ROCKLAND — Maine Coastal Islands Art Gallery holds an art opening Friday, June 10, from 4 to 6 p.m. featuring two environmental artists. The show will be on display through August at the Maine Coastal Islands NWR Visitor Center, 9 Water St.

Jon Luoma of Alna studied traditional painting in China. His show will highlight landscapes and scenes of Maine, coastal and inland, with a few from Canada, Nepal and the Galapagos Islands. He enjoys spending time in the “wildlands” of Maine and beyond.

Kirk M. Rogers of Portland is an accomplished photographer with a portfolio that rivals some of the great naturalist photographers. This show explores the breadth of his talent, including his astrophotography. His images of landscapes, birds and the night sky are further enhanced by his refined print processing and winsome titles.

Refuge Manager Brian Benedict is delighted to welcome Rogers back to the art gallery to highlight his talent and dedication to the refuge. “Kirk Rogers’ exceptional photography has been used in many ways to connect the public with our treasured refuge islands and the seabirds they support. Over many years, Kirk has generously volunteered his time to accompany refuge staff to offshore islands to capture stunning images. Since most of the public will never visit our islands, Kirk’s photos have been used to share the beauty through exhibits in our visitor center, on social media, and at scientific and public presentations.”

The galleries are open Mondays through Fridays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., except holidays, and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. All art sales support both the artists and the friends’ group.
