Annual Midcoast Maine Arts & Artisans Tour set

A group of Midcoast artists and artisans will welcome visitors to their workplaces during a weekend-long tour Friday through Sunday. The studios — located in Camden, Rockport, Lincolnville, Hope, Appleton and Warren — will be open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. all three days.

The Midcoast Maine Arts & Artisans Tour offers a chance to see studios that are not normally open to the public, shop for art, and meet its creators. It also provides an opportunity for visitors to discuss any custom pieces they might have in mind. Tour-goers are encouraged to enjoy a lunch offered from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day as a fundraiser for Partners for Enrichment.

Work by the participating artists and artisans includes fine art, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics, and pieces created in wood, metal, glass, and mixed media.
