Maine Media has two gallery spaces: PhoPa Gallery in Portland and the Maine Media Gallery in Rockport. Both feature an ever-changing roster of work by students, alumni, faculty, and other exciting Maine artists. Stop by for a dose of inspiration and connect with our artistic community.
132 Washington Ave
PhoPa Gallery is our Portland exhibition space. The gallery is a collaboration between Maine Media and co-founders Bruce Brown and Jon Edwards where we exhibit (pho)tography and works on (pa)per by Maine-based artists. PhoPa maintains a special focus on highlighting emerging artists rarely seen in Portland, in addition to showcasing work by members of the Maine Media community. Last year we were thrilled to share exhibits like Seeing Through, a group show featuring 13 Maine artists under 30, and Signs of Your Identity, Daniella Zalcman’s series which won the 2017 Arnold Newman Prize. We also welcomed a new Gallery Director, Sophia Namara, at the end of last year, so stop by and say hello!
The Maine Media Gallery + Tim Whelan’s Bookstore
18 Central St
Just a short walk from our campus, our namesake gallery is an intimate space where we showcase work by our students, alumni, and faculty. It’s also home to Timothy Whelan’s Bookstore, loved for its incredible selection of photobooks and classics on the history and theory of the medium. Over the summer, we also host a number of events in our Rockport Gallery, including book signings, exhibition openings, and artist talks. The gallery is a quick five-minute walk from campus and just down the street from the Opera house, stop by during lunch or before an evening lecture–it’s worth it!
On View at PhoPa: LIMINAL- photographic work from seven Maine artists
On view from August 1-September 1, 2018, Liminal showcases projects from seven artists at the start of their careers. Through the medium of photography, these artists look thoughtfully at spaces that are often neglected by mainstream society and find comfort and inspiration on the margins of our everyday experience.

Symphytum officianle and other works, is a show of work made in collaboration and individually by Maine artists Rebecca Goodale and Stephen Burt. The show will be on view in the Maine Media Gallery from July 19-August 12, 2018.
