The MAINE MASTERS PROJECT is an award-winning video series sponsored by the Union of Maine Visual Artists (, a not-for-profit educational organization established in 1975. The Maine Masters Project was begun in 1999 and has created an ongoing series of profiles of some of Maine’s most important and often less recognized visual artists who articulate the importance of art making. There are currently nine completed DVDs (see Artist Videos) with five more in production. The series celebrates art making – it enhances our culture by encouraging people to think and feel more deeply.

Through our curriculum guide series that’s now been launched with the first curriculum guide on painter Stephen Pace, we are beginning an effort to reach a younger audience of high school and college students.
