Thank you for another great year!

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the 2018 Archipelago Artists & Makers Conference on Friday, April 6, 2018! We welcomed close to 200 artists and makers from across the state to Hedges Hall at Point Lookout in Northport for a full day of information, networking, and presentations tailored to the needs of Maine's arts-based businesses. The conference is open to all artists and makers who live and produce work in Maine. 

Special thanks to John and Tina Gillis and the Eaton Foundation for supporting this year's conference.
