“Hunting Season,” a casein on signboard painting by Max Ascrizzi of Freedom, is part of a three-man show at Waterfall Arts in Belfast.

Belfast — Waterfall Arts, 256 High St., will host an opening reception for “It’s All Relative: Works by 3 Ascrizzis,” a new exhibition spanning the Clifford and Corridor Galleries, Friday, Sept. 28, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. The Fourth Friday Art Walk reception is free and open to the public.

Waterfall Arts is pleased to hold an exhibition of exclusively Ascrizzi-made work, honoring a Waldo County family tradition of dedicated creativity, originality, wild imaginations and serious fun. Joe, his son Max and Joe’s late brother Tony also have been longtime friends of the art center since its inception in 2000.

The exhibition includes an eclectic mix of paintings, prints, small and large sculptures, woodwork, musical instruments and mixed media objects. “It’s All Relative” will continue through Nov. 16. Joe Ascrizzi will lead an artist talk Wednesday, Oct. 17, at 7 p.m.

The galleries are open Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; during events; and by appointment. For more information, call 338-2222 or visit waterfallarts.org. Exhibitions at Waterfall Arts are made possible by yearlong Lead Sponsors, Viking Lumber and Whitecap Builders. Additional support is provided by foundations such as the Onion Foundation and the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.

Launched in 2000, Waterfall Arts is a community arts center that offers resources to students, professionals and arts enthusiasts of all ages. Opportunities include classes, exhibitions, art events, performances, open community studios (clay, print, and darkroom photography), public art projects and more.
