Callas shares ‘Symbols and Self’

Jan 02, 2014
"Vertical River with Rabbit,” an ink on paper by Kimberly Callas, is part of the local artist’s January show at Belfast Free Library.

Belfast — “Symbols and Self,” an exhibit of sculpture, relief, and drawing by Kimberly Callas, is on display during January in the Kramer Gallery of the Belfast Free Library, 106 High St. Callas will give an artist’s talk in the library’s Abbott Room Tuesday Jan. 14, at 6:30 p.m.

Callas is a classically trained figurative sculptor. Her work has an ecological focus and incorporates patterns and materials from nature, as well as psychological and spiritual symbols from across traditions. Callas’ sculpture has recently been on exhibit in New York City, Chicago and as far afield as Sofia, Bulgaria. Recent awards for her work include a Puffin Foundation Grant and a Maine Arts Commission Visibility Grant, both in 2013.

Callas will be presenting a paper on her current project, Portraits of the Ecological Self, at the College Art Association Annual Conference in Chicago next month. She will give a preview of this talk as part of her artist’s talk in Belfast. To see more of Callas’ recent work, visit
