artsipelago studio tour
Artsipelago is the distinctive arts and culture of a group of islands, peninsulas and adjacent areas located on the international Maine/New Brunswick coastal border region including Passamaquoddy and Cobscook Bays and the St. Croix River—a region historically known as the Passamaquoddy region. The Artsipelago initiative is an ongoing year-round guide and passport for locally distinctive arts and culture in the region.
The Two Countries, One Bay – Artsipelago Studio Tour, is a celebration of the area culture featuring a range of artist studios (fine arts, crafts and traditional arts), galleries and shops, local farms and foods, farmer’s markets, festivals, music (classical to kitchen music jams), theater and film, cultural institutions and sites, lighthouses, parks and more. The free, self-guided tour between Eastern Maine and New Brunswick Canada provides a unique opportunity to watch traditional and fine arts demonstrations, view the artists at work in their studios, and inquire about the artist’s creative experience. Make sure to bring your passport to enjoy all of the offerings.
Artsipelago Studio Tour takes place between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.
