Betts Gallery at The Belfast Framer is exhibiting the work of artist Carolyn Caldwell from Deer Isle. The show runs through July 31, and the public is invited to a reception for the artist Friday, July 9 from 5 to 8 p.m.

Caldwell studied photography and art, then received a degree in architecture from Boston Architectural Center. She lived and designed houses in the Caribbean for 16 years before resuming her interest in pastels and paint.

She focuses her pastels and paintings on the way the changing light can transform a landscape into abstraction and architecture into geometric compositions. A member of both the Pastel Painters of Maine and Cape Cod and a member of the Deer Isle Artists Association, she gives pastel workshops and  private lessons in her Deer Isle studio.

Betts Gallery is located in The Belfast Framer, 96 Main St. Gallery hours are weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, call 338-6465 or visit
