Saco Bay Artists

Our mission is to help members to further their skills

About Us

Saco Bay Artists seeks to enhance members' skills and provide forums to exhibit and sell their artwork. Those forums include workshops, critiques, live demonstrations, group outings, paint outs and summer art shows. The group also participates in the promotion of art and culture as well as public service in the local community. During the summer months artists from all over New England show their work in the Saco Bay Artists shows held on the library lawn in Ocean Park, Maine

The Saco Bay Artists meet the second Monday of each month at Saco Parks and Recreation, 75 Franklin St., Saco, ME, Room 203 (See MAP). Meetings alternate between Noon and 6:30pm. All artists are welcome to attend our meetings. Please visit, and join us if you like!

*Painting days are open painting sessions where people bring their own materials and subject matter. There is no live model or set up, but people enjoy the comraderie and help each other. Sessions are from 10 am to 3 pm.
