This specialized gallery represents living artists who honor their cultural traditions. Located in an 1813 post and beam barn in the village of Kennebunkport, Home & Away features Inuit and Native American art and jewelry. The owner’s love of Inuit art began during a childhood trip to Canada, and he began collecting during a later trip to Alaska, and added to the collection over the years. His fascination with indigenous art led him to want to share the work with other collectors as well as members of the public who are not familiar with it. The gallery features the work of artists whose vision allows them to step beyond tradition into unexplored territory, continuing the evolution of their culture’s artwork that has taken place over hundreds or even thousands of years.
