Barn Gallery is owned and administered by the Ogunquit Arts Collaborative, a volunteer-run 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit corporation that is funded by contributions from the Friends of Ogunquit Art, gifts and donations, management fees and fundraising activities. The OAC is also the proud recipient of grants from the Maine Arts Commission, Kennebunk Savings Bank and The Joan Dwyer and Jane Dwyer Charitable Fund of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation.

OAC has participated in two statewide collaborations of Maine arts organizations ranging from the Portland Museum of Art and Bowdoin College to the Ogunquit Museum of Art and Barn Gallery. The Maine Drawing Project in 2011 and The Maine Photo Project in 2015 featured exhibitions chosen by the various venues to illustrate the richness and variety of their collections and, in the case of Barn Gallery, the inventiveness and skill of their member artists. Barn Gallery held two exhibitions and a variety of panel discussions and programs for each Project. The catalogs, Ogunquit Art Association: Maine Drawing Project Where to Draw the Line and Barn Gallery: Maine Photo Project: Photographers of the Ogunquit Art Association, both edited by Nancy R. Davison and designed by Tom Hibschman, are available at Barn Gallery.

Barn Gallery: Years of Excellence

Barn Gallery, built by Barn Gallery Associates (BGA) and the Ogunquit Art Association (OAA) in 1958-1959, provides an iconic exhibition space for OAA artists and a center for artistic activities. Together with the Ogunquit Museum of American Art and the Ogunquit Playhouse, it is a vital part of the lively cultural life of Ogunquit and the surrounding area. In 2003 BGA donated the building to the Ogunquit Arts Collaborative, a volunteer-run, not-for-profit corporation that owns and administers Barn Gallery.

The mission of the Ogunquit Arts Collaborative is to educate and enlighten the seacoast community by nurturing, supporting and presenting art by the OAA and other local fine artists. Artists and friends meet at the Barn to share exhibitions, programs about art and the creative process, and opportunities to create art.

The Ogunquit Art Association, founded in 1928 by Charles H. Woodbury and other area artists, brings together professional artists to exhibit their finest work. The OAA's original mission statement offers the public 'the opportunity for aesthetic experience and the acquisition of works of art.' It offers artists life-long memberships and the opportunity 'to display that which is, in his or her own judgment, his or her finest work, free from the usual vagaries of popular opinion and fashions of taste. This brings into view a true representation of art from the artists' point of view.'
