Welcome to Lord Hall Gallery

Lord Hall Gallery is a laboratory for learning and a cultural hub at UMaine Orono. Exhibitions and events at the Gallery are designed to spark curiosity and incite dialogue across campus.

The Gallery connects artists, students, faculty, staff, researchers, and the larger community through its diverse exhibitions of contemporary art. We present both group and solo shows, representing the work of local, regional, national, and international artists. UMaine student and faculty artwork is celebrated through our annual and bi-annual exhibitions.

Lord Hall Gallery is committed to diversity and inclusion in all of our programming. All exhibitions and events are free, accessible, and open to the public. Outreach at the local and state-wide level is central to our mission.

Lord Hall Gallery is located on the mall of the University of Maine in the historic Lord Hall and is open Monday-Friday from 9:00am-4:00pm. Events are free, accessible and open to the public. All are welcome.

For inquiries and proposal submissions please contact Diana Baumbach, Director of Galleries at diana.baumbach@maine.edu.
