2018 Island Treasure

Annual Art Exhibition

Each year the Museum presents an art exhibition in the new Gallery Building showcasing a particular artist or period of Monhegan’s artistic history using  materials from our collection, and from interested friends.

The show for 2018:

An Island Treasure: Celebrating 50 Years of the Monhegan Museum

As one of the many ways that we will be marking our 50th anniversary during the summer of 2018, we will be mounting an exhibition of works from the museum’s permanent collection that details the history of Monhegan as a destination for artists.  From Aaron Draper Shattuck who visited in 1858, to Don Stone, and dozens in between we will celebrate 160 years of artists finding inspiration on Monhegan.


Catalogs for this show and others are available.
