WATERFALL ARTS NEWS

What happens when a beloved community arts organization gets taken over by quasi-art entities whose goals and motivations are unclear (and suspect at best)? Such is the question brought forth by artist/curator Kenny Cole in the upcoming four-artist exhibition, “GALLERY CLOSED”, featuring work by Kenny Cole, Geoff Hargadon, Paula Lalala, and Brian Reeves (up July 26 - September 20).  Viewers are invited to contemplate who shows, disseminates, and controls our perceptions about art. Subversive yet playful, this exhibition will feature a room-scale installation in the Clifford Gallery.

Belfast Farmers' Market Needs Your Help!

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY
Do you have 2 hours available on an occasional Friday morning?
Do you want to support the markets' efforts to provide low-income shoppers with access to local food? Perhaps you appreciate the convenience of having the option to use your credit card at market? Maybe you just enjoy and value the Belfast Farmers' Market community and would be willing to give us an extra hand.  We are looking for a few additional volunteers to staff the market info booth this summer. Currently, we have a fabulous group of volunteers who tirelessly show up every Friday morning and work 2-4 hour shifts at the info booth, but we need more help for the bustling summer months. Volunteer duties include: welcoming shoppers, providing EBT/SNAP and credit card customers with clipboards for shopping, adding up shopping sheets, swiping customer cards on the markets' wireless machine, distributing Maine Harvest Bucks and answering general questions about the market.
No experience necessary, just a friendly and positive attitude.
Contact Marcia at Peacemeal Farm (peacemealfarm@gmail.com) for more details.
MAINE HARVEST BUCKS UPDATE
We just received an update from the Maine Federation of Farmers' Markets, the organization that manages the Maine Harvest Bucks program.
Now that the funding from the USDA FINI grant has been confirmed for the next three years, we will be handing out new vouchers.
We will also be able to accept vouchers with the 3/31/2019 expiration date
