The Gallery

Conceived by Gallery Owner Linda LaCroix in the early 2000's, Aperto Fine Art opened its doors in May 2022. Linda had been the Director of two fine art galleries in Nantucket, MA: Gallery Blue a contemporary art gallery and Levis Fine Art hosting the Moderns including Elaine DeKooning, Rockwell Kent, Alice Neal, the Fauvists, and more. After moving to Bridgton in 2019, Linda's favorite childhood haunt, she and Gallery Partner Jim Kidder purchased the iconic green building with the idea that they would establish a new fine art venue in Bridgton.

Our Mission

Our mission is to showcase artists who push the edges of their work ever further, daring to stand in unfamiliar creative space, the strange attractors whose art soothes, challenges, questions, comforts, and demands of us our attention as we pass by.

Our Vision

Jim and Linda believe this reach is possible, to engage artists who can and do offer the unfamiliar and cause us to pause. They bring these works to you through Aperto Fine Art out of the shear joy of being amongst the work of such souls. They invite you to share in what they have found.
