Conceived by Gallery Owner Linda LaCroix in the early 2000's, Aperto Fine Art opened its doors in May 2022. Linda at the time was the Director of two fine art galleries in Nantucket, Massachusetts: Gallery Blue a contemporary art gallery and Levis Fine Art housing the Moderns including DeKooning, Rockwell Kent, Alice Neal, the Fauvists, and more. After moving to Bridgton in 2019, her favorite childhood summer haunt, she and her Gallery Partner Jim Kidder jumped on the opportunity to purchase the iconic green building with the idea that they would bring fine art to Bridgton.

Our mission is to showcase artists who stand on the shoulders of giants yet push the edges of their art ever further. Contemporary fine art possess a whirlwind of ideas, techniques and choreographies, but few achieve such an outcome.
Jim and Linda believe the reach is possible and have engaged artists who can and do offer this greatness. They bring these works to Aperto Fine Art out of the shear joy of being amongst the new giants of our time and invite folks to share in what they have found.
