No matter the art on the wall, Narrow Cove is almost always the first thing you see when you walk into the Ogunquit Museum of American Art. It’s the cove right in front of the museum, and is the image of rocks and water – and often boats under sail or power – that is framed by the museum’s ocean-side glass wall.

For its 65th season, the museum has re-imagined its Barn Gallery for “The View from Narrow Cove,” an examination of the art colonies that thrived in Ogunquit before the museum opened in 1953 and the artists they inspired. The exhibition represents a deep dive into the museum’s permanent collection, and includes many pieces of art that haven’t been on view, many by contemporary Maine artists who are part of the Ogunquit community through their association with the museum.

For its season-opening exhibition, the Ogunquit Museum takes a broad look at Narrow Cove
