Summer is in full swing at Spindleworks. The pottery studio is alive with music, laughter, color and shapes. Results of this will be seen later in the summer, but this month we have work out and about on both sides of the bridge. Micah’s solo show hangs at the Little Dog this month while we have our annual summer selection up at the Topsham Library. If you missed our “Put a Bird on it” show, no worries, we are holding it over through July. Join us for the Second Friday ArtWalk, July 10th, 5-8pm.

We are excited to dedicate an entire exhibit on Micah’s work. As well as his striking family portraits “from my brain”, this body of work highlights Micah’s interest in the natural world, and his talent in translating it through brush and paint. For owl fans, this show is chock full of them, as well as other favorites of his including pandas who take on a comical character at his hand. Make sure to stop in to the Little Dog this month to have a cuppa, or a bite of, and to take in this fantastic show. hours: 6 am – 6 pm Monday through Saturday, Sunday 7 am – 6 pm.

It is becoming a July tradition! Showing at the Topsham Library feels like a lovely summer extension to our gallery on Lincoln Street, and one that has hours on the weekend! If getting to our Lincoln Street Studios is difficult during the work week, do stop by the library this month to see work by new and veteran Spindleworks artists. Much thanks to the library staff and volunteer Connie Bailey (and artist herself!) for hosting us each year.

Everything looks better with a bird on it! This fowl themed show from Spindleworks artists explores birds of all shapes and sizes including chickens, owls, and flamingos. The diverse species of birds lends well to the creative interpretations of the artists exhibited. It seems that every generic item on store shelves currently comes with a bland silhouette of a bird. This is an unfair representation of near 10,000 species on the planet; Spindleworks hopes that you will gain a better understanding of the uniqueness of color and life in each bird represented. In the true spirit of the title, Spindleworks invites the public to come and “Put A Bird On It” at our opening on June 12th. Dig out your ugliest shirt from the depths of the closet and bring it along and we will help make you the most fashionable person in town because you “Put A Bird On It”!
