Calling all senior artists! Senior College at Belfast is pleased to invite all Maine artists, 50 years of age and older, amateur and professional, to participate in this year’s Festival of Art event. For the past eleven years, this five day exhibit has included work from new artists who have never shown before, well- known accomplished artists whose work continues to astound, those artists who are striving to build their reputations, as well as those who only wish to share their work with an appreciative audience. There have been up to 180 artists participating in this event, and it does offer an opportunity for the artist to sell his/her work. The types of art vary extensively and include paintings, sculptures, woodcarvings, jewelry, fabric arts, pottery, and photography as a few examples. Senior artists especially encouraged!

We urge you to participate in this ongoing annual event of Senior College, and to encourage friends and acquaintances to share their talents with the one thousand-plus attendees who come to enjoy the exhibit each year. Senior college sponsors this Festival, with all volunteer support, as a “thank-you” to the communities it serves and to help recognize the extraordinary artistic talent that resides in this area of Maine. Senior artists sometimes have a lifetime of work to share!
