Beyond the Sea Gallery-Café, 74 Main St., invites everyone to the Belfast Arts Friday Gallery Walk pink champagne reception for Maine native Jude Nickerson Friday, July 30 from 5 to 8 p.m.

Nickerson’s exhibit of new work, “Of Shoals and Shadows,” will continue through Aug. 15. Painting plein air along the Midcoast aboard the Sea Bass, Nickerson said she considers her style to be poetic expressionist.
