JoAnne Houlsen, a long-time member of the Eastport Gallery has agreed to serve as its president for 2022. She has worked as a professional artist in central Maine for over 30 years and focuses mostly on landscape and coastal work. Although not a resident of Eastport, she visits frequently during the summers and stays with her good friend Diana Young when she is in town.

JoAnne believes that because she is not a full-time fixture in Eastport, the true essence of a cooperative gallery will be on display as members step forward to make sure all is operating smoothly when she is out of town.
She and all the Eastport Gallery members hope this coming year will be as successful as in the past and all look forward to greeting you in person during the upcoming season.
