“NINE,” the new exhibit at Lincolnville Fine Art Gallery, will go on view Wednesday, Sept. 21, to run through Oct. 11. The public is invited to attend a reception to meet the artists Saturday, Oct. 1, from 3 to 5 p.m.

The “NINE” artists are Deb Vendetti of Hope; Dorie Klein of Camden; Elisabeth Goodridge, Appleton; Jane Gilbert of Orland; Janelle Delicata of Prospect; Liv Kristin Robinson of Belfast; Lois Anne and Marjorie Strauss of Rockland; and Randy Fein of Lincolnville.

The artists, all long-time Maine residents, are known in the Maine art world and beyond. With decades-long bonds of art, mutual respect and friendship, they have come together to share their work, find common ground and support, and to explore and create exhibition opportunities. Many of the “NINE” artists were past members of Artfellows in Belfast and 407 in Rockland.

Lincolnville Fine Art Gallery, 2522 Atlantic Highway/Route 1 at Lincolnville Beach, is open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call the gallery at 592-2984 or visit lincolnvillefineartgallery.com.
