Seagull Shop Silent Auction

seagulldonation

The Saltwater Artists Gallery’s President Lynn Thompson presented Brooke Cotter, owner of the Seagull Shop & Restaurant  a donation check to help cover expenses after the fire last fall that totally destroyed the property.  The Gallery held a successful auction of artwork donated by its members this summer and collected monetary donations from customers coming in. There were strong feelings that the Seagull Shop was too vital to the community for it not to reopen


The Saltwater Artists Galleryheld two fund-raising silent auctions, one in 2020 and one in 20231 to help raise funds for the Sea Gull Shop and Restaurant rebuilding project. The Sea Gull, a Pemaquid Point icon, was destroyed in a fire in 2020 and faced rebuilding at pandemic prices. Wishing to support our neighbors and community. A number of gallery artists donated art (paintings, photographs, jewelry, glass, wood) with all proceeds dedicated to the building fund to help our neighbors face this difficult situation.
