Gala Opening at River Arts

River Arts in Damariscotta invites the public to the opening reception of the Members Show on Friday, June 7 from 5 to 7 PM. Artists convene from all over the state of Maine for this annual exhibition that includes a wide range of modes and mediums. This showcase of members’ works highlights pieces that artists have chosen to most represent their individual styles. A show that truly expresses the strength of the artwork and creativity in Maine, this exhibition runs from now until July 6.

The evening also features a gala reception in the West Gallery of the works of Gerd Koehler. Koehler’s multi-media show, “Transitions,” focuses on a production of series of themes and variations in his graphic works. These graphic pieces express the process of Koehler’s development of visual ideas. Also on view are his impressive photographs of dramatic waves and

sculptural rocks. Gerd, a long-time resident of Maine, emigrated from his native Germany. He has worked in Germany, England, Switzerland and the Americas and is now retired from a career in printing and graphic arts integrating new technology solutions in manufacturing, sales and Marketing.
