The breathtaking beauty of the Kennebunks has drawn artists from near and far for decades. They find incredible inspiration in the ever-changing mood of the sea, the tranquil beauty of a tidal inlet or the special kind of sunset only the coast of Maine can provide. Painters, photographers and sculptors, as well as those who create beautiful handcrafted items have formed a significant artists’ colony here in the Kennebunks. You’re sure to find works of art that rival anything found elsewhere.

Unlike other seaside villages that are an artist’s home for the summer, the Kennebunks’ artistic community thrives here year round and is able to capture the beauty of the ever-changing landscape of the four seasons. Spend time during your trip experiencing the work of these incredibly talented individuals. The work of these artisans is on display year round in the galleries found in Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, Cape Porpoise and Arundel.

The Kennebunk-Kennebunkport-Arundel Chamber of Commerce hosts the Art Trail of the Kennebunks, a free self-guided walking tour of art galleries, studios and organizations. Admission to all galleries is free and open to the public.
