Lunch with an Artist series

HALLOWELL The community has a lunch date with artists. The Harlow Gallery, SpinOff Studio and Spindleworks have teamed up to present Lunch with an Artist. Every fourth Wednesday, the public can bring lunch and chat with local artists.

'[Lunch with an Artist] developed out of a program we've been doing at Spindleworks, our big-sister program in Brunswickm' said Jonathan Price, team leader of SpinOff Studios. 'They kind of just started this event where they invited different artists in once in awile and would buy them lunch. They'd have a casual lunch and the artist would share their work and have a group discussion and you could learn about the artists and different mediums.'

They decided to kick off a similar program at SpinOff Studio in Hallowell, teaming up with the Harlow Art Gallery. The first lunch was with Scott Minzy in February and was so popular that there was standing room only. The March 28 lunch, which is being held at the larger Harlow Gallery features Hazel Mitchell, a children's book illustrator who resides in Maine. This goes hand-in-hand with the Harlow Gallery's Youth Art Month, with exhibits from students in grades K through 12.
