Just a short walk from our campus, our namesake gallery is an intimate space where we showcase work by our students, alumni, faculty, and other innovative Maine artists. Over the summer, we host book signings, exhibition openings, and artist talks. In addition to the rotating exhibits on view, the gallery has an incredible selection of work made by our renowned faculty that are available for sale.

Tim Whelan’s Bookstore
The gallery is also home to Timothy Whelan’s Bookstore, a local favorite and a highlight for many of our students. Tim’s selection of photo books is full of classics and soon-to-be favorites, plus plenty of books signed by published MMW faculty. You’ll find something new each time you visit, so stop by to browse the books or just chat with Tim.
PhoPa Gallery, our Portland gallery, closed on September 1, 2018. A longtime collaboration between Bruce Brown, Jon Edwards, and MMW, PhoPa exhibited (pho)tography and works on (pa)per by Maine-based artists. The gallery maintained a special focus on highlighting emerging artists rarely seen in Portland, in addition to showcasing work by members of the Maine Media community. We are so grateful to Bruce and Jon, our gallery managers and volunteers, and all of the community members who made PhoPa such a welcoming and inspiring artistic hub.
