Gallery Information


Sylvan Gallery represents some of the finest contemporary artists from the New England states. Many of the artists working in oil, watercolor, print media, and sculpture have been exhibiting for over 25 years and have won significant national awards. The common thread among all the artists is their high degree of technical skill and craftsmanship, and their passion to create their own unique visions of the natural beauty that surrounds us.

Our Philosophy

We believe that art can have a positive impact on how you experience the space around you. Our greatest reward is uniting a work produced by an artist using skill and imagination to a serious collector or that first time purchaser who is buying the piece because it is appealing or beautiful to them. What a difference to our well-being when we shape the space around us with objects that draw us in and bring a sense of peace, balance or discovery to our life.

Wiscasset, Maine

September 2017 marks the start of the seventeenth year of Sylvan Gallery. Six years ago we relocated the gallery from Connecticut to the historic village of Wiscasset, approximately 45 miles north of Portland on Route 1. Located on the Sheepscot River, the village is a destination for art and antique collectors alike.

Gallery site updates

This site will be continually updated as new works come in weekly from the artists. New England landscapes, local seascapes, still life, figurative, and marines are represented throughout the year in the gallery’s exhibits.

And a few additional words from us

We invite you to visit us often. There is nothing we like better than introducing collectors, and those who love artwork, to the quality work of these artists. We are pleased that the comment we have heard most often from people visiting for the first time or after many times is that they are impressed at the consistent high quality of artwork that is shown in the gallery.

Wishing you a wonderful visit!

Ann and Rick Scanlan
