The Pemaquid Group of Artists (PGA) announces a call for artists for the Pemaquid Art Gallery in Lighthouse Park, Bristol, for the 2023 season. The Pemaquid Gallery will open for Memorial Day weekend 2023 and then open for the season on Friday, June 2.

Going strong and 95 years old in 2023, the Pemaquid Gallery is proud to exhibit the work of award-winning artists whose work is collected and exhibited across the US and internationally. The Pemaquid Art Gallery is professionally staffed and is open from late May until Columbus Day. Located at Lighthouse Park at Pemaquid Point, a popular attraction for summer visitors to Maine, the gallery draws thousands of visitors each season.

Artists interested in applying for membership are required to submit three recent, original works of art. All art must be framed and ready for hanging. In addition, artists must submit a short resume and a completed application with their art. The application is available for download at under “2023 Call for Artists.” Submitted work must be dropped at the gallery on Friday, April 14 and will be juried on Saturday, April 15.

The current residency requirement for gallery members includes all of Lincoln County, Maine. The gallery is not a cooperative and members are not required to staff the gallery.
