A Good Spring Fling, under the red roof

Apr 19, 2017
Michael Good Gallery relaunches in May in Rockport; new installations include pottery by Jemerick, paintings by Jerri Finch and sculpture by Michael Good.

Rockport — Michael Good Gallery is re-launching Monday, May 1, with a special Spring Fling-for-Less week. The gallery, relocated to its roots at 325 Commercial St./Route 1, will celebrate the re-launch with a curated selection of works by gallery artists.

This special installation (at reduced prices) will run Monday through Saturday, May 1 through 6, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The re-launched Michael Good Gallery will be able to show even more fine craft and art, said gallery manager Avi Good. During the winter, the space underwent significant interior and exterior renovations. The result is three times the light-filled spaces. The Spring Fling-for-Less kickoff to the opening of the season is aimed to assist with Mother’s Day, graduations, anniversaries and wedding gift-giving.

“As the artistic profile of the Midcoast region escalates, we are excited to keep pace. Now … under the same red metal roof as our Michael Good Design Studio, the gallery can offer so much more to our community including workshops, speakers and nonprofit fundraisers,” said Avi Good. “It’s a big year, and we have big plans!”

Gallery artists whose work is featured include Chavent, Maine Blankets, Leslie Thompson and others. Designer jewelry, works on paper, fine porcelain and other creations well-suited for seasonal gift giving have been chosen.

The newly reworked location has extensive grounds for large-scale sculptures, expanded parking and lawns for outdoor events. In coming weeks, Michael Good Gallery will unveil plans for several solo shows, an extensive display of Michael Good anticlastic sculpture, a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity and other special events.
