Rockland — Art Space Gallery, 342 Main St., invites everyone to an opening reception Friday, Sept. 5, from 5 to 8 p.m. Pam Hetherly, Lydia Kaeyer, Laura Max, Hannah Nelsbach, will showcase their work in the front room of the gallery for the entire month of September.

Art Space features works by 19 artists of various media and genres, and many of the gallery artists will be in attendance to share stories about their work.  For more information about the artists’ work and gallery, visit artspacemaine.com.

Hetherly paints with oils, utilizing a painting knife to encourage large simple forms and bold gestures. Her interest now is in capturing big shapes and bold gestures in every painting.

Kaeyer, a watercolor painter, will be showing her newest collection of work featuring Maine waterfront scenes, dories, workboats and windjammers — work that depicts the true grit that makes Maine special.

Max is working with metals — specifically steel and copper — for this show. The material continues to fascinate her, from how it moves with each hammer blow to the textures and shine of the surface that can offer a sense of movement and life. Nelsbach, loves to paint human forms. For this exhibition, her theme is Hobbies for Men, which include “The Old Timer Freak,” “The Hunter,” “The Golfer,” “The Angler” and “The Farmer.”

Art Space Gallery is located across from the Strand Theatre. September hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, Fridays to 8 p.m.
