'Bridge Messy, Emerge Ignited'

This year's 10x10 exhibit brings together 100 artists of all ages, each sharing original works inspired by a theme within the exhibit’s title. All art is for sale and supports both artist & ArtVan’s mission to bring therapeutic arts directly to neighbors since 2004.

Thank You to Our Funders!


We cycle through a variety of art mediums that we source in various ways. From bulk online orders to local donations. Thanks to Artist & Shop Owner, Leslie Beattie, the The Mix on Maine in Brunswick is a drop-off location! Due to limited storage, please connect us before dropping off donations. If we can’t use it immediately, it takes us time to pay it forward. 

Thanks to Mockingbird Bookshop at you can shop ArtVan journals year-round. Each journal is uniquely different, and all proceeds support ArtVan programs. 

We’re currently looking for volunteers to source, fold, & bind journals. All supplies will be provided. 

“Among the distribution is $7,500 for ArtVan’s Art Therapy of Sagadahoc Androscoggin, Cumberland and York counties … We’re honored to make bold investments in innovative programs that will help address the disproportionate burden of care work, as well as unprecedented increases in violence, substance use, unemployment and financial insecurity,” said Kimberly Crichton, executive director of the Maine Women’s Fund, in a news release.”​

If ordering from Amazon is more convenient, please consider using Amazon Smile and selecting ArtVan as your nonprofit of choice!


Head to Don’s Redemption Center on 786 Middle St. and tell them you’d like to donate your deposit to ArtVan.  If you use CLYNK, click on the donations tab in your online account and search for ArtVan.

Recycling, re-purposing, and keeping supplies affordable not only reduces what goes to the landfill, but also inspires a sense of wholeness, creativity, and opportunity to tap into our imaginations!
