ROCKLAND – CMCA, 21 Winter St., opens its doors for a full day of holiday festivities Saturday, Dec. 11, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event features free admission, special one-day-only discounts in the gift shop, a free art making workshop, treats and more!

CMCA’s Holiday Pop-Up is a celebration of art and community during the winter season. Guests of all ages are invited to drop in and explore art in all four galleries and to get creative in the ArtLab, where materials are provided to make festive, hand-made holiday cards and wrapping paper.

For one day only, CMCA’s shop offers great discounts on purchases with 25% off for members and 15% off for non-members; gift bags are complimentary.

This event promises to be a fun mix of holiday market, art appreciation and art making. Author Kathleen Hackett will also be on hand to sign her richly photographed book, “The Maine House: Summer and After,” for sale in the CMCA Gift Shop. As they exit, visitors will be offered hot cider and donuts, which they can enjoy in front of the fire pit in CMCA’s courtyard.

Stay tuned to for a detailed schedule of events for the day.
