Despite a harrowing week in Berwick, Maine
the artists show strength at BAA Red Saturday
It was quite chilly inside the Berwick Town Hall on November 29th but there was a friendly smile on every single artist, crafter, author and attendee as they greeted guests bundled in blankets and wooly hats... and after a Thanksgiving week full of storms, home fires, car accidents and lack of electricity, the Berwick Art Association still managed to pull off a wonderful buy local event to keep the town of Berwick alive, cheerful and community focused.
People were gathering in the big beams of sun pouring in through the town hall windows, they were sipping hot tea from TeaTotallers, wrapping in blankets and telling stories of how difficult a week it had been for the town. Best of all, they were sharing their original work, books, hand crafts and art with a smile. The chilly room was instantly warmed up with talent, love and good vibes from this group and it became a wonderful shopping experience that you wouldn't trade for any black friday at a big box!
If you missed Sam Paolini yesterday, you can catch her today at the Kittery Craft Crawl or follow Wrong Brain on Facebook - ps…even if you think Sam's original cloths are odd, I can guarantee you that your kids will LOVE it and that her style is addicting and trend setting!
Artist Jean Coughlin from Blackbird Studio & Gallery shared and sold her original paintings and cards and talked about art and the importance of buying local, she is giving our community another opportunity to buy local and give a meaningful gift from an artist at "Spirit of the Season" open house Saturday and Sunday, December 6 & 7, and December 13 & 14. From 11 to 5 you can stop by the studio of 15 artists on Route 9 in North Berwick, Maine (across from the Noble Highschool entrance)
