Kennebunkport Wears Art on its Sleeves May 30-June 1 for 3rd Annual Arts in the Inns Festival

( KENNEBUNKPORT, ME, – The quality of light along Maine’s venerated seacoast is second to none when it comes to artistic inspiration. And where artists linger, so flock their admirers.

This is particularly true in Kennebunkport, ME, May 30 to June 3 when the 3rd annual Arts in the Inns Festival combines the visual, culinary and hospitality talents of a seacoast community long used to taking center stage bows when it comes to iconic American destinations.

“You could say we’ll all be wearing our art on our sleeves this weekend,” says Rob Blood, a Festival spokesman and innkeeper.

He says that over 13 inns, three chefs (who have all presented at the James Beard House) and more than 20 artists will throw their hats into the weekend focused on sating palates and aesthetics.

Events begin Thursday, May 31, with art-inspired menus stimulating conversation amongst guests, artists and chefs in centuries-old homes. In addition to receptions, gallery walks and art-themed activities, an Artists in Residence program brings original works and the artists to participating inns so that guests can query and mingle at will.

The piece de resistance will be a Twilight Soiree on Friday, June 1, held five feet from the ocean in the newly restored St. Anne’s Rectory. This will be the first time the local community will see the restored interior of what was known as the Atwater Kent Cottage, a regional landmark. The excitement of this evening will be enhanced by the culinary team of the 5-star White Barn Inn, led by Executive Chef Jonathan Cartwright. Art drawn from land, sea and sky will inspire their presentation.
