On Friday, Aug. 28, 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 "An Illustrator's Art," an exhibit of delicately painted and detailed watercolors into enchanted places by Brooks artist Kim Jacobs.

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.

In celebration of the publication of the 27th edition of her “Cobblestone Way Calendar” and the October publication of her first children's book, Jacobs will be presenting original artwork from both, as well as examples of her illustration process from sketch to printed piece. She will be on hand to discuss her artwork and sign copies of her 2016 calendar during the opening, which will be available for purchase.

For more than 30 years, Jacobs’ art has adorned a great variety of gift, toy, household and stationery products; been published as prints and in books she has written and illustrated; crafted into three-dimensional decoupage images; needle-crafted; worn; and pieced into countless puzzles, all enjoyed around the world. She has drawn inspiration from such diverse sources as art, literature, dreams, fantasies and her own extensive travels, blending all together to portray places that exist nowhere and anywhere.

"An Illustrator's Art" will remain on display in the Co-op Cafe through late September. 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.
