The First Light Gallery, located downtown at the main corner, is reviewing artists’ work in all media except jewelry. The gallery asks artists to pay rent and work instead of charging a commission; artists receive all the revenue from their sales. Both full spaces and half-spaces are available including shelf space for fine crafts, which are especially needed at this time.

First Light Gallery is a member of the Belfast Arts Group and participates in the Friday Night Art Walks. Artists are promoted in at least one show each summer season, usually have a work or two on display in the front windows and often are featured on the gallery’s Web site.

Interested artists should contact Lucinda Talbot at, call the gallery at 338-3626 or stop in when the gallery is open. For more information, visit
