Wesserunsett Arts Council presents their Third Annual Rural Open Studios Tour from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept 29 throughout the Skowhegan area. Seventeen studios are open from Wellington to Canaan to Mercer. Central Maine has a thriving and unique arts community that is not always in plain sight. Open Studios celebrates this community and brings it into sharp focus. This one-day event encourages people to meet and visit with local artists and experience the connection each artist has with her or his rural Maine setting. Art on display ranges from watercolors, oils and pastels to birch-bark canoes, pottery, and sculpture. Refreshments will be offered at all studios. For more information, visit www.wesarts.org.
