Archipelago introduces its new fall and winter gallery show, “Maine Life,” on Friday, October 4 with a special opening reception, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., during Rockland’s First Friday Art Walk. This show exhibits art that reflects life in Maine and adds beautiful craft and design elements to our living spaces, and features splashes of color, rich landscape scenes, textiles, and stained glass home decor.
New to Archipelago are Hillary Hutton’s handwoven rugs with eye-catching designs, William Hallett’s vibrant interpretations of coastal Maine scenes, and cement tile reliefs by Betty Heselton. Archipelago favorites also on exhibit include Kathleen Buchanan’s collagraphs, Linden O’Ryan’s watercolors, Leecia Price’s encaustic and cold wax pieces, Richard MacDonald’s stained glass sconces and mirrors, and Rocky Mann’s saggar pottery.
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.
