Call to Artists!

On July 9th, 2016, Norway, Maine will once again close Main Street from 9AM- 4PM to showcase fine artists, artisans and performers. A block from Lake Pennesseewassee, artists have been exhibiting on Main Street every summer for over fifty years. This year promises to be better than ever with Norway Downtown and The Western Maine Art Group teaming up to put Maine’s creative spirit on the street. Don’t miss this opportunity to share in Norway’s resurgence as a thriving community for artists.

This is a juried festival for all registered exhibitors. Cash prizes will be offered for Best in Show and First and Second place work in painting, photography and fine craft. Purchase awards will also be offered by local businesses and individuals for the purchase of selected pieces. Awards totaled over $2,000.00 in 2015.

Registration and the juried exhibition will be in the newly renovated Matolcsy Arts Center. A generous 10’by 10’ space will be provided on Main Street to each artist. With your registration you will also receive complimentary coffee and snacks plus special artist discounts to local restaurants and businesses. There are special parking spaces for artists and volunteers will help direct, set-up and check throughout the day to make sure all your needs are met. Applications are available online at www.westermainartgroup.org.
