Dolan’s ‘Take’ at Belfast Co-op
Belfast — "My Take in Color," an exhibition of photography by Sandy Dolan, will open Friday, Nov. 1, with a 7 to 9 p.m. reception and monthly free wine tasting with cheese and crackers in the café of the Belfast Co-op, 123 High St.
Wine tasting participants must be age 21 or older, and featured wines will be 10 percent off. Jack Scully of Easterly Wines and Jaap Helder from the co-op’s wine department will be available to answer questions; and Dolan will be on hand to talk about her work.
Some of Dolan's color photographs, taken at locations around Maine, head into the abstract as she pushes herself to go beyond the typical Maine scene. There are four components she feels must come together to make a good photograph: integrity; simplicity; design; and mood.
Dolan has been taking photographs for about 35 years. She has worked professionally as well as artistically in this medium including several years working for The Republican Journal. She graduated from the Massachusetts College of Art as a photography major. Her photographs have been published in both local and national magazines. She also is also a plein air oil painter.

All are welcome at the community-owned Belfast Co-op, open daily from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, call 338-2532 or visit belfast.coop.
