Art of the Sea galleries has mounted an exhibit of new works by Midcoast Maine’s Ron Frontin that will hang until Columbus Day.

Along with Frontin’s work, the gallery also is showing several Don Stone originals and two of John Stobart’s latest. Of special interest is an exhibit of works by Jamie Wiggin, Frontin’s protégée. Art of the Sea also has at least 100 half hulls and full rigged ship models, from primitive decorative pieces to museum quality cased models, on display at all times.

Art of the Sea is one of the nation’s largest contemporary marine gallery, offering an enormous collection of nautical art from local, national and international artists in all media at its 4,500 square foot gallery. Everyone is invited to visit the 19th-century waterfront building and enjoy the sights and sounds of the ‘keag’s reversing falls; there is always a place to park.

Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., other times by appointment. For more information, call gallery director Joan Woodhull at 594-9396 or, for a preview of the exhibit, visit
