WELCOME to the Fifth Biennial Art Auction of the Bridgton Art Guild at Gallery 302  

Where does utility meet and merge with beauty?   At this year’s auction featuring painted, sculpted, mosaic or otherwise embellished trays, of course!
Here you will find something to suit every taste – from Maine inspired scenery, trompe l’oeil bacon and eggs, or interesting wildlife, to 3 dimensional display-within-a-tray pieces.  There is simply no predicting all the original ways that  43 artists will choose to express themselves on a simple wooden serving tray.  And that’s the fun of these auctions – you just never know what you will find.  You can serve your loved one breakfast in bed, and when finished, hang your tray on the wall as a one of a kind piece of art!
We can’t express enough appreciation to those of you who attend our auctions and support us throughout the year. This  fundraising auction is critical to our ability to keep the doors of Gallery 302 open year round.   It is with your continued support that the artists and teachers of the Bridgton Art Guild have a lovely place to display our work, and serve the surrounding communities with an extensive roster of art classes, guest artists and demonstrations.  We hope you find here, that special piece of art that will give you enjoyment for years to come.
We have indeed been “serving up art since 2003” and with your gracious support, will continue to do just that.
Come …and enjoy the evening!
Kit Linnell
President, Bridgton Art Guild
