  • Adria Moynihan-Rusk Studio
    Since radical limitations have never appealed to me, I became an artist before I even knew what an artist was. I colored outside of the lines on purpose and I continue to do so as an adult. I have a studio outside of my home where I spend as much time as possible developing my craft. I have a BA in fine art with a focus in painting and I have studied art extensively across the U.S., Mexico and Spain. I teach private lessons to teens and adults where I strive to be an ally in the process of discovering one’s own creative path. I live and work in Portland, Maine.

  • Maine Sailing Adventures
    In the 1800s, windjammers and their mighty sails were a frequent sight up and down Maine's coast, where they would pull fish from the water and fill New England's insatiable need for goldfish crackers. By the 21st century, most had abandoned windjammers for engine-powered vessels—but not Hasket Derby Hildreth. A boat builder and mechanical engineer, Hildreth had a vision to re-create the windjammer's classic design on modern shores. Working with a friend who was a boat restorer, Hildreth and his team fashioned their own steel tools and built one of Portland's only engineless windjammers, which they affectionately christened Frances.   Maine Sailing Adventures launched Frances in the fall of 2003. Though Hildreth has since passed away, his memory lives on through the legacy Frances continues to perpetuate with each voyage. Today, she can be found at Maine State Pier, where passengers board her shallow deck and sail out to enjoy Maine's scenic coasts without the noise or emissions typical of engine-powered boats. These trips stretch beyond standard tours, though. As they sail, the crew spins tails of Portland's maritime history, teaches passengers how to hoist the topsail, and transforms the boat into a floating classroom, where students can learn about lobster migration and how many wishes they can get from a starfish.

  • Paint Nite Portland
    Fluffy clouds stripe the canvas, mirroring the burnt-orange tones of a fading sunset. On the earth below, a river bisects a green valley. This image?rendered by professional artist Callie Hastings?serves at the guiding template for a painting party at Bull Feeney's, an authentic irish pub. It represents just one of several paintings that novice and experienced artists re-create during events hosted by Paint Nite Portland. Although a professional painting like Callie's sets the standard for each painting party, there's no pressure to create a polished replication. In fact, Paint Nite Portland emphasizes fun over finesse?participants are encouraged to follow along as the professional dictates each step of the process, but they're ultimately free to paint whatever they want. They can also purchase drinks at their leisure to fuel creativity. Throughout the year, Paint Nite Portland partners with a handful of local venues and artists that each foster a unique vibe. Regardless of the event at hand, Paint Nite Portland supplies all the essential materials, including brushes, paints, canvases, easels, and aprons.

  • Maine Bikram Yoga
    Bikram yoga isn't meant to be easy, but it isn't meant to be impossible either. The 105-degree heat, 40% humidity, and 26 challenging asanas—which incorporate deep bends as well as long, sustained stretches—all share a common goal: helping students safely push their physical limits while gaining a greater understanding of the connection between mind and body. During each 90-minute class, the asanas' twists and arches create a tourniquet effect, systematically engaging muscle groups throughout the body before releasing the stretch and flooding cells with oxygenated blood flow. The practice room's intense heat accentuates this effect by loosening muscles and ligaments throughout each pose and increasing circulation. To help students tailor the practice to a particular skill or fitness level, the instructors can recommend modified stances that put less strain on the joints and require fewer hoverboots. Over time, the sequence can improve flexibility and stamina while also increasing muscle tone and helping with weight-loss efforts. In addition, its two breathing exercises encourage a sense of introspective calm that can leave students feeling reinvigorated outside of class.
