On Friday, March 27 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Belfast Co-op Café at 123 High Street in downtown Belfast, the Belfast Co-op is hosting a free all-ages musical art show opening with artist, musician, and farmer Elsie Gawler. Elsie will be joined by family and friends to provide live music. Refreshments will be served.
Elsie’s art show; “From the Field,” includes acrylic on wood works painted from photographs of vegetables she’s collected throughout the growing season at her farm, North Branch Farm in Monroe. “I am inspired throughout the season by the vibrant colors and textures of the vegetables and fruits we grow,” she says. Her show will be in display in the Belfast Co-op Café through late April.
Elsie Gawler is co-owner or North Branch Farm in Monroe; an organic, horse-powered farm focusing on winter storage vegetables, cow dairy, grass-fed beef, nursery fruit trees, and fruit. With her partner, Tyler Yentes, she manages the dairy and beef operations. She is currently working on launching their own farmstead creamery where they’ll produce hard, cave aged cheeses.
