Rockland, ME, June 29, 2018 — The Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA) invites artists of all ages to take inspiration from artist John Bisbee’s installation featured in CMCA’s current exhibition “John Bisbee: American Steel“, during ArtLab for All Ages on Saturday, July 7, from 2 to 4pm.

Roll up those sleeves and delve into the joy and challenges of transforming small, simple hardware fasteners into hanging shapes and small sculptures. Artlabbers will take inspiration from John Bisbee’s work, constructed entirely of nails, to explore the possibilities that come from play and repetition. Bring your friends, family, or come on your own to CMCA at 21 Winter Street, Rockland. ArtLab welcomes children, teens, adults, and families, and is free of charge and open to all.

ArtLab for All Ages occurs on the first Saturday of every month. ArtLab is supported in part by the Milton and Sally Avery Art Foundation, Davis Family Foundation, Reny Foundation, Margaret E. Burnham Trust, and individual donors.
