“Turning a Corner,” a show of new works by ED Moffitt, is on view through Jan. 31 at the Belfast Co-op Café, 123 High St.

Moffitt is a local artist who works primarily in graphite, charcoal and mixed media on illustration board, plywood, various papers and canvas. He also occasionally creates sculpture. Currently, about half his work is “people work” — figures, portrait work and people, both in and out of context. The rest is a mix of people and landscapes, especially trees and salt marsh environs; and existential themes.

Moffitt may be found fairly often at his studio of 21 years at the Belfast Center; at Sandy Point, where he has a small secluded waterside camp and studio; or out “in the field” around Rockland (hometown territory), Owls Head, the Weskeag (especially the salt marsh) and St. George to Monhegan.
