For Community Calendar, Book Notes, or Galleries & Exhibits as Appropriate.
An art exhibition titled “The MEIC's Spooky Art Show” organized by The Maine Illustrators Collective will be on display at Kennebooks, a new bookstore located in Kennebunk's Lower Village from 5pm October 2nd through Oct 31st. The Maine Illustrators' Collective (MEIC) is a 4 year old non-profit collective of professional illustrators and designers meeting in Portland once a month to brain storm, critique new work, give support, share ideas, and offer advice on promoting each other's work. They also organize events, talks and shows.
The Spooky Art Show will feature paintings and original art based on classic horror novels, scary short stories and poems, and even local folklore. All participating MEIC artists are published or printed illustrators with several of the participating book illustrators having award-winning books.
Kennebooks and The MEIC will be hosting an open “Halloween” costume reception with “scary food” on Friday, Oct 2nd from 5 p.m. to 7:00 pm; the public is invited to attend. Costumes are encouraged with prizes to be given to the scariest and the most creative! Pumpkin carving demonstrations will be held on the bookstore's outdoor patio weather permitting.
Come see this frightful display, meet the dreadfully creative talent, and partake of spooky food while being serenaded by haunting melodies.
Art and prints will be available for purchase through the individual artists.
