Connecting 1 by Liz Prescott




















Local Color Gallery invites the public to join us Friday, June 28, for Belfast’s Fourth Friday Art Walk. We will feature our popular guest artist, Liz Prescott, who recently returned from a painting trip to Croatia and Italy. She was inspired by many scenes she encountered in the narrow streets and on the water, creating a body of work that captures vivid and mesmerizing light, color, sounds, and people.

Bright Day by Liz Prescott


Prescott has been making art in her Freeport, Maine, studio for over twenty years. She exhibits her work throughout New England and is included in the permanent collections of Colby College, Bowdoin College, the Portland Museum of Art, the New York Public Library, and the University of New England. Prescott is a graduate of the Maine College of Art and the Vermont College of Fine Arts. She is a founding member of the Meetinghouse Arts Gallery in Freeport, where she remains an active gallery committee member. She teaches workshops on Monhegan Island, the Schoodic Peninsula at Acadia, and other gorgeous spots along the coast. Prescott is drawn to scenes of light and movement, often painting boat and building reflections that dissolve, transmute, and reform in the water, leading her towards abstraction while still retaining elements of representation. Over time, Prescott builds layers upon layers, developing ideas and allowing art to develop.

The Fourth Friday Art Walk is held from 4 to 7 pm. Liz Prescott will give a talk at 5 pm. Van Bankston continues as guest artist, and the regular members of Local Color will have new work on display. Local Color is located at 135 High Street, in Belfast. More information is available at
