This event provides an opportunity for the public and fellow statewide artists to purchase studio supplies, materials and equipment, as well as seconds (final products not quite right for full price retail or wholesale shows and stores) directly from Maine artists. We are now hosting this event every other year between Portland, and Ellsworth, Maine. See details from the Portland event in 2019.
An indoor/outdoor Maine Art and Craft Seconds & Supplies Sale will be held Saturday May 30, 2020 at Artsworth in Ellsworth, Maine, 9-3pm.
The sale is a co-production of Maine Crafts Association and Artsworth designed to support our members, have fun and help shift extra materials from people who don’t need them to people who do! Artsworth shares the grounds with Fogtown Brewery and Atlantic Art Glass, a public access glass blowing studio, be prepared to enjoy glass blowing demonstrations all day during the event and local beer at the afterparty.
For Artists: Vendor applications are open to MCA members January 31 – March 31. Open to non-members April 1, 2020.
For Artists & Attendees: Big ticket items will be previewed on the Facebook Event Page. Items will only be available on the day of the sale. Please attend the event to purchase these items.
Seconds & Supplies Sale vendors, volunteers and customers are invited to an afterparty at Fogtown Brewery 3-6pm. Join us to visit, connect and celebrate clean studios and new purchases. Fogtown is located directly downstairs from Atlantic Art Glass and the event. Their diverse tap list includes barrel-aged sours fermented with locally foraged berries, stouts brewed with organic Maine oats, refreshing lagers brewed with heritage Maine malts, and IPAs made with fresh, whole cone Maine-grown Cascade hops, and much more. (Attendance @ the sale not required to attend!).Grab convenient lunch or dinner from Eat At Joe’s food truck.
