New Era Gallery, 60 Main St., in will open its mid-summer show Saturday, July 16, featuring work by Andrew Anderson-Bell, Charlotte Nekola, Adam Osgood and Cristy West. A panel discussion with the artists will be held in the Windy Way Barn at 4:30 p.m., with an opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m.

Anderson-Bell’s love of the water, be it a bright summer day on the Thorofare or dusk on a coastal marsh, is apparent in his pastel landscapes. Nekola is a poet who, in her photographic work, assembles a story using words and images. Osgood’s contemporary photography exhibit in the Windy Way Barn will focus on works that condense time, altering our understanding of familiar places. West’s abstract mixed media works include richly layered paints and drawing.

The gallery will host a reading by Nekola from her recently published book of poetry, “Della Who,” Sunday, July 17, at 7 p.m. in the Windy Way Barn.

The exhibition will run through Aug. 3. Summer gallery hours are Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, call 863-9351 or visit
