Charlotte Hobbs Library Art and Artisans Fair

95 Main Street Lovell, Maine

9 am – 3 pm

This lively local show raises funds for the library in Lovell, Maine.  It draws a range of craftspeople from Maine and New Hampshire, and is a much loved event.  The first time I did this show, I saw a mother bear and two cubs cross the road right before I got to the school!

Bradbury Mountain Arts Holiday Show

Mallett Hall

429 Hallowell Road (Route 9)

Pownal, Maine

Last year a lightening storm took out the hall’s elevator, so we were all crowded together on the first floor of Mallet Hall. The group of wonderful artisans made it work, but we will be back to having the whole building this year. Bradbury Mountain Arts organizes this show, and it features both 2D and 3D work. It’s a lovely event.
