Ċarhus Gallery was formed over the winter of 2007 in Belfast, Maine.

The Gallery will be showing contemporary work with a focus on local artists. In addition, a series of events and guest artists from the region will be presented.

The vision of the gallery is to create a space where lovers of community, form, and design as well as admirers of contemporary and unique art feel welcome.

Ċarhus Gallery strives
to keep a fresh outlook on ways to create and present art, and looks forward to the path this project will lead us on.

Luna Madidus  

2nd Anniversary Concert 

Saturday March 12, 7pm

$7 suggested donation

Mid-Coast jazz group Luna Madidus celebrates their 2 year anniversary with a concert at Ċarhus Gallery on March 12 at 7:00 PM. Throughout their 2 year history the band has crossed the boundaries of pop music, poetry, 19th century classical music, and more recently dipped a toe into the theater of the macabre with a musical setting of Edward Gorey's " Gashleycrumb Tinies".


The band's eclectic sound is due to the multifarious nature of the musicians who make up Luna Madidus. "We're all somewhat chameleon-like", says pianist and composer Tom Luther. "Everyone in this band has interest and skill in many different genres of music, and in some cases, different art forms. It's really helped to build a sound that is more and more undefinable, which I think is a sure sign of progress."

For this show, Luna Madidus will present several premiere performances of brand new works composed for this occasion.


Admission is by suggested donation of $7 and light refreshments will be served.

We hope to see you at the gallery soon!
