A Lubec, Maine Art Gallery and Gift Shop
In June 2007, in the northern reaches of Down East Maine, we at Northern Tides opened our doors. Founded on a strong belief in fine artisan-made one-of-a-kind art and fine crafts, Made in Maine, and in "shop local," we searched out and continue to offer some of the best and most creative art and artisan craft that coastal Maine and the Canadian Maritimes has to offer.
Northern Tides is housed in a restored 100-year-old building on the Lubec Narrows, part of the greater Bay of Fundy, overlooking Campobello Island, New Brunswick, Canada. The building has as rich a history as the Town of Lubec itself and is just as much of a work of art as that which is represented inside.
Lubec is the easternmost town of the United States, where the sun rises first, and is a short drive to the West Quoddy Lighthouse, the easternmost point of our continental United States. We are surrounded by natural beauty, which we have tried to reflect in the selection of art, artisan craft, and books and cards in our gift shop and gallery.
Featured works from our artists, artisans, and authors
We are so pleased that 15 New Artisans have joined Northern Tides for 2012 totaling over 100 local, Maine, Canadian Maritime and New England artists, artisans and authors. We'll be adding their art here as it arrives. It's going to be a fun, colorful year!
