ROCKLAND— Join Archipelago to celebrate Maine’s high season with an opening reception for the new summer gallery show, “King Tide,” on Friday, August 2nd. The Island Institute’s store and gallery will host a special artists’ reception, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., during Rockland’s First Friday Art Walk.
“King Tide,” showcases the work of four Maine women, each using very different mediums and styles to depict both real and inspired landscapes around our beautiful state. The featured artists include Wendy Newcomb of Sebago (oil, gouache, and acrylic paintings), Holly Berry of Waldoboro (linocut prints), Molly Mains of Bridgton (printmaking and multimedia), and Marguerite Lawler of Portland (oil paintings). Paintings by Henry Isaacs will also be highlighted in the show.
In addition to the opening reception on August 2nd, the public is also invited to stop into Archipelago’s Main Street location during the First Friday Art Walk on September 6th to celebrate this show, enjoy a selection of snacks and beverages, and see all of the pieces. The “King Tide” exhibition will be on display through September 29th.
Located at 386 Main Street in Rockland, the Archipelago Fine Arts Gallery features artists who work with natural, coastal, and working waterfront themes inspired by living and creating art in Maine. Both the store and gallery are currently open seven days a week: Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.; Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; and Sunday, 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
