Landing Gallery shows ‘Ordinary Time’

“Boat House, Port Clyde, Maine,” by Melissa Post van der Burg.

Landing Gallery is showing the solo exhibition “Ordinary Time,” featuring new paintings by Melissa Post van der Burg, through Aug. 2.

The artist chose the title “weeks before the advent of COVID-19 made its way into our collective awareness,” she said. “I wanted to describe daily lives in and around Maine to those who may only see it during their brief summer visits. Now, with the pandemic in our midst, we are all distance from each other and, in some instances, unable to fully participate in vacation traditions. But we have art, and these paintings will be once again ‘Ordinary Time.’”

The artist is self taught and lives and works in Maine.

Landing Gallery is at 409 Main St. in Rockland. Hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Masks are required. For more information, call 207-239-1223 or email
