The mission of the Messler Gallery is to advance design and craftsmanship in wood as a vibrant medium of expression. As an educational forum, the gallery enables students and the public to view work by faculty and other accomplished woodworkers firsthand; it hosts public lectures by instructors and visiting artists; and it offers exhibition experience to students and Studio Fellows.

As the only venue in Maine dedicated to the year-round exhibition of studio furniture and wood art, the Messler Gallery provides much-needed exposure for regional furniture makers, turners, and carvers.

The Messler Gallery also serves a national audience through juried competitions, invitational exhibitions, and traveling shows.

We invite you to visit the Messler Gallery Monday – Friday, 9am to 5pm.
