First Friday Art Walk: Count Me In – Work from the artists of Publication Studio and The Art Department

Friday, May 04 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm
Location: Main Library
Audience: Adults

From vibrant landscapes and playful illustrations to inventive sculptural works, Count Me In offers the public a closer look at the art being made by the creative and talented group of people affiliated with The Art Department and Publication Studio in Portland, Me. The Art Department and Publication Studio, neighboring studios on Congress Street, support over 40 individual artists. The Art Department has been a part of the Portland Landscape since 2011 with a mission to support artists with intellectual uniqueness in the pursuit of their individual artistic craft. Focusing in disciplines of print media, Publication Studio has emerged as a separate program to compliment The Art Department and offer further opportunity for artistic exploration.
