Art Space Gallery invites everyone to attend an opening reception of new works Friday, Sept. 2 from 5 to 8 p.m. Through the month of September, the entry room will feature works across a variety of artistic media created by Laurie Lofman Bellmore, Pricilla (Penny) Markley, Kay Sullivan and Marjorie Walsh.  Fifteen additional member artists’ works fill the balance of the gallery.

Bellmore divides her artistic time between Maine coast photography, fine hand-crafted jewelry and watercolor painting. An avid outdoorswoman, Markley creates landscapes and seascapes, often on location; most recently, acrylic is her medium of choice. Kay Sullivan is a newcomer to Art Space Gallery, and her paintings of nature achieve their strong textural quality in part from her use of sanded paper. Pottery and other clay forms are Walsh’s artistic expressions, some hand-built and others created by wheel.

Gallery hours are Mondays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays. For more information on the artists, call 594-8784 or visit Art Space Gallery is located at 342 Main St., across from the Strand Theatre.
