Beyond the Sea Gallery-Café, 74 Main St., has a couple of event planned for the holiday weekend, which begins with the Friday, July 2 Belfast Art Walk. Beyond the Sea will host a pink champagne reception from 5 to 8 p.m. for Elizabeth Scott O’Haverty’s “Conversations with Water,” a show of acrylic on panel paintings that will continue through Wednesday, July 7.

Formerly of England and New York City, O’Haverty, a Maine resident for nearly four decades, works with oil, acrylic, inks and pastel. Many of her paintings include collage. “My large theme concentrates on capturing the dynamics of ‘the arrested domestic moment,’ snapshots of every day life taken by that most amazing camera of all time, the human eye,” she said.

Complimentary fare will be served. For more information, call 338-2100.

On Saturday, July 3, Beyond the Sea will host a book signing from 1 to 3 p.m. with author Patricia Hughes for her “Maine’s Waterfalls: A Comprehensive Guide” and “Lost Loot: Ghostly New England Treasure Tales.”

The recently released “Maine’s Waterfalls: A Comprehensive Guide” explores the history, photographic qualities and accessibility of 177 waterfalls spread across the 16 counties of Maine. Directions are given for each site, including the extinct waterfalls.

“Lost Loot, Ghostly New England Treasure Tales” offers ghostly and supernatural beings, monsters and pirate loot; missing treasures, abandoned and lost towns; Native American legends and buried mines.

Hughes was born and raised in New England, where she has encountered and explores treasure-rich and mysterious history.
