Belfast Free Library will host an author and artist talk with Daniel Kany and Philip Frey on Wednesday, July 17, at 6:30 pm. Frey, who exhibits nationally, is known for his paintings of Maine’s coastline, landscape and working waterfronts. Art critic Kany has recently coauthored (with Carl Little) “Philip Frey: Here and Now,” the first in-depth look into Frey’s work and his place in Maine’s contemporary art scene. The talk is free and open to all.
