About the Gallery

Richard Boyd Art Gallery is owned and operated by Richard F. Boyd, a retired Nurse Anesthetist and ceramicist, and his life partner Pamela a retired business woman. Rick and Pam own a home on Peaks Island in Portland, ME where he has lived for more than four decades.

Rick moved from Pennsylvania to Maine in the 1970’s. His first business Second Story Pottery, co-owned with Stewart Kestenbaum, was located on Exchange Street in Portland’s Old Port. In 1976 he purchased his home on Peaks Island and closed Second Story Pottery. 

Through the early 1990’s his private studio, was located on part of the first floor of his home. Around 1996, Rick had a two story building built on the front of his property. Upon completion, he moved his pottery studio to the second floor of the building. The first floor was used for a variety of things, including storage until 2006, when Rick and Pam took part of the first floor and turned it into as Rick says, “A very rough make shift gallery.”

When Rick retired from Nursing in 2011, the first floor of that building went through a major renovation. Richard Boyd Art Gallery re-opened in March of 2012 with “PIA: A 20th Century Retrospective” exhibit of visual art created by Portland artists between 1975 and 1985.

Since the grand re-opening in 2012, with few exceptions, Richard Boyd Art Gallery has presented an exhibit of fine arts every month. The Gallery represents a diverse group of established and emerging visual artists and their works, including paintings and sculpture in a broad range of styles and variety of mediums, as well as a select offering of blown glass and works in clay.

During the months of April through October the Gallery is open free of charge between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. daily. From November through the end of March the Gallery is open free of charge between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Additional days and times can be scheduled by appointment.
