The Gallery at Cliff House
While Cliff House was being constructed during the late 1800’s, Ogunquit was captivating an eclectic array of artists drawn to its natural beauty and charm. Word spread about Ogunquit’s romantic scenery and the destination soon evolved as a summer respite for big city artists to ex-press themselves on canvas and in theatre, transforming this beautiful place by the sea into “An Artist Colony”. Today, Cliff House has created The Gallery as its own “canvas” to highlight and pay homage to the talented artists which abound. Enjoy your journey through the passageway and immerse yourself in the art.
