On Friday, June 26, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Belfast Co-op Café, there will be a free wine tasting of highlighted seasonal wines and the opening for "Winter White House," a photography exhibit by newcomer Deborah Stevenson that documents her historically cold, snowy first winter in Belfast.

Jack Scully of Easterly Wines will host this month's tasting with a focus on seasonal wines, along with Jaap Helder from the Co-op's wine department. Featured wines will be 10 percent off during the tasting; participants must be 21 years of age or older to attend.

There also be local food pairings highlighting Maine producers, in conjunction with Maine Fare, a two-day food festival on the Belfast waterfront. For more information about Maine Fare, visit maine-fare.org.

Stevenson, who will be on hand during the opening, was born in Washington, D.C., grew up in Tokyo, went to high school in Baltimore and got her bachelor’s degree from Sarah Lawrence College in New York. She lived for many years on the West Coast before returning to the East Coast, where she lived in Brooklyn, N.Y., until moving to Belfast last year. She works across a variety of media including painting, collage and panorama photo-collage. Her work can be viewed atdeborahstevenson.com.

"Winter White House" will remain on display in the Co-op Cafe through late July. All are welcome at the community-owned Belfast Co-op, open 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily at 123 High St. For more information, call 338-2532 or visit belfast.coop.
