Our gallery celebrates agricutlure though art, capturing the vibrancy of Maine's farms and farmers, their intitmate relationship to the earth, the crops they grow and animals they tend. Founded in 2008, the MFT Gallery is a "gallery with a mission." It has attracted artist 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 efforts to secure Maine's agricutlural future.
