The Annual Festival of Art, co-sponsored by Senior College and the UMaine Hutchinson Center, will celebrate its 10th anniversary May 10 thru May 13, 2012. This event is planned and organized each year completely by volunteers and is offered free of cost to participants. It provides an opportunity for Maine artists, 50 years of age and older, to show one piece of their work over a three day period. This is a nonjuried event, open to amateurs and professionals. Last year we had 170 pieces of artwork and over 1,400 visitors. The Festival is free and open to the public and features a special section for art from the students in RSU20 K-12. It is truly amazing to see the talent in these very young students. This year’s event coincides with Mother’s Day, so treat Mom to brunch then bring her by to see some of the finest artwork in the area by well known artists, as well as some showing their work for the first time. The schedule for the event:
Thursday, May 10 – 6-8 p.m.
Friday, May 11 – 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Saturday, May 12 – 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Sunday, May 13 – 12 noon to 3 p.m.
