Escape the heat wave on the Maine Coast by visiting Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts, in Newcastle, for its annual Salad Days fund-raising event. This Saturday, July 10, make a $30 donation to Watershed, and in return you’ll an handmade, earthenware plate that you get to keep and the opportunity to fill it from a buffet of salads made from local produce and created by artists and area restaurants. How cool is that?
Wait, it gets even better. Not only do you get to picnic and keep the plate, you get to listen to live music, visit artists’ studios, and shop an invitational pottery sale featuring works by more than a dozen artists. Watershed’s Salad Days event begins at 3 p.m.
