    BELFAST — Local Color Gallery will host a 4th Friday Gallery Night on Friday, May 26, from 4-7 p.m.

    Karen Olson—a self-described lens-based artist and sculptural photographer—is the featured guest artist. “Sleeping in the Trees,” is meant “to evoke a sense of well-being and contentment,” says Olson, in a Local Color news releasse. “This work summons the feeling of just waking from a dream-like state.”

    Olson’s work, on display from May 22-June 25, is concept driven and explores subjects such as grief, trauma, empathy, and forest bathing. Fibers, papers, and photographs are formed and sculpted, adding weight and texture.

    “I seek an open dialog with the materials and the subject, encouraging collaboration and interchange,” Olson says.

    Olson’s work has been featured by the Griffin Museum of Photography, Maine Museum of Photographic Arts, Art New England Magazine, and One Twelve Publishing. She was chosen as an Rfotofolio selected artist for 2021 and was included in Maine Magazine’s “Shifting Sequences,” 18 Up-And-Coming Maine artists to watch.

    Local Color Gallery, 135 High St., is open seven days a week, Monday-Saturday, 11-5, Sunday, 11-4. For details, visit localcolorgallerymaine.org.
