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.
