Including Art by JEAN KIGEL
Nestled in historic Hallowell along the beautiful Kennebec River is the Harlow Gallery, home of the Kennebec Valley Art Association. In 1963 donations from dedicated artists and art enthusiasts afforded the KVAA to purchase a building at 160 Water Street for the express purpose of establishing an exhibition gallery and a center for community-based programs to promote the arts. The gallery was established and dedicated to the memory of George A. Harlow, a former Augusta native, whose family was dedicated to supporting the arts.
Since 1960, the Kennebec Valley Art Association has been a non-profit organization run by local volunteers. The Harlow Gallery provides a venue for local artists to display both two and three dimensional artwork. It is also a community meeting place for live performances such as poetry reading, musical events, and other performances. Each month the Harlow Gallery provides a new exhibit complete with a festive "First Friday" opening reception. These events are open to the public and are held from 5:00- 8:00 PM.
