“Are these by a woman?” Here at The Peace Gallery, I often hear this refrain as people browse our art. Having grown up with a World War II Marine Corps Veteran mother, this question comes as no surprise. Women Veterans do not get the recognition they earned and deserve. On Memorial Day weekend, The Peace Gallery celebrates its one-year anniversary with the grand opening of our summer exhibition “Proudly She Served,” featuring the artwork of five women Veterans. We will showcase the dynamic work of these women all summer, along with work by other newly featured Veteran artists. The show will run from Memorial Day through October. The Peace Gallery has accomplished much in our first year. Last summer’s show was a World War II retrospective. It was a powerful and moving presentation, attracting more than 5,000 visitors to the gallery and Damariscotta. An additional 2,000 people frequented our space for wellness classes, monthly coffee houses, creative workshops, and other community events. This season will generate substantially higher numbers.www.thepeacegallery.com
