We moved to the Maine coast after falling in love with East Boothbay, a small, quaint village to the east of Boothbay Harbor. We now know that “visit once, stay a lifetime” is a common reaction to our beautiful area! Midcoast Maine encompasses miles of coastline and each peninsula is sprawling and diverse, with village settlements of unique character and history.
Beginning in 2017, Down East Gallery is offering an annual poster series to celebrate Maine’s coastal villages. Each high-quality poster is 24″x36″, fits a standard poster frame and features an original painting by artist Brad Betts. $75 + S&H/tax, these posters can be purchased by contacting Brad at the gallery: email@example.com or 207.318.3282.
