Our annual Summer Block Party is an event where members of the community are issued plain old 5 x 7 wood blocks, are given four months to do something creative with them, and bring them back to The Framemakers for a grand summer display.
We love child art!
These blocks are decorated with real origami, sand, and seashells.
Pick up blocks NOW! Deadline June 30. Show runs July 16 through September 13, 2018, with a reception on August 10, 5:30 to 7:30 pm at The Framemakers, 46 Main Street, Waterville Maine
Sticks, rocks, shells, and metalworking adorn these stained blocks.
Dried flower pots on little shelves.
Children's book illustrations
5 x 7 blocks are available at the Framemakers for $1 each (cash or check only). Limit two blocks per person.
Fairy houses on painted backdrops!
Be creative! Draw on your blocks, carve them, make a diorama, paste photography on them, wrap them in string, whatever your creative mind thinks of! Return your finished blocks to the Framemakers by June 30th, and we'll put them in our gallery.
Adhere your artworking tools to your artwork!
Shiny metallic glitter paint.
Mischievous kitten dioramas.
This show is open to people of all techniques and skills. Not an artist? This is a good way to start! We encourage participation from the entire community, kids and adults.
Two blocks used to build a snowy cabin diorama, and a porcelain pop-up spring scene.
Each artwork will be priced at $45. $30 goes to the artist, and $15 goes toward the Waterville Area Art Society's scholarship and program funds.
So don't be "board" this summer. Be creative and have fun with us!
