David Estey’s painting “Fishers” is one of 15 in a guest solo exhibit at Local Color Gallery.

Award-winning Belfast painter David Estey will be featured in a guest solo show that runs from Aug. 4 to 29 at Local Color Gallery.

An artist reception will be held from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Aug. 7.

Estey is a graduate of Crosby High School in Belfast, Rhode Island School of Design and George Washington University. He has lived, exhibited and taught art in Maine, the Mid-Atlantic States and North Carolina. 

Estey has been in 23 solo shows and over 90 juried or group exhibits, including recently being accepted into a nationally-competitive, museum show juried by acclaimed New York artist Paul Ching-Bor.

Estey describes his work as purely improvisational. As a Maine resident, he feels he cannot escape the serene beauty of the snowy fields, the blue-black waters and the rugged coast, not to mention the major issues facing humanity. They are all a visceral part of his work.

Local Color Gallery will also feature Estey’s work in the Fourth Friday Art Walk on Aug. 27.

The gallery is at 135 High St. in Belfast, open every day. For details, visit localcolorgallerymaine.com.
