Event has passed
BELFAST — Three printmakers from Local Color Gallery will demonstrate the art of printmaking on Saturday, May 6, from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m., in celebration of Print Day in May. Leslie Moore (linocut), MF Morison (linocut/copper plate etching) and Nell Parker (woodcut) will join printmakers from around the world on this first Saturday in May to make prints and share their experiences on social media.
The Local Color printmakers’ subject will be turtles. They will give away prints and ask for donations to the Turtle Rescue Program at Avian Haven in Freedom, Maine.
“We treated 75 turtles last summer, and they tend to stay with us for many weeks and require a lot of care,” said Leigh Hallett, Executive Director of Avian Haven, in a Color Gallery news release. “Each year the numbers go up, as more people realize that there is something they can do to help turtles that are injured in the road. The peak time for car strikes in this area is the first two weeks of June.”
Hallett will be at the gallery on Saturday from 12:30 - 2 p.m. She’ll offer brief comments about turtle rescues and answer questions.
Local Color Gallery, 135 High St., Belfast, is open from 11-5 Monday through Saturday and 11- 4 Sunday. Visit localcolorgallerymaine.org for details.
