OVERVIEW

An outdoor Maine Art and Craft Seconds & Supplies Sale will be held Saturday June 3, 2017 at Running with Scissors in Portland, Maine. The sale will provide an opportunity for the public and fellow artists to purchase studio supplies, materials and equipment, as well as seconds (final products not quite right for full price retail or wholesale shows and stores) directly from Maine artists. The sale is a co-production of Maine Crafts Association and Running with Scissors designed to support our members, have fun and help shift extra materials from people who don’t need them to people who do!

Partner Events on Anderson Street June 3rd!

The Maine Tool Library – Anderson Street

The Maine Tool Library is selling extras from its tool collection for dirt cheap! Some of these tools are typical hand tools or power tools: wrenches, screw drivers, chisels, knives, corded drills, circular saws, etc. Some of these “tools” are less expected: candle molds, glass cutters, paint rollers, even a folding bike. The Maine Tool Library is like a giant shared tool closet, and our aim is to make quality tools available to everyone.

Urban Farm Fermentary – Anderson Street
Is someone else’s trash your treasure? Do you bejewel with junk? Are you a visual artist with a focus on recycled or found objects? UFF is looking for a few artists to display their works in our Tasting Room for 6 weeks, beginning the last week of May. Pieces that can be hung on the wall are preferred, but there is very limited space for stand-alone sculptures. This will be in conjunction with Running with scissors art studios and Maine Crafts Association‘s Seconds and Supplies sale, celebrating recycled art supplies and tools.

E-mail ella@fermentory.com with a short statement about your work, and photos that give an example of your work.

 Arm Factory – Anderson Street
The Arm Factory screen printing and design studio is planning an event, TBA! www.thearmfactory.com
