Barberio featured at art market
Belfast — The Belfast Art Market, held Fridays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Waterfall Arts, 256 High St., has been privileged to host a variety of talented artists this season. The market runs alongside the farmers market, so body and soul are fed in one fun location.
This season, B.A.M. has been especially blessed with an array of potters, each with a unique style and focus. Joseph Barberio, who has worked as a stained glass artist for more than 35 years, also works with hand-built, barrel-fired sculptures. Instead of the "do not touch" signs that commonly adorn artists’ tables or shops, Barberio has signs that say “pick me up …”
The Massachusetts native has lived in Maine for many years and now keeps his studio in Belfast. His clay and glass can be found throughout the country in private collections and adorning churches, homes and other buildings.
In addition to clay artists at the market Aug. 30, there will be jewelers, photographers, quilters, essential oil purveyors, felters, green-friendly recycling artists and more. For further information, email kkelseydavis@ gmail.com or visit belfastartmarket.weebly.com.
