    Works in painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, assemblage, collage, photography, and digital imagery are among the more than 100 individual pieces in the upcoming Maine Art Gallery Members Show. Artists were invited to submit two works for display. “The approaches, technical skills and imagery are wide ranging, which makes for a lively show,” said Mark Coates, exhibit chair. 

    An opening reception at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 19 features guitarist Jud Caswell. This exhibit will run from Aug. 17 - Sept. 17. The gallery is open Thursday - Sunday from 11 a.m. to  4 p.m.

    Maine Art Gallery members come not only from the Midcoast area, but also from areas of Maine where a venue to show art may not exist. Member participation helps to make the Maine Art Gallery sustainable and plays an important part in its mission of building community through the arts. The Maine Art Gallery gratefully acknowledges show sponsor, First National Bank, and season sponsor, Sherri Dunbar of Tim Dunham Realty.
