Watercolor and pencil artist Wally Schweighauser, who lived for many years in Waldoboro, and two other Nobleboro artists will present a joint exhibition of their work at River Arts Gallery in the Hunt Business Center, Route 1. “Form and Flow” will open Thursday, July 4, to run though July 17. The public is invited to an opening reception n Friday, July 5, from 5 to 7 p.m.

In addition to Schweighauser, “Form and Flow” features work by ceramic artist Tom Fontaine and photographer Leon Vanella. Their diverse studies of forms and light have many elements in common and compliment each other in surprising ways.

Schweighauser, who turns 101 in September, has exhibited in galleries in Maine and Massachusetts; and her works are in private collections in both the United States and in Europe. Last year, she celebrated her 100th birthday with a solo exhibition at River Arts.

Fontaine currently works in sculptural porcelain vessels. A potter for more than 40 years working primarily with coil and slab-constructed clay vessels, he lived and worked in California, exhibiting his work throughout the West, before moving to Maine in 2001. He is selective about exhibiting his work, preferring to devote his time to exploring the forms and textures. He is sharing a new body of work.

Vanella is a versatile photographer with a keen eye for the natural world's beauty and intricacy. He first took an interest in photography several years ago, while still a student in California, but did not begin showing his work publicly until moving to Maine.
