“Medallions of Migration” by Holly Berry.

WALDOBORO — The Waldo Theatre, 916 Main St., launches its gallery space with a group art show, “Creatures of Maine.” A public reception for this free exhibition is Wednesday, July 7, from 4 to 7 p.m.

Thirteen Maine artists present 40 images of Maine creatures. These feature a wide range of media: oil, watercolor, acrylic, pastel, monotype, woodcut, ink, linocut, and gouache on used tea bags. The artists include Chris Augusta and Holly Berry from Waldoboro, Pam Cabanas from Friendship, Lucia deLeiris from Waltham, Mass., Linda Gallion from Jefferson, Sandy Griffin from Edgecomb, Dick Koubek and Mary Sue Weeks from Bremen, Katie Lee from Nobleboro, Stephanie Muri and David Peloquin from Windsor, and Patty Parks and Barbara Vanderbilt from Whitefield.

The show is curated by Chris Augusta and Dick Koubek. Inspiration for the exhibition is reflected in a quote from William Blake: “How do you know but that ev’ry Bird that cuts the airy way, Is an immense world of delight….”

Regular Waldo Theatre Gallery hours are Wednesdays from 4 to 6 p.m., July 14 through Aug 25. Many of the works are for sale with a portion of sales benefiting The Waldo. Unvaccinated visitors are asked to wear masks. If you are interested in volunteering in the Waldo Gallery this summer, email info@thewaldotheatre.org.
