BANGOR, Maine — Considering the popularity of the first Downtown Art Walk in March, organizers have started to plan for a second such event to be held Friday, June 19.

The deadline for applications for artisans to take part in the art walk is May 15.

Artisans with studios in downtown Bangor including painters, fabric artists, printmakers, photographers, jewelers, framers, musicians, furniture makers, sculptors, art therapists and writers are encouraged to submit applications. Also invited are downtown establishments that support the arts and businesses that present local or Maine artisans in their spaces.

The University of Maine Museum of Art, which was one of the participants in the March art walk, had more than 300 visitors that night. UMMA was one of the locations in which people could pick up maps of the participating locations.

Detailed submission guidelines are available at www.myspace.com/centralstreetstudios or by contacting Sally Gilbert at 852-3504. Applications may be picked up at the University of Maine Museum of Art, located at 40 Harlow St. Completed applications should be dropped off at 9 Central St., No. 312, or with Jodi Clayton at One Lupine Fiber Arts at 170 Park St.

There is a $20 cash application fee to cover the cost of printing maps, posters and advertising. The walk itself is free and open to the public.
