Beginning its 10th year, the downtown Galerie Dufour, 94 Main St., will open an exhibition of new works, “Dais,” with a 5:30 to 8 p.m. First Friday reception Sept. 7 to run through Oct. 4. Featured in this collection of natural fine art nudes are docks and boardwalks, elevated wooden platforms that allow people to travel slightly above the Earth’s physical plane. Photographs taken on seaside and lakeside docks as well as the Orono Bog boardwalk are included.

A wide array of photographic art, large and small, is exhibited throughout the gallery including seascapes and landscapes, abstract tree barks, florals and lighthouses, local harbors and numerous natural fine art nudes. For more information, call 338-6448 or send email to
