New Era Gallery’s late summer show will open Saturday, Aug. 6, with an artist’s talk at 4:30 p.m. and reception from 5 to 7 p.m. The Main Street gallery will feature the work of photographer Joel Greenberg; painters Charles Miller and Herb Parsons; and sculptor and printmaker Kitty Wales. Rich Entel’s “Cardboard Menagerie” will be featured in the Windy Way Barn.

Greenberg’s color and black-and-white photos take inspiration from distant views across water and from microcosmic textures in the natural world. Miller and Parsons both work in oils; Miller’s richly textured abstracts and Parson’s finely tuned representational landscapes respond in different ways to the qualities of weather and light in the islands. Wales’ recent work in clay, prints and drawings focuses on camels and their fabled role in her ongoing work about migration.

Entel’s cubist-inspired animals exhibit was first seen in Portland at the Jewish Cultural Center and since has traveled to museums in Florida and New Hampshire. This installation will be the first to include prints as well as the sculpture. As a part of the exhibition, cellist Eugene Friesen will perform original music inspired by the animals on Aug. 11; contact the gallery for details regarding the performance.

“Late Summer 2016” will run through Aug. 31. 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
