In 1993, the Grand Manan Art Gallery came into existence under the aegis of the Grand Manan Historical Society and the guidance of Wade Reppert. The Locke family generously donated the land and building, which underwent renovation under architect John Large’s supervision. The gallery became an official incorporation in 2010, with the mission to offer island inhabitants and visitors a diverse range of quality exhibits featuring both renowned and up-and-coming artists.
As a non-profit organization, the Gallery is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors who take care of the building, organize exhibitions, and assist in various ways such as setting up displays, crafting press releases, preparing refreshments for opening events, and welcoming visitors.
The Gallery operates without financial support from any government level and depends on the continued loyalty of regular patrons who renew their memberships each year.
You can find the Grand Manan Art Gallery at 21 Cedar Street, Grand Manan.
