Betts Gallery at The Belfast Framer, 96 Main St., will feature a solo exhibition of Peg Worth’s new work in pastel through July 28. The opening reception is Friday, July 6 from 5:30 to 8 p.m.

Working in pastel represents a new direction in Worth’s work. She said her thoughts and observations made the subjects have new touches of light and new ways to shape the forms, so different than the control of the oil brush.

“There is a mystical magic to pastel,” said Worth, who has invited Betsy Birge of Liberty to show one of her pastels in the exhibit. Betts Gallery at The Belfast Framer is open 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
