Over the last couple of years this historic little school house has undergone significant construction and cosmetic upgrades but we’re not done yet! A fine art auction is on tap for April 26 with the hopes of adding much-needed dollars to the building’s roofing fund. Please join us and help preserve the Matolcsy Art Center.

The Western Maine Art Group (WMAG), is headquartered in the Lajos Matolcsy Arts Center, formerly the first school house in Norway, at 480 Main Street, during its art season from May through October. At other times you may contact us through the Main Street Gallery or via westernmaineartgroup @


During the season visitors are welcome to view exhibits of paintings, photography, sculptures and hand-crafted jewelry---all the work of local Maine artisans and WMAG members. A busy season with exciting themed artwork and special events, student art shows, and art lectures are planned for this year. Art classes will be held in the Matolcsy Arts Center during the summer as well. Plan on visiting often throughout the season.

Landscapes, florals, still life, sculptures, jewelry, pens, mini-paintings and more beckon visitors. Twenty-five WMAG artists are represented in the gallery. Exhibits are changed often and a First Friday Artist of the Month Reception celebrates new work with a 10% discount throughout the gallery.
