From May 15 through June 19, the exhibit featuring artist Jacinda Martinez will be on display at the gallery, with a public reception during Belfast’s First Friday Art Walk, Friday June 26th from 5:30-8pm.
In concert with Maine Fare, farmer/artist Jacinda Martinez returns to Maine Farmland Trust Gallery with her stunning photographs of vegetable dresses. This POP-UP show, which is only on view during the Maine Fare festivities and the June art walk, will feature Martinez’ most recent work alongside images of older dresses. Viewers can even delight in some samples of the actual dresses, both in the gallery and during Martinez’ live sculpture garden on the Maine Fare Grounds, Saturday June 27 from 3:30–4:30pm.
Maine Farmland Trust created this gallery because we believe in farming, and because we are committed to its future. Our vision is of a gallery that captures the vibrancy of Maine’s farms and farmers, the intimate relationship to the earth and animals they tend – a gallery which celebrates agriculture through art. Founded in 2008, our gallery has increasingly become known as “a gallery with a mission.” It has attracted artists from all over Maine who share a love for our rural heritage and the earth’s well-being. We hope that through this gallery, more people will come to understand the promise of farming, and as a result, lend fervent support to our efforts to secure Maine’s agricultural future.
Roughly half of anything purchased at MFT Gallery goes to the local artist that made it, the other part to farmland preservation! (How’s that for a bang for your buck?)
