Waterfall Arts Presents: Harold Garde @ 90
An evening celebrating artist Harold Garde will take place at Waterfall Arts on Wednesday, June 26th, beginning at 7pm. The evening will begin with a screening of Harold Garde/Working Artist/Directors Cut, directed by Dale Schierholt for PBS in 2008, followed by a question and answer session with Harold. This is a wonderful opportunity to get up close and personal with one of Maine’s most popular artists.
Harold Garde is a prolific artist who divides his time between Maine and Florida. In both places he’s demonstrated and taught the technique of dry acrylic image transfer he developed and named Strappo. A monograph survey of his paintings was published in 2009. This year Harold celebrates his 90th birthday; an exhibit “Harold @ 90” is currently on display at Harbor Square Gallery in Rockland. Waterfall Arts is honored to welcome Harold back for this special event in Belfast. Garde will also lead a 3-day strappo workshop at Waterfall Arts July 17th -19th from 10-1. Space is limited.
Waterfall Arts is located at 256 High Street in Belfast; the center’s mission is to create community in harmony with nature through the transformative power of the arts – feel the power of art!
