Maine Farmland Trust Gallery’s Frolicking Fiber Fiesta is a colorful holiday show with a bounty of treasures for fiber art lovers, along with paintings to match their style. The arts and crafts on display range from high-end, fanciful wall hangings to cleverly repurposed feed bags – catering to any budget and perfect for that special gift.
Frolicking Fiber Fiesta will be on display from November 21st through January 5th. Maine Farmland Trust Gallery is located at 97 Main Street and open Monday through Friday (not on holidays) from 9-4. In addition, the gallery will be open Friday December 5th from 5:30-8pm. Saturday December 6th the gallery will be open from 6am -1:30pm for Belfast’s Early Bird Sale (all items discounted!), and during the Art Walk and Tree Lighting later that evening, 5:30-8pm, the gallery will host a festive reception for all.
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?)
