The call to artists has gone out for this summer’s Art in the Big Tent. As part of Friendship Day weekend, this "day after" event is now in its third year and will take place Sunday, July 28, from noon to 5 p.m. under, yes, a big tent at the Hahn Center.

This fine art sale was very successful last year; both artist participation and sales were terrific. Artists are asked to register to participate in this casual afternoon of sales and  interaction. Registration is $35, to benefit the Friendship Ambulance Fund.

There should be upwards of 20 Midcoast artists this year. For more information and registration, call Pam Cabanas at 832-6633 or send email to
