Everyone is invited to a First Friday opening reception at Åarhus Gallery, 50 Main St. The gallery’s furniture-show-of-sorts “Aprons, Arms, Legs and Drawers” will open Thursday, May 5 and have its opening reception Friday, May 6 from 5 to 8 p.m.

This exhibition is as much about furniture as it is of furniture. Åarhus Gallery has assembled a roomful of Maine artists showing work with a central theme of furniture — paintings, drawings, collage and sculpture about, or pertaining for the most part to, the artists’ musings and interpretations of … furniture. The show also will feature actual furniture, designed and built by several exceptional Maine artisans new to the Åarhus scene.

Artists featured in this exhibition include Matt Berta, Louise Bourne, Anne Cox, Heidi Daub, Aaron Fedarko, Harold Garde, Jay Gibson, Frances Hodsdon, Jeffrey Jelenfy, Kevin Johnson, Paul Jurutka, Mark Kelly, Richard Mann, John McAlevey, Kate McLeod, Pat Plourde, Abbie Read, Wesley Reddick, Willy Reddick, Tim Rousseau, Sarah Szwajkos, Liza Wheeler and Andrea Young.

Current gallery hours are Thursdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. “Aprons, Arms, Legs and Drawers” will run through May 29. For more information, call 338-0001 or visit aarhusgallery.com, where a slide show of the current works will be available.
