PicassoWhat, a new gallery and member of Arts in Rockland, will open its next group show, “Artistic Differences,” with a public reception Friday, July 5, during the 5 to 8 p.m. First Friday Art Walk. Live music will be provided by Waldoboro favorite The Ale House String Band featuring Oren Robinson on guitar, Brian Dunn on mandolin, and April Reed-Cox on violoncello.

The exhibit will include two- and three-dimensional work by several Maine artists, as well as representatives from many other American towns and cities. Gallery co-owner Lori Schafer said the new show includes emerging artists “we’ve discovered in our own backyard, which is to say, our NEW backyard.” She added that PicassoWhat appreciates all the warmth and encouragement it has been shown by so many members of the community.

Artists will include Mainers Andrew Speed, Tom Higbee and Marc Cutonilli; Samuel Foote of Nevada; Rachel Bingaman of Maryland; and Ava Avadon of Ohio, among others. The July group show will include painting, drawing, sculpture and more.

PicassoWhat is located on the second floor of 328 Main St., above the Black Parrot and FOG Bar & Café, in Studio 201. It is open Wednesdays through Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; and Sundays from noon to 3 p.m. For more information, visit the gallery’s Facebook page; email picassowhat@gmail.com; or call 593-8109.
