Midcoast artists ‘Think Spring’

Mar 14, 2017
Joyanna Bernardo of Rockport offers a vision of spring to the new River Arts juried exhibition.

Damariscotta — River Arts on Route 1 invites the public to the opening celebration of its newest exhibition, "Think Spring," Friday, March 17, from 5 to 7 p.m.

"Think Spring" promises to be a breath of fresh air on the tail of a blizzard. The gallery is filled with springtime imagery of whimsy — blooming flowers, baseball, garden paths and some of the best looking fish in town. This show is full of fun and imaginative interpretations of spring.

Juror for this exhibition is Andres Verzosa, founder of Portland’s First Friday Art Walk, a contributing arts columnist and reviewer for Art New England and most commonly associated with Aucocisco Galleries in Portland, which he owned and directed. Co-chairman of the Bernard Langlais Leadership Team, Verzosa is an integral part of the Maine art landscape.

Midcoast artists whose work appears in "Think Spring" include Tania Amazeen-Jones and Lois Hill of Washington; Roberta Bauman, Colleen Gleason, Jannetta Jennings and Jeanette Phillipps of Rockland; Joyanna Bernardo of Rockport; Bruce Ian of Northport; Jean Byrd and Liz Donald of Camden; Sandi Cirillo of Searsport; Kathy Felch of Union; Roberta Goschke and Joyce Steel of Waldoboro; Paula Horton of Warren; Paul Karlsson of St. George; Petrea Noyes of Lincolnville; Jim Nyce of Cushing; Patricia “DiTa” Ondek of Friendship; and Kathi Peters of Morrill.

The exhibition will run through April 9. River Arts is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The full 2017 main gallery exhibition schedule is available online at riverartsme.org, as well as a schedule of West Gallery shows.
