Damariscotta Artist Brings Color to Life in Maine

Artist Jan Kilburn gives watercolor painting a whole new meaning. Jan, one of many prominent artists who live and work in Midcoast Maine, has a keen eye for detail and her vibrant paintings of gardens, homes and harbors practically pop off the canvas.

Her gallery at 168 Bristol Road, Damariscotta, is just a couple of miles from Newcastle Inn.  Vacationers in Maine who are exploring the Maine arts scene will want to visit this gallery, where you can see how Jan brings her watercolors to life. She gathers inspiration from her home in Damariscotta, the surrounding area and from the New England coast. If you are in the area during a long weekend you can check out the art shows and exhibitions, which are only offered the third Friday of every month from June to October from 4 to 7:30 p.m.

Jan’s gallery is open year round, and you can call 207-563-8363 to confirm that Jan herself will be there and that the gallery will be open when you are planning to visit.
If you feel like taking your artistic skills to a new level, Jan also teaches watercolor classes in Damariscotta, Portsmouth, and Saco/Ocean Park. More information about Jan’s art classes can be found on her website.
