For years Eastport Gallery has celebrated the charm of Eastport through Paint Eastport Day. In the past, artists have created traditional works and they have been available for sale through an auction.
This year we are celebrating Paint Eastport Day with a twist. We are hoping that the whole community will get involved to Paint ON Eastport.
Eastport Gallery will create an extra-large canvas with a map of Eastport on it. Kids, families and art aficionados will be invited to add their bit of flair throughout the day. Together we will create a community mural that depicts the spirit and artfulness of Eastport. Paint and brushes will be supplied by the Gallery. The project is being led by Alison Brynn Ross, Eastport Gallery member, muralist and painter of the Eastport Buoy.
To participate, just show up! We’ll be located in a tent near the amphitheater all day long on September 2. Just bring your imagination!
After its completion the mural will be displayed in various locations throughout the city.
Eastport Gallery is located at 109 Water Street and is open daily from 11 am to 5 pm in August, and 11 am to 5 pm Thursday through Monday in September. To learn about more upcoming events, visit eastportgallery.com.
