The Art Foundation’s current show portrays “July in Maine” from as many angles as there are artists. This members’ show, representing 100 regional artists, also marks a milestone for our foundation.
The foundation is celebrating its 56th year of continuous operation as a nonprofit whose mission is to create opportunities for people of all ages to enjoy, learn from and participate in the visual arts.
In addition to the regular members’ exhibit, BRAF is sponsoring two solo shows in the upstairs area. Gallery One features a collection called “Big, Bold & Beautiful” by local artist Nancy Dirubbo. Colorful Flowers are her subject; acrylics and oils are her mediums.
The upstairs Harbor View Room is occupied by photographer Ed Kenney, of Owls Head. Images from his newly-released book, “The Winter Coast of Maine,” are on view as well as several other unique vistas from the United States and beyond.
The upstairs July-Happening includes a Hallway Hallmark of paintings by BRAF board members and a members’ overflow of chosen works installed in the top-of-the-stairs Middle Room.
Located at 1 Townsend Ave., the Art Foundation is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
