About the Artist
Upcountry Artists (UCA), a non-profit organization, was formed in 1986 to encourage, support, educate artists, and develop public awareness of the arts in Western Maine. Our members represent a variety of artistic media.
We hold quarterly meetings at which various programs such as marketing the arts, panel discussions, art critiques and workshops are held. We keep our members informed of current shows, gallery openings, and other art-related opportunities through our monthly newsletter.
Upcountry Artists awards two scholarships annually to local high school graduates and art major college students. These are awarded to two aspiring artists going on to study art or a related field. Applicants must present a portfolio of their artwork, a written statement of what art means to them, and proof of acceptance at a college/school of art, as well as a recommendation from their art teacher. The applications are then judged by a committee of UCA artists. UCA also offers scholarship opportunities to its members to continue learning, taking classes, and exploring the arts.
Upcountry Artists puts on the annual UCA Art Show at the base lodge at Sugarloaf USA. This art show is held Saturday and Sunday of Columbus Day weekend which coincides with Homecoming Weekend at Sugarloaf USA. Member artists can apply for booth space at the show.
