Jul 18, 2014
Jean Mahoney-Morse of Belfast brings her creative creatures to the Belfast Art Market this week.

Belfast — Friday, July 25, is a big day — and night — for art in Belfast. The Belfast Art Market will gather more than 20 local artisans, displaying wares alongside the local farmers market From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the ground of Waterfall Arts, 256 High St. Inside, there is a last-week chance to see the powerful exhibit "Living in these Bodies, Part 1."

Along with a variety of jewelry, aromatherapy, home decor, fabric art, oil paintings, music and pottery, B.A.M. will feature sculpture by Jean Mahoney-Morse of Belfast. Mahoney-Morse creates a vast array of delightful products including dichroic glass jewelry, handbags, greeting cards, felted work and, her newest line, Forest Folk spirit figures and animals of clay with pelts. Her work has been featured in many issues of Somerset Studio and Stamplers Sampler Magazine. She also has been the recipient of several awards including the Sunday International Contest for color application and the Nick Bantock contest.

Later in the day, one can ramble the city’s Main Street for this month’s Final Fridays Art Walk, held from 5:30 to 8 p.m. There will be a special kirtan with Shiva Lila held at Flourish, upstairs at 101-B Main St., beginning at 7:30 p.m.
