Belfast — The opening for Lily Piel's photography exhibit "Groundbreakers: Mainers Shaping Agriculture’s Future" coincides with the monthly free wine tasting of highlighted seasonal wines Friday, Dec. 6, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Belfast Co-op Café. Karolyn Melino of Pine State Beverage and Ron Poirier from the Co-op’s wine department will be available to answer questions. Featured wines will be 10 percent off during the tasting; participants must be 21 years of age or older to attend.

Piel has captured people who have helped revive farming in Maine and who remain committed to the cause. Her project was commissioned by Maine Farmland Trust, a statewide nonprofit organization that works to keep Maine’s farms farming; and successfully uses the arts to help educate people about farming’s challenges and opportunities.
