Community Art Show: It's All About the Heron

Each year the Merrymeeting Arts Center hosts a show of art created by members of the greater Merrymeeting Bay community. The theme of each show centers around one of the sculptures in Bryce Muir’s Local Myths Collection. This year’s show is "The Heron".

Everyone is invited to submit a piece of art they have created. All artists - amateur, professional, 1st time artists - of any age or ability are encouraged to participate. Any medium - drawings, paintings, sculpture, photography, collage, fiber arts, mixed media, etc. - is acceptable. There is no fee to enter and all submissions will be displayed in the MAC gallery. The only requirement is that the piece be somehow related to The Heron, no matter how loosely interpreted!

Please submit only one piece of art/artist. The deadline to enter is Sept. 12th (the sooner the better!).The Community Art Show will open at the MAC Gallery during Celebrate Bowdoinham, Sept. 14, 2019 at 10am, and will remain on display through Oct. 19, 2019 during regular gallery hours (Saturdays between 10am -1pm).

Contact MAC at, or by phone at (207) 370-5002 for questions about the show, or to make arrangements to drop off your piece.
