Twelve Maine artists will sell their original art works at discounts to raise money for Maine Farmland Trust. The artwork will be on display during December at the Maine Farmland Trust Gallery, 97 Main St. Everyone is invited to a celebratory opening Friday, Dec. 2 from 5 to 8 p.m. to coincide with last art walk of the year.

The show is called “150 for a Dozen” because a dozen artists are offering their work for $150 and less. It features works by Vincent Abaldo, Joseph Barberio, Laurie Lofman Bellmore, Jill Caldwell, Julie Crane, Florence Donovan, Beth Henderson, Bill Huntington, Anne Kilham, Kathleen Perelka, Leia Pinnick Scotton and Sarah Wilde. Shoppers looking for affordable gifts will find Anne Kilham originals for as low as $20.

The show includes fiber arts, ceramics, photography, painting, watercolors, pastels, block prints, encaustics and mixed media. The gallery also will be selling various smaller items such as farm-related books, calendars, holiday cards, and note cards. The show will run through Jan. 4. Gallery hours are weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Maine Farmland Trust is a statewide non-profit organization working to permanently preserve and protect Maine’s agricultural lands, and to keep Maine’s farms farming.
