Reporting a Successful Fellowship Awards Event

The Maine Arts Commission’s Fellowship Awards Event was a huge success on Friday. The audience of around 200 witnessed live music, movies, and demonstrations from our 2010 grant recipients. Among the audience was Bob Keyes from the Portland Press Herald, who wrote about the event during the show.

One of the artists that the audience got to meet at this year’s event was David Wolfe. David is this year’s Traditional Arts Fellow and a letterpress printer. We could not bring his machines on stage; not to be deterred we brought a movie of him working to the big screen at the Strand Theatre.
For your enjoyment, the movie is below in two parts. We will be putting together highlights of the event that will feature soon on the blog.
