Western Maine Art Group strives to provide opportunities for artists and artisans, to provide broad community access to original art and to partner with others to create a prosperous cultural environment in Western Maine.
The Western Maine Art Group and Norway Downtown collaborate to stage the Norway Arts Festival. The festival brings many arts and talents to the community second Saturday in July.
For the last four years the streets closed to traffic giving way to a mall festival. In this carefree atmosphere visitors have fun and celebrate the arts.
Thank-you to Bessey’s Motors, Suzanne Grover, Edward Jones, Creaser’s Jewelers, and Ripley Fletcher Ford for your kind and generous support to the festival by donating the prizes.
Thank-you to Hannaford, Dunkin Donuts, and Jennicakes for the water, coffee and muffins. We could not have started our day with out you!
