A children’s art show to benefit the Northeast Harbor Scholarship Program will be up July 19 through Aug. 1.

Shows scheduled for Aug. 2 through Sept. 13 are paintings by Ralf Feyl titled “MaineStay,” “Beneath the Sea” by Annie Bailey and “The Sensitive Landscape” by Larry Lefever.

The Main Street Mercantile shop and gallery, owned by Erika Wibby Mitchell, opened May 21 in the former Redfield Artisans Gallery space.
