SpindleWorks SpinOff

The Maine Arts Commission is proud to present an exhibition of work on loan from Spindleworks and SpinOff Studio. The work, created by Maine artists, will be on display throughout the summer.

Spindleworks, established in 1978, is a nonprofit art center for adults with disabilities and a program of Independence Association of Brunswick, whose mission is to help children and adults with disabilities achieve full and inclusive lives in their chosen community. Spindleworks is the creative home for over 40 artists who work in a variety of mediums, including painting and drawing, ceramics and sculpture, weaving and other textile arts. In addition, some artists write poetry and stories, and express themselves through performance. Their work has been exhibited widely, and they are well known and respected members of Maine’s artistic community. SpinOff Studio, located in Gardiner is a new branch of the program. Established in 2011, SpinOff is home to fifteen artists who have become part of the art scene in the Kennebec Valley Region.

Artists attending each program receive supplies, studio space, and guidance as needed. Their work is exhibited in the Whatnot Gallery and Store at Spindleworks and SpinOff, as well as in shows both locally and nationally. The artists receive 75 percent of the sale price of their work, with 25 percent returning to the program to purchase supplies.

The Spindleworks gallery and store are open Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The artists are on site Monday-Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and Friday until 1:00 p.m. They enjoy visitors and love to give tours and talk about their work. For more information, please visit: www.spindleworks.org. SpinOff Studio is open Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and artists are on site 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day.
