Youtube video about Artdogs Studios and the Community Covid Quilt Mural. Thanks to Serena and Nathan for making the video sponsored by Waterville Creates! and Common Street Arts.

The Artdogs Studios is an arts collective in the heart of Historic Downtown Gardiner Maine. Five artist studios and one artist residency occupy the upper floors of the facility. The building storefront supports Circling the Square Fine Art Press and Gallery


Established in 2004, Artdogs Studios is organized on the belief that the arts are vital to the cultural and economic health of a community.  Artists maintain ongoing studio practices, network with other artists, and colaborate with community members. The Artdogs sponsor lectures, discussion groups, and project-focused meetings. Artdogs is also a provider of workshops, classes, and a rental facility for community gatherings.
