ROCKLAND — Come view the selected art for the juried art show on coastal Maine wildlife at the Maine Coastal Islands Art Gallery at the wildlife refuge visitor center, 9 Water St. The "Fins, Feathers & Fur" show attracted exhibitors from coastal Maine, including three students.

The show is a blend of artwork that reflects the beauty and variety of coastal wildlife found here in Maine. Best in Show went to Lori Schafer of Rockland for her mixed media and collage on paper, "Rockland Fox." Violet Cornish of Rockland received Student Best in Show for her clay sculpture, "Crow." People’s Choice went to Roberta Baumann of Rockland for her handmade paper/archival print, "Low Tide, Mussel Shell." Ella Virkala of Spruce Head received Student People’s Choice for her acrylic painting, "Seal & Puffin."

Many of the items are for sale with part of the proceeds supporting the Friends of Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge. You can view the art weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thank you to our juror, Kim Bernard of Rockland, who works nationally on sculptures, installations and encaustics. Next year’s "Fins, Feathers & Fur" Juried Art Show will be July 25. Plan to support the Friends of Maine Coastal Islands NWR with art! For more information, contact
