    River Arts Gallery in Damariscotta invites the public to the annual, all abstract show. A jovial celebration with artists and refreshments held Sept. 9 made for a delightful afternoon in the gallery.

    “Abstract,” was selected by artist and educator, Kayla Mohammadi. She chose an impressive display of artwork from 82 artists from a substantial pool of 136 applicants.

    This show features artists from all over Maine who have created works of non-representational abstraction in many styles. A smorgasbord of expression communicates contemporary ideas in paint, photography, sculpture, glass, fiber and more. For everyone interested in abstract art, this is a spell binding show at River Arts. From large, bold statements to the quiet, subtlest whispers of reflection, “Abstract” runs the gamut of artistic abstract fluency.

    In conjunction with the opening of “Abstract,” the River Room will feature a reception for the artist Cathy Bennigson in the River Room. Her solo show of abstract paintings complements the main galleries beautifully! Bennigson show runs until Sept. 13.

    The all “Abstract” show will run until Oct. 14. River Arts is located at 36 Elm St. in Damariscotta. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information: call 563-6868 or visit
