BELFAST - The Northern Lights Gallery at 33 Main Street in Belfast will open a new art exhibit featuring the work of painter Lisa Lebofsky and new sculpture from the collection of Judith Varney Burch on Friday, Dec. 7, 6-8 p.m. Eat More Cheese will provide a sampling of artisanal cheese, and wine will be provided.

Lisa Lebofsky is a fine artist based out of New York City. The exhibit will feature oil paintings on aluminum, a medium inspired by Lebofsky's background as a metalsmith. The exhibit, titled 'Sedna's Gaze' after the Inuit goddess of the sea, was inspired by Lebofsky's recent travel in arctic Greenland. In the summer of 2012, Lebofsky explored western Greenland for three weeks aboard Wanderbird, the expedition cruise vessel owned and operated by Belfast's Rick and Karen Miles, who also operate the Northern Lights Gallery. Lebofsky's work can be previewed on her website, www.lisalebofsky.com.

New businesses we're buzzing about in 2012

Frock Affair 

BANGOR - If the temperatures aren't putting you in a spring-like mood, then the colors bursting from inside the new Frock Affair retail store on Main Street in Bangor sure will. This retail co-op combines the styles and tastes of four trendy women to create one unique slice of paradise that'll leave any clothing, jewelry, handbag and shoe-loving female shopper thirsting for more.

"These are our personalities. We wear this stuff. We love it. It represents us," said Susan Stephenson, co-op participant. "And this all came together four or five weeks ago."

Frock Affair, which opened at the beginning of April inside the former Bella Luna store, combines designer apparel with the often Maine-made creations of Jessi Sader of FX Dressed, Meg Asher of Local Color in Northeast Harbor, Katherine Loblein of Katwalk in Belfast and Susan Stephenson, Bangor blogger and creator of the Dress to Impress project.
