The Messler Gallery


The Messler Gallery is closed for the spring and summer as part of the Center’s overall response plan for the coronavirus pandemic.

It reopens on September 18 with a new show: Out of Bounds: The Art of Croquet.

The mission of the Messler Gallery is to advance design and craftsmanship in wood as a vibrant medium of expression. As an educational forum, the gallery enables students and the public to view work by faculty and other accomplished woodworkers firsthand; it hosts public lectures by instructors and visiting artists; and it offers exhibition experience to students and Studio Fellows.

As the only venue in Maine dedicated to the year-round exhibition of studio furniture and wood art, the Messler Gallery provides much-needed exposure for regional furniture makers, turners, and carvers.

The Messler Gallery also serves a national audience through juried competitions, invitational exhibitions, and traveling shows.

We invite you to visit the Messler Gallery Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm, and Saturdays from 10am-4pm.
