    Over the weekend of Aug. 25-27, art lovers will be bound for Hodgdon Yacht Services for Lincoln Arts Festival’s Art For Art’s Sake Show & Sale. This much anticipated event has been a favorite every summer since 1995! Each year, local and regional artists, weavers, sculptors, authors, jewelers and artisans bring their latest works to this show that attracts hundreds of art lovers on the lookout for a new find – or two.

    Friday, Aug. 25, the show and sale opens at 10 a.m. with the opening reception (open to the public) kicking off from 5 p.m. until 7. Most of the artists and artisans will be there and so will harpist Suki Flanagan, adding a mystical air to the festivities.

    By far the most popular day is Saturday, this year Aug. 26, a.k.a. Arts Interaction Day Demos & Hands-on Art Tutorials from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Your last chance to get to the show and buy some new art is Sunday, Aug. 27 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.  Said Event Coordinator Leslie Muir-Volpe of the reception, “The transformation from boat shed to art gallery is amazing to witness.
