What’s your favorite arts and culture landmark of 1977? Fleetwood Mac Rumours? Star Wars? Beatlemania on Broadway? Ours is easily local legend Peggy Greenhut Golden establishing Greenhut Galleries in the Old Port! Join us as we celebrate Greenhut’s 40th anniversary, its consistently fabulous roster of artists, and its proud distinction as Portland’s oldest year-round gallery.
Since the early 19th century, the rugged and intense beauty of Maine’s land- and seascape, as well as its famed quality of light have attracted and energized generations of artists. For them, Maine is both a geographic location and a site of artistic inspiration and creative freedom -- a state of the union, but also a state of mind. Maine has been and continues to be vitally important to American art, and Greenhut is thrilled to play its part. In Peggy’s words, “It has been most gratifying for Greenhut Galleries to further the tradition of art in the State of Maine. We all work very hard at the gallery, but the artists we represent are the heart and soul of Greenhut.”
As the gallery has grown, so too, have the reputations of its artists, whose styles span the spectrum from realism to abstraction, with a wide range of subject matter in both two- and three-dimensional media. Greenhut represents a diverse group of over 30 Maine painters and sculptors, each selected not only for their technical skill, but also for his or her distinct voice and unique vision. The gallery is also proud to show work from the estates of Robert Hamilton, Maurice Freedman, Jon Imber, and most recently, Neil Welliver and Frederick Lynch.
