Andrea Irvine, an ardent art collector, gave River Tree Arts a generous donation by gifting us the former Collin's Auction House for a larger and more visible location.
In honoring that gift we named the larger gallery for Andrea. The Irvine name graces the entrance; within those walls we have at least a dozen shows year.
Our annual abstract show starts off our season in the spring, followed by photography and then the popular “Maine Scene", a more traditional painting exhibit reserved for the summertime. These shows are curated by members of the Portland Museum of Art. Juried pieces assure us a level of quality important in a galleria's reputation. RTA highlights textile, sculpture, fine furniture, and a multitude of fine crafts created locally during Prelude & the holiday season.
River Tree Arts hosts local schools, elementary through high school, as well as emerging artists in college so they may display their work in a professional setting.
The Irvine Gallery is open to many community organizations such as the Pastel Painters of Maine and the Art Guild to exhibit.
By invitation, we use the adjoining Community Gallery to showcase our students & faculty. Seeing our instructor’s artwork is inspiring for students and the community.
River Tree provides the Entrance Hall Gallery for students and other visiting artists. We try to use all the spaces we can for our visual artists, as hanging one's work is as important as creating it. Representation is the final step in honoring the creative process.
Showcasing our art, music, dance and theater is the soul of River Tree Arts.
