“Preservation” is the theme of Sally DeLorme Pedrick’s new show at Tidemark Gallery, running from Tuesday, July 9, through Saturday, Aug. 3. Pedrick will give a brief gallery talk during the opening reception Saturday, July 13, from 5 to 7 p.m.

This group of oils and woodcuts is filled with ideas, metaphors and timely references to the preserving of food, the significance of salt and the use of containers and other kinds of boundaries to maintain things as they are in the moment.

Pedrick is a graduate of the University of Maine, Orono, who continued her education at Northwestern University, Loyola University and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she studied with Chairman of Fine Arts Paul Wieghardt, a student of Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky at the Bauhaus in Dessau, Germany. With a lively career as an artist, gallerist, educator and curator in Maine, Illinois and beyond, she has earned references in “Art in America, Guide to Museums, Galleries, Artists”; “Who’s Who”; and “Who’s Who of American Women.”

Tidemark Gallery is located in the village at 902 Main St./Route 220. Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 832-5109 or visit tidemarkgallery.com.
