ArtVan Presents: Pásala Bacano

Welcome to ArtVan‘s second exhibit featuring 100 artists of all ages and art styles. In collaboration with MAIZ Colombian Street Food in Brunswick, this year’s theme is Pásala Bacano. A saying MAIZ highlights in neon lights behind their bar translates to Have a good time! Good vibes!   The exhibit will be held in the MAIZ foyer on Pleasant Street.  Each original work of art explores an individual’s expression incorporating joyful memories or local and multicultural connection.
In addition to an opening reception and closing night, activities sprinkled throughout the three-week exhibit invite creative movement and good times. For the latest announcements and sneak previews, visit:

ArtBar 06/08/23 at 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


ArtBar is ArtVan’s take on “Paint & Sip” workshops. At ArtBar we focus on the process of creating art rather than the final product. Each participant works on an original inspiration so at the end of the night, each artwork is unique. For a modest fee, participants are invited to paint with the guidance of ArtVan’s professional staff, similar to how we invite our program groups to express themselves. Although this is not a therapy group, it is an experience of creativity. We provide a canvas, paints, brushes, drawing materials, and any artistic support needed.

Taking place at OneSixtyFive. Cash bar available. No outside food or drinks permitted.

Registration is required, and may be done here.
