The juried Belfast Art Market meets each Friday through August from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the front lawn of Waterfall Art, 256 High St., rain or shine. Artists come from as far away as Thomaston and Ellsworth and all points in between — even some from as far as New York City — to offer clothing, jewelry, accessories, candles, pottery, soap and body care products, appliqué quilts, fiber arts, stuffed animals, fine arts including acrylic, watercolor and oil paintings and prints, professional photographic prints and more.

Featured Aug. 21 will be Amy Bramblett of Blue Hill whose crafting with beeswax began with a desire to create beautiful and functional hand-made items using natural, locally available and sustainably produced materials.  All her candles are made from 100 percent pure beeswax sourced from small-scale beekeepers and are individually hand-poured.  Beeswax is completely non-toxic, burns longer and more cleanly than paraffin wax and, unlike paraffin, is a renewable resource. The wax is minimally filtered and retains the sweet honey aroma of the hive.

Bramblett’s line of all-natural body care products grew out of her enjoyment working with beeswax and a desire to find new ways to use the material. The result, made using natural oils, butters, herbs, essential oils and pure beeswax, do not contain colorants, artificial fragrances or preservatives or synthetic ingredients.
