Our business is about building, what better investment than a library. Ted Crooker

The Crooker Gallery has been provided through the generosity of Harry C. Crooker & Sons general contractors. Foremost in sponsoring local projects, Harry C. Crooker and Sons has shown a consistent commitment to our community for many years.

Hidden in plain sight inside the Topsham Public Library is Topsham’s first public art gallery. This gallery, created to provide a place where art is accessible to everyone, is host to a diverse display of artistic expression throughout the year. We have seen wood carving, ceramics, photography, and painting. There has even been a display of exotic hats and Japanese kimonos. It is also the home to our annual juried art and photography exhibits: The Joy of Art and The Joy of the Lens.

Volunteer Gallery Coordinator, Consuelo G. Bailey spends many hours finding the right works for each exhibit. A talented artist and teacher in her own right, Connie makes the gallery a place where artists and community members can explore visual arts together.

 

Artist Talk
At the heart of our gallery program is a unique opportunity to interact with each artist. For every exhibit there is the Artist Talk. Usually held on a Saturday morning at 11:00, this reception features an up close and personal visit with the artist.
