On Saturday, Aug. 13 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Maine Coast Heritage Trust’s Aldermere Farm will hold its annual art show and sale in the beautiful historic farmhouse located on the Aldermere Farm property at 20 Russell Ave.

The yearly event highlights how local artists capture the beauty of the place through original paintings and prints of the Belted Galloway cattle and different pastoral vistas of the farm. This event benefits the farm and the many programs it offers throughout the year, as well as local artists. The paintings and prints will be on display and for sale throughout the day with this year’s show once again having Maine coastal scene paintings to honor the years of work Maine Coast Heritage Trust has put into preserving properties along the coast.

The Aldermere art show and sale consists of fun and traditional pieces so there are a wide variety of paintings to choose from. More than 200 pieces of artwork will be on display from more than 40 local artists. Also available during the event are numerous Belted Galloway items from T-shirts and hats to magnets and stuffed animal Belties. Beltie beef will be available for purchase that day, as well.
