The Maine Highlands Council for the Arts

The Maine Highlands Council for the Arts exists to support, strengthen, and encourage all branches of the arts in the region.  This is accomplished by providing opportunities for collegiality and community among artists, providing a central location for online information of local artists, and encouraging culture and creativity in the Maine Highlands region.

One of the best-kept secrets of the Piscataquis region is its arts community. Painters, potters, musicians, dancers, actors, poets, and creative minds of all sorts thrive here. The Maine Highlands Council for the Arts (MHCA) is in the process of creating an online Artists Directory, a database of the rich artistic resources in the area. 

Imagine you have dreamed of learning a musical instrument- perhaps guitar, banjo or ukulele. With the MHCA Artists Directory, you will be able to search for teachers quickly and easily. Or perhaps you are an artist, trying to gain greater visibility. A simple online form will enable you to make your contact information and details about your work easily findable. Best of all, you will be part of a collective of artists, creating a presence that can draw people to find their own creativity.

All performing and visual artists and teachers are invited to be listed on the Artists’ Directory.
