Martin Friedman, Director

Martin is a New England native with a deep passion for art and community. As a child, Martin was inspired by the diverse landscapes he saw on his yearly trips to Sebago and Long Lake during the summer months. In adulthood, he moved to Maine and continued to find inspiration in many forms, including the time he enjoyed on the water as operations manager and captain of the ferry boats that travel between the mainland and Frye Island.

Martin’s love for diversity and contrast in life is reflected most prominently in his affinity for a wide range of artistic styles. When the barn in Casco became available, Martin saw an opportunity to capture the essence of his love for art in a way that would engage the Maine community and bring inspiration to artists and art lovers alike. As a result, the mars in Sol has become one of Maine’s most unique galleries and a genuine treasure of the Sebago area.
