An exhibition of recent acrylic paintings by Janice Anthony of Jackson will open with a 4 to 6 p.m. reception Sunday, Aug. 19 at Frost Gully Gallery, 150 Main St./Route 1. The show will continue through Sept. 23.

Gallery owner Tom Crotty said there are few great artists in Maine with devotion to and reverence for the unique qualities that this place continues to nourish.

“We sorely miss Neil Welliver, Rackstraw Downes and Andrew Wyeth … Here is an exhibition that provides us with an opportunity to review our relationship with pure, sophisticated, wonderful Maine landscape painting,” he said.

Anthony’s work has received critical acclaim and is finding its way into more and more important American collections. Her work has been included in many important exhibitions across this country, among them recent invitational exhibitions at the Arnot Art Museum in Elmire, N.Y., and Rockport’s Center for Maine Contemporary Art.

Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
