Digital Art Images menggunakan Facebook. Knowing the story of the artist or the paintings brings an intimacy and worth that goes beyond the visual curiosity. When you buy an art work, you’re buying the hours, days, even years of creation and experimentation, frustration and pleasure. It could sound creepy, but you actually are shopping for a bit of the artist, of their soul. So take the time to study who and what you are investing in.

WISCASSET — “Acquired Symbols,” featuring work by Maine artist John Lorence and colleagues, is to be on display Saturday, June 12, through Saturday, July 17, at the Maine Art Gallery at 15 Warren St.

An opening reception is scheduled for 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday, June 12.

BELFAST — Waterfall Arts plans to host “Funny HaHa,” an “All Ages Art Happening,” from 1 to 3 pm. Saturday, June 12, at Steamboat Landing Park, 34 Commercial St.

At this picnic-style, distanced gathering, youth comics as young as 4 are invited to step up to the stage to share their best jokes or silly songs. There will be goofy games to get the crowd giggling, a collaborative doodle area, a special “Dad Joke” competition, and materials for a surprising drawing game by the Surrealists called “Exquisite Corpse.”

Attendees can wear wacky get-ups and bring picnics, but are asked to please avoid wrappers or other fly-away items, and to pack out all trash.

The events are community-building art parties that engage people of all ages
