Artists Retreat Studios & Gallery

A Working Studio Gallery with Artist Accomodations

First, it's a working studio gallery. It features the kaleidoscopic imagery and fabric creations of Trina Stephenson and the fine art landscapes of award-winning artist Michael Chesley Johnson.

Second, it's an artists' retreat. We have found that people are more likely to buy from artists directly and studio galleries than from impersonal galleries. Our concept is to have artists stay for a period of time so they can paint, write, compose or create from the inspiration of the local scenery. At the Artists Retreat Studios & Gallery property in Lubec, we will offer artists' "residencies," and then the artists can actively market their work during the time that they are in residence (and perhaps beyond). There is a modest charge for the accommodation and studio combination in Lubec of $500 per week or $85 per night (two adults max) with a minimum of 3 nights.

There are also several weeks based out of the Artists Retreat Studios & Gallery. These are 4 day plein air painting workshop taught by Michael Chesley Johnson.
