“What If” by Marli Thibodeau.

July and August will feature guest artists Liz Prescott and Marli Thibodeau at Local Color Gallery in Belfast. 

Prescott’s art is driven by a love of process and color. Her current work focuses on reflected images, particularly of boats and buildings forming, dissolving and re-forming.

She is a graduate of Maine College of Art and Vermont College of Fine Arts. Prescott’s work is included in the permanent collections at the Portland Museum of Art, Colby College, Bowdoin College, New York Public Library and the University of New England.

“Swans Island Dreaming” by Liz Prescott.

Thibodeau is a contemporary artist influenced by the natural world and the lineage of abstract expressionism artists, such as Helen Frankenthaler and Franz Kline. Her direction is toward non-objective paintings as she immerses herself in the beauty of the world around her and explores self-discovery through movement and visual art.

Thibodeau maintains a year-round studio in Rockland. Her work has been exhibited in the Northeast and is held in private collections in the U.S. and Europe. 

Local Color Gallery is open seven days a week at 135 High St., Belfast. Hours are noon to 4 p.m. Thursday through Sunday. Learn more at localcolorgallerymaine.com.
