Paint the Farm: Artists working on Maine farms
July 24, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Farmland, farmers, and farming.
Each can be viewed from many angles—and each perspective reveals its own value. Art helps us see that value. It helps us both see the parts and see the whole.

Belfast & Damariscotta. In the cold fall of 2014, a handful of artists took their sketch books and cameras and ventured out onto a couple of farms preserved by Maine Farmland Trust: Buckle Farm in Unity, and Rolling Acres in Jefferson. It was the beginning of a nine-month project coordinated by Maine Farmland Trust Gallery in Belfast and the Falcon Foundation in Damariscotta, connecting approximately forty artists with twenty Maine farms.
