The organic image group of artists will open their annual “Beltane” show with a 4 to 6 p.m. reception Tuesday, May 1 at Badger Café & Pub, on the Common. The show will run through the month.

The cycle of the seasons brings us to the season of renewal and new growth, of productivity and reproductivity. The “Beltane” artwork is mythic, edgy, visceral, chakratic, suggestive of rites and rituals and the dance we dance for ourselves from within — and the dance we dance with others,

The 12 artists participating are Christine Barstow, Rockport; Clarity, Rockland and Warren; Janelle Delicata, Prospect; Asha Fenn, Sandy Point; Elisabeth Goodridge, Appleton; Judith Mitchell, Waldoboro; ED Moffitt, Belfast and Sandy Point; Laurie Proctor, Fairfield; Louise Shorette, Belfast and Jackson; Gwen Sylvester, Rockland; Lucinda Talbot, Belfast; and Deb Vendetti, Hope.
