MSAD 75 Student Virtual Art Show

Our annual Topsham Schools Student Art exhibit is one that always brings smiles to visitors’ faces and we did not want anyone to miss out on that! We are happy that we were able to open this exhibit up to all of MSAD75 and host the exhibit in our virtual gallery. In this online exhibit are works of art created in school under the guidance of our wonderful art teachers as well as examples of what children have been creating at home for the pure enjoyment of it. Visit the exhibit to enjoy these delightful works of creativity and self-expression. Click the image below to enter the gallery.

 Exhibit runs May 16-June 9, 2020.

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.

Thanks to the Crooker family, 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 judged art and photography exhibits: The Joy of Art and The Joy of the Lens.

She fully embraces our belief that art should be accessible to all and is committed to offering exhibits that reflect the talent and narrative of our community and Maine at large.
