Eclipse Gallery was established in 1987 in Bar Harbor, Maine, which is a historically well-known bayside town near Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island.
For decades, the former owners, Linda and Hank, dedicated themselves to representing hundreds of American fine craftsmen nationwide. Their focus has been on "Contemporary" American Fine Crafts, providing outstanding collections of unique art including art glass, ceramics and metal, complimented by objects in other media, such as unusual lamps, wall art, stone sculpture and handcrafted furniture.
When Ruddy assumed ownership in 2007 after the co-founders retired, she kept the same values Linda and Hank passed down. The bond they share has only grown deeper and stronger with the passing years.
In the spring of 2018, the gallery in Bar Harbor was closed when Ruddy relocated, but nothing could stop their friends and clients from continuing to enjoy the diverse collections of artworks at the online Eclipse!
