The Framemakers Art Gallery

Continuing Our Commitment to the Artists, Artisans, and Crafters of Central Maine

Since 2014, The Framemakers, in downtown Waterville, ME, has dedicated wall and window space to celebrate creative works by local and regional artists while contributing to the creative local community.

We maintain two gallery models: the physical gallery, which we curate both here at the shop and a satellite gallery at Selah Tea Cafe, and an online gallery. We change our physical galleries every other month.

"I remember first walking into [The Framemakers] in 1998 with a drawing of a crystal ball lady representing that year's Arts Fest poster. Seeing how the image had become "historic", I wanted to get it preserved forever."
