Thirty years ago a group of local Maine artists came together to create Island Artisans, a shop dedicated to showing the best of Maine arts and crafts. Continuing in that tradition, we offer the finest original works of over 100 of Maine’s leading artisans.

We invite you to visit us on your next trip to Mount Desert Island.


Authentic regional creativity

All the work at Island Artisans galleries reflects the authentic regional creativity expressed by the talented entrepreneur makers of Maine. Located in the heart of downtown Bar Harbor and Northeast Harbor, we give our visitors the gleeful opportunity to collect these unique items of rare cultural character. The store is currently owned and managed by Chong and Judi Lim, Sue Hill, Abigail Goodyear, Margaret Bundy, and Linda and Ken Perrin.
