We welcome new members of all ages – professional and emerging artists and patrons – and it is easy to join. To join or rejoin DIAA, click HERE to download a pdf of the 2017 Membership package. You can also reach us through the Contact Us page.

We are a community of approximately 100 artists (painters, sculptors, printmakers, jewelers, photographers, fiber artists and more) and patrons interested in the arts. Most of us live in Maine at least part of the year, but there is no residency requirement.

DIAA is a member-run Association. We manage the Gallery, promote our exhibitions and conduct community outreach.

Building on a 40+ year history, DIAA provides opportunities for members to exhibit new work and be part of a vibrant and supportive group of artists working in various fine art and fine craft media. 

Exhibits change every two weeks during the summer months and the Gallery is open from 10 am to 6 pm daily. Receptions to meet the artists are held on the first Sunday (4 to 6 pm) after an exhibit opens.

In 2015-2017 DIAA hosted a series of presentations and discussions entitled "ART matters" and "ART matters 2,"  convening artists and those interested in art from surrounding communities for an afternoon of exchanges about various art topics. 

Our artists are committed to promoting the visual arts in this part of Maine, supporting local student artists, and encouraging conversations about the arts within the community.
