The Ogunquit Museum of American Art (OMAA) was founded by Lost Generation artist Henry Strater and opened in 1953. Closely connected to two of America’s earliest art colonies that directly contributed to the roots of American modernism, OMAA today houses a permanent collection of important paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints and photographs from the late 1800s to the present and is the only museum in Maine devoted exclusively to the exhibition, preservation, and interpretation of American art. A short walk from Perkins Cove, the museum and its three acres of sculpture gardens overlook Narrow Cove and the Atlantic Ocean. OMAA is open May 1 through October 31, daily 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit www.ogunquitmuseum.org.
Rector’s exhibit at the Ogunquit Museum is sponsored by Greenhut Galleries in Portland, Maine.
