Brick Store Museum
The Brick Store Museum was founded by American artist Edith Cleaves Barry in 1936. Part of its nonprofit mission is to celebrate local arts and artists, in addition to local history and culture. This year, the Museum announces a brand-new program that invites the public to celebrate and explore various forms of art. The program, simply called “Art Night!,” is free and takes place on the second Friday of every month from 5pm – 8pm, June through September.
July’s Art Night! is a part of the Museum’s Kennebunk Heritage & Culture Festival, which runs July 11-14 with events each day. On Friday, July 12th, Art Night! will include:
- Exploration of “The Art of Cute” exhibition, presented by Portland’s Illustration Institute;
- The opening of the new Bauman Family Gallery contemporary art exhibit, “Painting the Light in Maine” by Kenneth Fellows, a Kittery-based watercolor artist;
- A free art workshop (for all ages!) called “Collaborative Comics!,” crafted by The All Hands Collective: Making comics together is a great exercise for anybody interested in narrative-based visual art and a fun opportunity to show that comics can represent much more than just super heroes!
Art Nights! are made possible through the Museum’s Business Partners: Kennebunk Savings Bank, The Captain Lord Mansion, Clark Insurance, The Captain Jefferds Inn, Huntington Common, Hussey Seating, Home & Away Gallery, Waldo Emerson Inn, Cherie’s, The B&B Team, 1802 House Bed & Breakfast Inn, Garret Pillsbury, MaineStay Inn & Cottages, Atria Senior Living, Nonantum Resort, Huston & Co., Boulangerie A Proper Bakery, Tourist & Town, Weirs Buick GMC, Andrews Milligan, and Raylene Sousa.
