Finding Our Voices, a Maine-based nonprofit working to raise awareness about domestic violence, has mounted an exhibit at venues throughout Belfast and is holding a related silent auction online through June 30. An outdoor reception in the park on Main Street in Belfast will be held on Saturday, June 26, from 2 to 4 p.m.; survivors and participating artists will be present to speak with attendees.

Over 60 Waldo County artists are represented in 35 downtown business windows and 35 windows of the city hall, as well as in two rooms at the Belfast Free Library.

Featured are photographs, paintings, poetry, sculpture, fiber art, collage and more, created to express the theme Love/Not Love.

The silent auction of artwork can be found by visiting findingourvoices.net; proceeds benefit the organization’s work. For more information, visit the website or email Patrisha McLean, the group’s founder/president, at hello@findingourvoices.net.
