KW Contemporary Art is focused on the exhibition of work from emerging, mid-career, and established contemporary artists from around the world. Founded in 2020 KW Contemporary Art is curated by director and owner Kiersten Wilcox. The gallery can be found in Lower Village, Kennebunk near historical Dock Square, the main shopping and arts district of Kennebunk and Kennebunkport.
