"Scherenschnitte"

Hey folks!  Did you catch the Scripps National Spelling Bee 2015?  If you did, you may have noticed that, "Scherenschnitte", was one of the final words spelled that led to a tie between two amazing contestants.  "Scherenschnitte", is a German word meaning, "scissor cuts", and is a delicate and beautiful art form.  It is not, however, a delicate word to spell...its a tough one...but she did it!  Check out the video.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDLz8QSLylo

Speaking of, "Scherenschnitte", which I am sure you all were, did you know that we have a renown Scherenschnitte artist in our midst here in downtown Kennebunk Maine?  Claudia Hopf is a tremendous artist and one of our members of the Third Friday ArtWalk Kennebunk.  She will have her private studio open for our ArtWalk nights where you can meet her and learn more about her beautiful designs.

What is "Art" on the ArtWalk?

It's the fourth year of downtown's Third Friday ArtWalk in Kennebunk. As we come together to plan these events, we start to ask ourselves this question: what can be included as art? Our art galleries, studios, and local museum display wonderful works of unique art that you are invited to view (and purchase!) during an evening celebration of the arts. But what what about performance art? How about musical art? As our Art Walk coordinators plan on how to make these ArtWalks a rich cultural experience, we look to you for suggestions on what you'd like to see on the ArtWalks in the future! After all, the rich arts heritage of the Kennebunks comes from our community members. We thank you!

Get in touch with us! Email your suggestions to artwalkkennebunk@gmail.com!
