Summer continues to sizzle on the second floor of 328 Main St., where PicassoWhat Gallery is mounting a small show-in-a-show of recent small-scale paintings by Floridian surrealist S.M. Hutcheson.

In response to public support for the gallery’s eclectic mix of affordable contemporary American painting, works on paper, photography and more, this spontaneous show of Hutcheson’s work was designed to introduce yet another new talent to the Midcoast. This pop-up show will be on view in the gallery through Sept. 8.

Hutcheson was trained as a muralist cites anthropology as one of her passions. After years of painting for others, she is committed to working in a much more personal manner. Hutcheson works in acrylic on canvas, and her titles convey a distinctive perspective on the human experience and a sense of humor mixed with the macabre.

Also featured late season as part of a four-person show are Nikki Galapon's works on paper and canvas, affordably priced to reflect the gallery's commitment to showcasing accessible art; and work by Rebecca Rouse, "The Owl Painter." Hours are Wednesdays through Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, visit the gallery’s Facebook page; email; or call 593-8109.
