About the Gallery
Voted Portland's Best Gallery 2008 in the Portland Phoenix poll!!

Whitney Art Works was opened in 1999 in Greenport, a small town on eastern Long Island, New York. The gallery was re-located to Portland, Maine in the fall of 2003.

In the course of 8 years in Portland, Peter and Deborah Whitney converted 3 spaces for the gallery - 142 High Street, 45 York Street, and 492 Congress Street. All of these venues became a hub on First Friday nights!
There was also a window gallery at Walker Terrace.

Portland's Leader in Contemporary Art...

Since 1999, curator Deb Whitney was committed to having Whitney Art Works serve as a supportive commercial venue for the exhibition of works of both emerging and established contemporary artists. Exhibitions featured the work of dozens of painters, photographers, printmakers, and sculptors. A wide spectrum of visual arts were exhibited, as well as a host of events including music, performance, and the presentation of the written word.

In 2011 Whitney Art Works ceased to exhibit, but, the legacy of quality and artist support lives on!
