Belfast Art Market takes seasonal bow

Aug 22, 2014
Bill Davis works in both two- and three-dimensional media … and he also paints the occasional Belfast Art Market sign.

Belfast — The season has flown by and there is hustle and bustle as the members of Belfast Art Market get ready for the last market of the season Friday, Aug. 29, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the grounds of Waterfall Arts, 256 High St. There will be much to see and one last market to enjoy and choose what to take home.

Options include Robin Kronish-Byrne’s felted purses, Sally Demeter’s temari Japanese string balls, Jean Fink's delightful dolls and Bill Davis' bowls. B.A.M. offers fine art, with both Jon Byrer and Bob Hyde's paintings; fabric art from a variety of artists, including wearable, decorative and household items such as Nora Flanagan's quilts and pillows; decorative ceramics from Joseph Barberio and Nancy Peasley; a wide array of jewelry from Patie Thompson, Mari Hanby, Sonja Twombley, Kelly Kelsey-Davis and Mary Kivel; pottery from Anna Woof, Neale La Salle and Davis; and tie-dyed T-shirts by Charliy Michaud II.

While at market, one can visit the healing arts booth of Diana Delaney, who offers chair massage in addition to fabric earrings and a new line of "onesies"; and explore the ancient arts of tarot with Kyla Gagancech while enjoying screenprints of James Gagancech.

The farmers also will be marketing their scrumptious harvest, and the doors of Waterfall Arts will be open, showing “Living in these Bodies, Part II” in its gallery. For more information about B.A.M., visit belfastartmarket.weebly.com.
