The Merrymeeting Arts Center (MAC) invites you to join us in our first annual Spring Equinauxion on March 30, 2019. As someone who is passionate about, participates in and/or supports the arts in the Mid-Coast area, we invite you to become a part of this exciting event. In 2018 MAC celebrated our 10th anniversary, and the acquisition of Bryce Muir’s “Local Myths” wood sculpture collection, with a gala fundraiser/auction. The success of this event exceeded our wildest expectations, and leads us to launch Equinauxion 2019. Our goal is to develop this Spring auction into an annual signature fundraiser for MAC supporting exhibits, classes, workshops and community events as well as to support Maine’s emerging and established artists. How will we accomplish this? If you are an artist, we ask you to consider donating one of your pieces to Equinauxion 2019. If you are not an artist, perhaps you have artwork that you would like to donate to our auction.
Equinauxion 2019 will raise funds to support our exhibits, community programs, and classes, as well as ongoing operating expenses;
- for artists: contributing artists will receive 50% of the sale price of their works, as well as being included in our publicity and press releases;
- for art lovers: an opportunity to take home wonderful art while supporting artists and MAC.
The event will be March 30, 2019 at the Merrymeeting Arts Center at 9 Main Street in Bowdoinham.
