The MFT Gallery celebrates agicutlure through art, capturing the vibrancy of Maine's farms and farmers- their intimate relationship to the earth, the crops they grow and animals they tend. Founded in 2008, our gallery is a "gallery with a mission." It has attracted artists from all over Maine and beyond, artists who share a love for our rural heritage and are committed to the earth's well-being. We hope that through this gallery, more people will come to understand the promise of farming, and as a result, lend fervent support to our effores to secure Maine's agricultural future.
