What is Art At Home? 
Art at Home is a unique, self-guided house tour of local residences featuring personal collections, distinctive decor and more. The participating homes/venues, all in East Winthrop, were selected to showcase not only their art collections, but also their relationships with their art, and the way art and living space are integrated in their personal spaces.

Of the very first tour in 2011 Hallowell resident Dawn Gallagher said, “[Art at Home] goes beyond art on view at a gallery or in a museum. Art is transformed within the context of a home, and it transforms the home as well. The room itself becomes an art composition, reflecting who lives there.”

Tour highlights:
Kennebec Cider is hosting select artists from the area including Diane Harwood Pottery, Florence Daly, and artwork by Kennebec Cider owner Nathan Hall. Kennebec Cider will also host a local food truck along with free cider tastings. Other tour highlights include the home of Hallowell City Manager Nate Rudy and the historic home formerly owned by Georgia Fuller Weisendanger which has been undergoing major renovations for the past three years.
