Art, wine and ‘Tree’ at the Co-op

May 26, 2014
"Sticks on Root 66" is part of Leslie Mayer’s “Family Tree’ show at the Belfast Co-op.

Belfast — On Friday, May 30, 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 Leslie Mayer's art exhibit, "Family Tree Hanging Out," which will be on display in the Co-op Cafe through late June.

Heidi Martin of South Portland Wine Co. and Jaap Helder from the Co-op's Wine Department will be available to answer questions. Featured wines will be 10 percent off during the tasting; participants must be 21 years of age or older to attend.

Mayer's series developed out of the need to focus on happy and fun things during the onset of serious and now chronic illness. “Family Tree root 'n for one and all' has become a much-loved line of greeting cards, which are available at the Belfast Co-op and other retail locations throughout the United States. Mayers lives in Maine, happily surrounded by trees, painting. She has been selling art since 1989 through private collectors, juried craft fairs, retail and wholesale venues. To learn more, visit

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
