Portland’s First Friday Art Walks offer an always convivial, sometimes bizarre, atmosphere. That is an especially heartening fact for those willing to brave the elements for February’s Art Walk on the 7th. Even though the temperatures are frigid and snow is imminent, you can warm your soul with great local art and plenty of local color.

But at Goodwill Industries of Northern New England’s annual Art for Everyone: A Collection of Donated Art event, the art for sale will be budget-friendly and, dare we say it, affordably priced. Folks who’ve long appreciated the works hanging on gallery walls can hopefully find a piece they love to take home (legally and without breaking the bank). The sale features over 200 pieces of artwork donated to Goodwill stores, including oils, watercolors, drawings, mixed media, and prints.

Harry Potter, cornhole & wine sail: 6 things to do in Maine this weekend

Harry Potter, cornhole & wine sail: 6 things to do in Maine this weekend
October 08, 2013

There’s no denying it: Fall’s been pretty darn good to us so far. And this weekend’s looking to be another beauty. Take advantage of the fact that there isn’t eight inches of snow on the ground and/or sleet pouring from the heavens (because, mark my words, there will be in the not-too-distant future) and hit the First Friday Art Walk. If you’re willing to turn off your cellphone for a few minutes, you can even have a free conversation in Monument Square with a member of Guerrilla Downtown. The Italian Heritage Center goes country with corn hole, Jello shots, line dancing, and a mechanical bull, and apples are celebrated at Gilsland Farm. And if the combination of wine, sailboats, and sunset sounds appealing (it should, because it’s perhaps the most appealing trifecta known to humankind) then you’ll probably very much enjoy the Wine Wise foliage and sunset sail.

Maybe it’s not that outragous after all. But all that texting, emailing, and messaging we do means we’re doing a lot more typing and a lot less talking. In an effort to remedy the situation – at least for a few minutes – Guerilla Downtown is offering free conversations in Monument Square during the October 4 First Friday Art Walk.

So it might rain a bit this weekend. But it’s nothing an umbrella and/or a little spring fortitude can’t handle. It’s Old Port Fest weekend after all, and while it rains that Sunday almost every year, that’s never stopped the live music or the wonderful glutton of street food.

If you not planning to participate in the April First Friday Art Walk you must have something else really, really (REALLY) important to do. Not only with this be the first Art Walk in a long time to happen in nearly-full daylight (5 to 8 p.m.), it’s also one that has any number of really cool and different exhibits to see. Here are the shows we suggest you see:
