First Friday Artwalks are taking place across Maine. In Ellsworth, artist Artist Wendilee Heath O’Brien will be gold leafing in the SevenArts Gallery during the Ellsworth ArtWalk. Bar Harbor’s Artwalk features an opening reception at the new Artemis Gallery and “Circo D’Alessio” opens on Mt. Desert St. In Belfast, Northern Lights Gallery and Galerie Dufour have Friday openings. In Stonington, Isalos is the happening place. Rockland has a great art walk with lots of cool restaurants and openings at Dowling Walsh, the Landing, Carver Hill, CRAFT and Jonathan Frost. The Boothbay Region includes Ocean Point Studio in East Boothbay, and of course, Portland, where Maine ArtWalks originated, is a lively scene, especially at the Gleason Gallery. ArtWalks are great opportunity to see friends and new art, and if lucky, to meet the artists. For information visit artwalkmaine.org.
