BAM wraps up its season
Belfast — Belfast Art Market will hold its last market for the season Friday, Sept. 27, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the grounds of Waterfall Arts. 256 High St. A full array of artists is scheduled to be gathered on the front lawn, next to the Belfast Farmers Market.
One of the artists who always draw a crowd is Sue Cobb, who will be on hand with her beautifully wrapped cabochons. Cobb travels yearly, with her husband, to shop for the most interesting and beautiful stones she can find.
“My interest in jewelry making has always been about the stones. I love a stone with character much more than one that is perfect," she said.
Cobb wire-wraps her pieces in a way that allows the beauty of the stone to not be lost, thinking of her settings as a framemaker might think of frames for fine art. She said it took her nearly 10 years to develop a wire-wrapping style she was really happy with, and it is a style many customers love, as well.
Along with jewelry, visitors will find a wide assortment of other Maine-made works of art such as pottery, applique quilts, felting, re-purposed bags, photography, essential oils and more. For more information, visit belfastartmarket.weebly.com.
