Bangor Artists “Paint the Town”
Artists created quite the backdrop in Bangor Saturday. The Bangor Art Society held it’s seventh annual Paint Bangor Day.Artists of all ages and skill levels had the opportunity to paint a scene of Bangor’s downtown area knowing that their masterpiece would later be auctioned off for a good cause.This years Bangor Paint Day is raising funds for the library’s roof.”It’s really exciting because you have the professional artists alongside teenagers from the high school, and even younger, all painting together and just having a beautiful day in the sun and raising money for a very good cause,” said Ulrike Guthrie, President of the Bangor Art Society. Paintings were auctioned off earlier tonight. Artists get a portion of the profit, and the rest of the money goes to the library and the art society.
