The weekly Belfast Art Market continues Friday, Aug. 7, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the lawn of Waterfall Arts, 256 High St. Around the corner on another part of the art center’s grounds, the Belfast Farmer’s Market takes place at the same time.

B.A.M. takes place rain or shine, every Friday through August. Some of the juried artists are on hand each week, and a few rotate as schedules permit; some are Midcoast residents, while others come from as far away as New York City. Visitors will find clothing, jewelry, colorful accessories, beeswax carved candles, pottery, handcrafted soap, body care products, appliqué quilts, fiber arts (some wearable and some for decorative purposes only), stuffed animals, fine arts including acrylic, watercolor and oil paintings and prints, professional photographic prints and more.

This week’s featured artist is Jessica Harris, who describes herself as a self-taught artist and jeweler who has spent her life growing, living, creating, and loving in rural Maine. She has a shop/studio in Ellsworth, Flowers in the Attic Studio, and produces artwork and jewelry inspired by the ocean, animals and plants. She likes to resurrect discarded items into new art forms, an approach demonstrated in her Artfully Orchestrated series of paintings on salvaged sheet music, lively pastel still lifes of farmer's market veggies, beach treasure fine silver pendants and earrings and vintage beaded jewelry.
