Who wants to support local Portland artists? Joe sure does, which is why he's excited that the Maine College of Art (MECA) will again be holding its annual "Collect" fall art sale in support of MECA's scholarship fund and participating artists. Collect will be held this Thursday, October 8th, through Saturday, October 10th. This fundraiser features a unique, diverse and unexpected array of work in a variety of genres with a range of prices, sizes and media, including original jewelry, textiles, prints, furniture, paintings, sculpture, ceramics, drawings, photography, textiles and more. Artwork will be rotated daily with fresh work on display each day. Find out more about the event here. Admission to the sale is free, so be sure to stop in and find the perfect gift, crafts, and fine arts by MECA students, alumni, faculty and staff. Who knows, you might even run into Joe!
