“Daffodils on a Farm Table,” by DiTa Ondek, acrylic on canvas

Local Color Gallery announces a partial reopening, with hours from noon to 4 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Work by one of its new artists, DiTa Ondek, is currently featured in the space. Her work includes acrylic paintings with evocative colors, unexpected patterns of light and the sublime quality of ordinary objects. Canvases primed in purples and black evolve with fearless strokes and bright colors from drawings, plein-air sketches or photographs. She has developed a style of her own — moments frozen fresh and bright, impulsive and whimsical.

Ondek believes there is an inherent intimacy in everyday life, be it in the garden, the field or a farmhouse kitchen. Her intent is to draw the viewer into this vision of intimacy in the everyday.

Local Color Gallery is at 135 High St., Belfast. Updates are available at localcolorgallerymaine.com.
