Brief description of anticipated event


Set in the heart of Chester village, Maple and Main Gallery of Fine Art’s historic building and gallery offer a charming setting for private parties, business meetings, fundraisers, workshops, and other special events. We're housed in one of Chester's most iconic buildings, a late 1700s structure that began as a ship's chandlery. Masts from schooners support the building which retains its colonial architecture, and walls adorned with art lend a unique atmosphere as well as ample space for your next private function. Conveniently located off RT 9, Exit 6, Maple and Main Gallery of Fine Art offers year-round availability for your next special event.

Rental Fee: Events are $75 per hour plus $20 an hour to pay an onsite gallery host. This $20-an-hour fee includes one hour for set up and clean up plus the employee's presence and assistance during the event. We are also available for events and meetings of non-profit organizations. Please call to discuss details. The gallery can accommodate up to 50 people. Private functions can be held year-round.

Artist Rental of the Stone Gallery

Maple and Main is offering its Stone Gallery for monthly use by artists for solo or group shows.

The space is generous and can accommodate about 36 plus medium paintings. It’s also an interesting space with an exposed granite wall - part of the original late 1700s construction of the building.

It’s well-lit and there’s room for free-standing easels, sculpture pedestals and one or two tables for refreshments for an opening. 

Maple and Main includes the Stone Gallery artists in its publicity – website, bi-monthly (or more) email blasts, facebook and print and online media. The gallery will put a painting or sculpture from the show at the top of the stairs leading to the lower level with signage.  Artists may offer unframed, matted, original work but no prints, cards or other such items will be allowed.

The Stone Gallery artists will be included in all Maple and Main openings and events but it is highly recommended the artists have their own receptions at the beginning of their show. Maple and Main will also publicize this event.
