heart of the Moosehead Arts District. Our artwork is 100% Made in Maine! See our video.

What is a gourd? Squash, pumpkins, watermelons, and more are given that name. For these works for art, Eleanor Martell grows her own small gourds, and the large ones, which require a longer growing season than we have in Maine, she buys from out West and paints them in Sanford, Maine.

Of course to a Mainer, "Out West" means anything west of New Hampshire. My favorite are the chicken gourds! Those are new this year.
