Membership benefits you as an artist or arts lover, by connecting you with a vibrant arts community.
Kennebec Valley Art Association (KVAA) is a membership based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded in 1959. We own and operate the Harlow Gallery on the banks of the Kennebec River in downtown historic Hallowell, Maine. The KVAA supports the artistic development of our member artists, both amateur and professional, by providing opportunities for exhibition and other professional development at the Harlow Gallery. These include workshops, lectures, demonstrations and other special events. Our policy is to make our space available to a broad range of artists’ groups for meetings and events that are important to artistic growth and for the exchange of ideas.
Because we believe the arts are integral to a well-rounded and vibrant community, and can be a key factor in personal growth and self- improvement, we strive to involve the greater community in the arts and to invite them into the Harlow Gallery at every opportunity.
