Join Archipelago, the Island Institute’s store and gallery, for its summer gallery show, “Currents and Channels: Four Coastal Maine Artists,” currently on display through September 25th. “Currents and Channels” looks at the Maine coast through the art of four local artists—each with unique perspectives, both geographically and conceptually, of the landscape and culture of their respective communities.
This current exhibition showcases the work of coastal Maine artists, each using different mediums and styles to highlight their views of their communities and their shared coast.
The featured artists include: Kaitlyn Miller of Islesford, Leecia Price of Rockland, Michael Torlen of Monhegan, and Michele O’Keefe of Vinalhaven.
As with the channels and currents that move between the harbor city of Rockland and the islands of Monhegan, Islesford, and Vinalhaven, this show is reflective of the art and creativity flow and circulate in and around the bays of Maine.
Located at 386 Main Street in downtown Rockland, Archipelago 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 Wednesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
A special artists’ reception will be held for the show on Friday, August 6th from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
