The annual Running With Scissors Art Studios 6×6 Show and Open Studios are happening in Portland, Maine during Maine Craft Weekend. Wander 16,000 square feet of private and communal work spaces while you explore the life and works of 80+ artists working with diverse mediums, artistic goals, backgrounds, ages, and experiences. This year will include a live woodblock t-shirt printing demonstration and a paint your own pottery event. Bring your t-shirts and your inspiration to our open studios located at 250 Anderson Street in Portland on Saturday, October 7, 2023 from 11am – 4pm.

Join us later that evening at Belleflower Brewing Co., located at 66 Cove Street, from 5 – 7pm for an informal meet and greet and to view the annual RWS 6×6 Show. Each piece is 6” x 6” and up to 6” deep, an accessible and unifying format that showcases members’ diverse styles and talents. The exhibit will be up through the end of November. RWS is a multimedia artist space and home to the Clay, Print, and Wood Departments. Our studios are a community where members share equipment, ideas, tools, and support. RWS’s goal is to help artists reach their independent creative ambitions by providing access to shared equipment, tools, information, and community. Open studios only happen twice a year. Support local artists and learn more about RWS at these family-friendly and free events!
