    BRAF’s final members’ show for the summer of ’23 is providing a seasonal theme with fall colors predominating, along with the “perennial” last blooms of summer. As always, our collection includes an eclectic variety of styles, mediums and subject matter.

    In addition to the regular members’ show, BRAF is sponsoring two special solo-artists with shows in the upstairs area. In Gallery One, East Boothbay artist, Jim Farnan has a collection of iconic local scenes. Subjects include The Footbridge House, The Opera House, East Boothbay General Store, and The Linekin Bay Chapel. among others.

    In the upstairs Harbor-View Room, Villard Studios has installed a display called “Collections from 30 years of Collaboration.”  The gallery is filled with examples of Kim and Philippe Villard’s  Whiteline Color Woodcuts which include scenery of the Harbor, floral pieces, and views from nature’s bounty.

    The current members’ exhibit and the upstairs solo shows will continue through Sept. 26. Our Gallery is located in downtown Boothbay Harbor at 1 Townsend Ave. We are open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
