In the spring of 2018, Watershed purchased an historic 2,000 sq ft home on 22 acres of land adjacent to our main campus. Building renovations took place throughout the next year, and in spring 2019, Watershed opened the Joan Pearson Watkins House. The space includes a new gallery, in addition to Watershed’s administrative offices and a small retail shop.
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the gallery is closed until further notice. Sign up to receive Watershed’s monthly e-newsletter to receive program updates.
Masters & Apprentices
Watershed partnered with the Maine Craft Association (MCA) to present the inaugural exhibition in the Joan Pearson Watkins House. The show features work by artists who took part in MCA’s 2019 Craft Apprentice Program. The seven pairs of master craftspeople and apprentices worked together over the course of nine months. Selected works made during the apprenticeship are included in this culminating exhibition. .
