Rockland — Asymmetrick Arts, David Scriven Crowley Gallery and 407 Studios are joining together to host a free holiday celebration in the entire downtown building at 405, 407, and 409 Main St. Friday, Dec. 14 from 5 to 8. This is a family event that will include art activities, exhibits, refreshments and open studios.

Included in the art exhibits will be paintings, drawings, photography and mixed media. The upstairs Mid-Coast Community Darkroom will feature a photography exhibit by current students in the after-school program. Other activities include face painting, holiday music and making holiday photograms in the darkroom.

Asymmetrick Arts and David Scriven Crowley Gallery are both on the street level of the building and will be hosting gallery exhibits and holiday fun and cheer. David Scriven Crowley has been making art for more than 40 years and is the recipient of many awards and prizes. His work is included in private, corporate and museum collections. Asymmetrick Arts will be exhibiting selected works as part of its “Winter Show.” In addition, Asymmetrick will offer holiday-themed refreshments and contests.

Also on the second floor is 407 Studios, which will offer open studios by printmaker and painter Lois Anne, craftsman Jim Reitz and photographers Dee Peppe and Nicole Fuller. Sal Levi is exhibiting "You Remind Me of Where I come From," an experiential installation that looks at value in society. It is a large-scale multimedia piece made from recycled materials.
