Maine Coast Sojourn
Painting a Legacy of Land Conservation
“Lives and works on the Maine coast”—that’s a phrase often found in a Mainer’s bio. But in the case of painter Timothy P. Wilson, it’s quite literally true. Timothy is traveling to Maine Coast Heritage Trust preserves up and down the coast, painting in all seasons, in all kinds of weather, and all for a cause: the ongoing effort to conserve the Maine coast and keep it open to all.
Paintings made through the Maine Coast Sojourn will be exhibited by Cove Street Arts in Portland in September 2021, with both the artist and gallery donating a percentage of sales to support the work to conserve the coast. In the meantime, we invite you to follow along on Timothy’s Sojourn on social media—links below!

“What I realized was it was important to me to act as a land steward, I felt needed to promote this experience of conservation; to show that this experience of painting in the landscape is made possible because people are taking care of the land and preserving things. It was really important for me to do something positive.”
