Åarhus Gallery invites the public to an opening reception Friday March 2nd, 5-8pm for the kick-off of the fourth annual ’44N 69W: Radius Belfast’ Show. An all encompassing exhibition celebrating the local creative zest of Maine residents of any age or training living within a thirty mile radius of Belfast. The show runs from March 1st through April 1st and will be packed with potters, painters, welders and musicians, knitters, sculptors and mobile makers. Artworks celebrating and illuminating this vast creative community will be on view and for sale with a charitable percentage of sales and entry fees going to food banks within a thirty-mile radius of Belfast. Last year over one hundred and seventy-five pieces of art were exhibited to the delight of hundreds of visitors, friends and loved ones with consequent sales enabling a generous donation to the Good Shepherd Food Bank.
Åarhus Gallery, 50 Main St., Belfast, operating under winter hours, is open February-May, Thursday-Sunday 11am-5:30pm. For more information call 338-0001 or visit www.aarhusgallery.com
