September Greetings from Executive Director Dinah Minot 

The post-Labor Day morning nip in the air catapults us into Fall. Scrub off the sand and polish your shoes. We’re back to school. On a positive note, we’ve got another three months of nature’s spectacular golden season. Portland has become a year-round destination attracting local patrons and tourists to visit and enjoy the diverse and exceptional talent of Maine makers, designers, writers, and artists of all genres.  On First Friday, check out the self-guided tour and map of all the amazing art exhibitions, comedy showcases, and concerts, capped that night by Portland’s pride and joy, the popular band, Rustic Overtones, at Port City. All month long, the city’s cultural community offers an eclectic variety of events, from Longfellow Park Arts Festival, MAMM’s annual open house, Eckhart Preu’s inaugural PSO concerts, and Global Climate Strike events, to Cinema, Cuisine & Confidences, Portland Harvest Festival, Maine Arts Awards, and more. Tell your artist friends and/or send in your submissions for our Fall exhibition, All the Great Trees, due on Sept 13th!
