    It may rain in the Midcoast on Saturday, so here’s a fine way to spend your afternoon. Lincoln Street Center will be hosting an Open Studio. Go check out the former high school turned art center and feel free to wander into the studios of more than six artists to chat about their work and process from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
