"From the Depths," a water-themed abstract small group show, will close during the First Friday Art Walk Oct. 7 from 5 to 8 p.m. at 25 Oak Gallery, 25 Oak St.

As part of the show’s finale, 25 Oak Gallery will host a live music concert by cellist Robin Lane from 6 to 6:30 p.m. Lane will play throughout the night, and the community is invited to join the artists for wine, music and art.

Lane started playing cello at 7; by age 10, he was studying privately through the University of Hartford. He studied music theory, social thought and political economy at the University of Massachusetts Amherst before deciding to devote himself to a private, full-time music education. Lane performs classical and contemporary works for private events and weddings throughout the Midcoast; serves as a teaching assistant for Midcoast Music Academy school programs and camps; and records, engineers and produces his music, along with the music of a growing number of local musicians, from his home studio in Rockland.

“From the Depths” explores the theme of water, as well as the inner journey of abstract painters who work intuitively “from the depths.” The show of Midcoast artists features Katherine Aimone and Steven Aimone of Rockland, Krisanne Baker of Waldoboro and Ingrid Ellison of Camden.

Baker’s work reflects the ever-changing patterns of water; Ellison’s geometric and organic work merges the abstract and references to the actual; Katherine Aimone’s plunges viewers into the deep recesses of the subconscious and the ethereal; and Steven Aimone’s paintings elicit a feeling of fragility and vulnerability, reflecting his thoughts on life and on painting.

The show opened Sept. 2 and may be seen Fridays and Saturdays through Oct. 1, from 2 to 6 p.m., then concluding with the October art walk. For more information, call 242-5833.
