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.
