Rougette Gallery’s summer show of watercolors of Katharine Cartwright, NWS, will re-open Friday, Aug. 2, with a whole new show of works from her Laws of Nature series.

Cartwright lives and works in Spruce Head, and her Laws of Nature watercolors have won top national awards. Her identity as an artist can be found at the intersection of the visual arts and the natural sciences; she also has won awards for her scientific research. The Laws of Nature melds these two disciplines via aesthetic interpretations of the physical laws that govern our universe.

The “Mechanical Mindscapes” show runs through Sept. 27. Gallery hours are Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; contact the gallery for other hours at 596-7979 or visit The gallery is located upstairs at 340 Main St.
