Local artist Alexandra Hood works on an acrylic painting as part of a live art demo at Auburn’s Festival Plaza during Art Walk Lewiston Auburn.

Local artists and the public alike are in for a cider-sweet finish to Art Walk LA’s regular Friday events this September 30. The event will feature dozens of new and returning local artists’ work, lively music and other entertainment, and plenty of opportunities to connect with friends. Make it to both sides of the Androscoggin for the complete experience.

Don’t fret: September 30’s event isn’t the end of the season. A special 2016 bonus Thursday Art Crawl on Thursday, October 6 will follow. The Art Crawl will coincide with the Maine International Conference on the Arts taking place in Lewiston Auburn and include the Maine Craft Association’s 2016 Craft Apprenticeship Program gallery showing from 4:00-7:00 at LA Arts and a special art walk through Lewiston from 7:00-8:00.
