The Port Clyde Art Gallery, a 14-year-old cooperative venture that this year involves 12 artists working in a range of styles and media. The gallery is located in the converted attic of The Barn Cafe next to the Seaside Inn and opposite the Port Clyde public landing. We feature works in oils, acrylics and watercolors, prints, metal sculpture, found object sculpture, photography, jewelry, cards, pottery and pastels. We also represent artist Robert Hamilton. “From the beginning our focus has been on making the art accessible, available for a moderate price, and using only local artists. At first we were almost exclusively painters, but now we have craftspeople involved as well.”
The Robert Hamilton Collection is also represented by the gallery.

Show: August 2 - August 21. Opening Reception August 4, guest artist Geoff Bladon
Geoff Bladon is a landscape painter. He is a local favorite - painting local scenes of the St George peninsula. His style is impressionistic realism. He works primarily with oils but also does some watercolors as well as pen and ink sketches. He resides in Tenants Harbor, Maine and Keswick Ridge, New Brunswick, Canada. He was the PCAG "Best in Show" Winner at the 2016 10 x 10 Invitational. “It’s all about the light” is Bladon’s philosophy of painting. It suggests the impression of the place, the season, the time of day."
He believes in the importance of painting on site, something he does almost daily in the fair weather, and often with the Plein Air Painters of Maine. Geoff began painting in Montreal with children’s classes taught by Arthur Lismer and he has been painting most of his life. In Maine, he workshopped with Connie Hayes, Tony van Hasselt and particularly, Colin Page. His paintings may also be seen at the Tidemark Gallery in Waldoboro and at River Arts in Damariscotta.
