Boothbay Region Art Foundation’s current exhibit illustrates “July in Maine” from as many angles as there are artists. This members’ show, representing 106 regional artists, also marks a milestone for the foundation, celebrating 60 years of continuous operation as a nonprofit whose mission is to create opportunities for people of all ages to enjoy, learn from and participate in the visual arts.

In addition to the regular members exhibit, BRAF is sponsoring two solo shows in the upstairs showrooms. Gallery One is featuring two artists from the Bangor area: Joanne Houlsen, who works in acrylics, has a grouping of “Seaside Homes and Gardens,” and watercolorist Diana Young has selections from her “Figures in “Life’scapes.”

The Harbor View Room is occupied by the Villard Studios, well-known for their wood block prints, white line prints, watercolor wood block prints and hand-bound artists’ books. Their exhibit, “PORTAL,” serves to present a historic look into a forgotten medium and gives us a larger view of the history of Mount Pisgah and the early Commonwealth Art Colony of Boothbay Harbor.

Boothbay Region Art Foundation is at 1 Townsend Ave., Boothbay Harbor. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. See for more information.
