Waterfall Arts, located at 256 High Street in Belfast, will reopen its gallery with an exhibition called “Photographing Belfast’s Waterfront: Then & Now” to be held June 18–August 29. A free opening reception will be held under tents outside the Waterfall Arts building on Friday, June 18, from 5 to 7 p.m., with the gallery open to small groups. The opening will feature a poetry reading planned in collaboration with the Office of the Belfast Poet Laureate.

The exhibition will include historic images as well as photos by contemporary photographers. Liv Kristin Robinson, lead curator, has been documenting the evolving Belfast harbor since 1988 and is known for her hand-painted photographic works of the Belfast waterfront, several of which are in the permanent collections of the Portland Museum of Art and the Farnsworth Art Museum. Other participating photographers include Marcie J. Bronstein, Leslie Gregory, Susan Guthrie, Betsy Headley, Jaap Helder, Terry Hire, Kevin Johnson, Lynn Karlin, Mark Kuzio, Ben Magro, Peggy McKenna, Richard Norton, Neal Parent and Louise Shorette.

A virtual tour of the gallery with the show’s curators will be available at waterfallarts.org. No reservations will be required to visit the gallery during the exhibit, which will be on view Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
