“In House”, a new exhibit of work by Waterfall Arts staff, studio artists, instructors, students, tenants and volunteers opens on Friday, January 27th with a reception from 5 to 7 pm. Showing work by some of the denizens of Waterfall Arts has become a tradition this time of year and the variety and quality of submitted artwork promises to be impressive.

During the opening, the musical group Tremolino will play Fado music, a fiery, soulful folk song style from Portugal characterized by passionate lyrics and mournful tunes. Tremolino’s musicians are Leslie Stein, Chris Marshall and Doug Ronco. Fado is said to be the oldest urban folk music in the Western world, representing the voice of the Portuguese soul, yet unfamiliar to most people in Maine.

Everyone is welcome to attend the opening, enjoy the art and refreshments and listen to the music. Waterfall Arts is located at 256 High Street in Belfast and is supported by All Creatures Acupuncture, Cold Mountain Builders, Michelle Morrow DMD, Revision Energy and the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.
