A group show of drawings will be exhibited at Rougette Gallery in a show opening during the First Friday Arts In Rockland (AIR) art walk Sept. 3 and running through Sept. 24.

The show includes the art of Cushing native Mike Farley, which is being held over for another month. Farley’s photography, drawings and painted cut paper work are inspired by his interest in the Rain Forest and growing up on the coast of Maine. Farley will be at the First Friday artist reception from 5 to 8 p.m.

The show also includes new drawings by  another Mainer, A.M. Haines. In addition to drawing, Haines is a musician, singer, poet and performance artist who has exhibited or performed in New York, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Las Vegas, Philadelphia and San Francisco.

The drawings of British outsider artist Ian Pyper also will be a part of the group show.    Pyper’s art has been featured in Raw Magazine and several other international outsider art periodicals. His work has been has exhibited throughout Europe and Japan, as well as the United States and Canada. The French writer and publisher Joe Ryczko coined the term Future Primitive or Paleolithique Moderne to describe Pyper drawings.
