The Keag River Gallery is approximately 4 miles outside of Rockland heading down Rt 73. Stop off at the Keag Store for a Lobster roll before taking a left onto Dublin Road. (Heard tell they have a great crab roll too!) The gallery is just up on the right a bit.

It is a lovely space, also available for community functions, with a full service print studio and a gorgeous view off the back deck.
