Cumberland Art Bank
Celebrating Art That Inspires
The Cumberland Art Bank is in its early years. It was originally established in 2017 by the Town of Parrsboro before its dissolution and was the vision of Taylor Redmond the then Main Street Project coordinator. When the town dissolved and became a responsibility of the town the art bank also moved and is now call the Cumberland Art Bank. The responsibility of this young collection now resides with Parrsboro Creative and is administered by a committee of this organization.
The objective is to build an art collection that is Cumberland County inspired. It would represent the best of visual expression in Cumberland, encourage artistic creation in this region, stimulate public interest in the visual arts, and raise awareness of Cumberland County artists and their work. Initially, this Art Bank Collection would live in Parrsboro but be available for exhibition throughout Cumberland County.
A jury who will make their selection in accordance with the vision of the Cumberland Art Bank will select paintings. There will be an annual call for artists to submit their work for consideration.
The collection is made possible through the sale of giclée prints of the collection and by donation.
