An exhibit of indoor work by creators of ECO-Motion sculptures currently gracing downtown streets will open Friday, July 9 at Waterfall Arts Belfast, 256 High St., with a reception for the artists from 5 to 7 p.m.

Other artists with a bent towards interactive or moveable work also are included in the Clifford Gallery exhibit, which will be on display through Sept. 17.

ECO-Motion artists Patrick and Victor Plourde from New Gloucester created the large metal “Spiral” installed near City Hall and plan to exhibit flatwork design drawings and metal sculptures. Paul Cartwright of Camden, who made the popular “Taking Care of Business” bike fountain at the corner of High and Main, will show a handmade wooden unicycle. Cy Klausmeyer from Swanville, who has a number of “winged” creatures on the streets, will include two or three interactive sculptures in the show. Christine Dentremont from Swan’s Island made spinning flowers for Main Street and a swooping wooden bench for the exhibit.

Other artists in the show include Wes Reddick, who will bring a large wheeled sculpture to the gallery. Leslie Pontz from Philadelphia and Liberty will show some of her crocheted wire pieces, and Jay Sawyer of Warren will install one of his welded metal sculptures. Metal pieces by David McLaughlin also will be included in the exhibit.

Clifford Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and by appointment. For more information, call 338-2222 or visit
