One of the many reasons I love living in downtown Brunswick, Maine is the vibrant arts community. It’s hard to walk anywhere in town without hitting an art gallery, theatre or a local business that displays the works of area artists.
Every now and then, the Five Rivers Arts Alliance will sponsor open studio events, allowing anyone to explore what our creative neighbors have to offer. I thought this weekend’s events were worth sharing.
Starting tonight, Arts Downtown & All Around will showcase regional art in Bath, Brunswick, Harpswell, Bowdoinham, Topsham, West Bath, Dresden, and Woolwich. This is a great way to meet local artists and craftspeople, experience their art and buy some really cool holiday gifts. Lots of events, including talks and several performances, will be happening December 3, December 4 and December 5.*
The coolest part, for me, is that I can walk to the Brunswick / Topsham events!
If you’re in the area, stop by and check it out. It’s worth the trip.
*According to the Five River Arts Alliance, all sites will be open Saturday Dec 4, 10am –5pm. Many are open additionally on Friday, Dec 3, 5-8pm, and Sunday Dec 5th from noon to 4pm. Performances are offered throughout the weekend.
