RWS Annual 6×6 Exhibit and Open Studios
September 30, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - October 2, 2022 @ 4:00 pm
The Running With Scissors Art Studios (RWS) annual 6×6 exhibit and open studios are happening in Portland, Maine during Maine Craft Weekend (MCW)!
Kick off your celebration of craft on Friday night from 5-8pm for an informal artist meet and greet and exhibit at Belleflower Brewing Co. (66 Cove Street). On Saturday and Sunday Explore the life and works of 80+ artists working with diverse mediums, artistic goals, backgrounds, ages, and experiences and wander over 16,000 square feet of private and open-air studios and communal work spaces in the clay, print, wood, and paint studios at 250 Anderson Street from 10am – 5pm on Saturday and noon – 4pm on Sunday. Support local artists and learn more about RWS at these family-friendly and free events! All visitors are asked to please wear a mask.
RWS’s goal is to help artists reach their independent creative ambitions by providing access to shared equipment, tools, information, and community. The 6×6 exhibit is a way to share members’ diverse styles and talents in an accessible and unifying format (where each piece is 6″ x 6″ and up to 6″ deep). The exhibit will be up through the end of November. RWS open studios happen only twice a year, during MCW and the RWS Holiday Market.
These events are a part of MCW, a statewide tour of Maine craft studios, businesses, and events. Running With Scissors is a proud 2022 Event Sponsor of MCW, which is produced by Maine Crafts Association, an organizational resident member at RWS.
