Please join us in historic downtown Hallowell on Saturday, September 29th to experience our second annual Art at Home tour. A unique twist on the usual garden/house tour model, Art at Home offers a self-guided tour of seven residences with private art collections. The participating homes, all in or near downtown Hallowell, were selected to showcase not only their residents’ art collections, but also their relationships with their art, and the way art and living space are integrated in their personal spaces. Ticket holders will enjoy the opportunity to view an eclectic variety of art ranging from a Picasso to a vintage paint-by-number collection, with a strong showing of exceptional Maine artists.
Of the 2011 tour 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.”  
The Harlow Gallery will provide ticket holders with a detailed program guide including a map, and complete information on the individual collections. Volunteer docents will be present at each site to answer questions and give directions.  “Art at Home” ticket holders will be encouraged to explore Hallowell’s many fine dining and shopping establishments – many Hallowell business will be offering promotional discounts to ticket holders all day long, and these will be listed in the program guide.
In addition, ticket holders will be entered in a random prize drawing for one of three original pieces of artwork (donated by Ellen Gibson, Nancy Meader and Mary Becker Weiss)  on the day of the event (scroll down to see a picture). The prize drawing will take place at a reception at Easy Street Lounge – (which is also on the Art at Home tour itself) – at 7 Front Street in Hallowell at 2:30 pm. Please note that ticketholders must be present to win!
Ticket prices are $25 in advance or $30 the day of the event. To purchase tickets, or for more information, please contact the Harlow Gallery at 622-3813 or email
