Rockland — "Etudes au Naturel," an exhibition of photography by David Aimone and Florin Ion Firimita, will open with a gala 5 to 8 p.m. First Friday Art Walk reception July 7 at 25 Oak Gallery, the occasional gallery at 25 Oak St.

The show offers more than 50 photographs, and the opening reception will have music by Kayla Joe and catering by Mary Jo Mathieson of Maine Cottage Design. An artist’s talk and some other surprises are planned for the celebratory evening.

The showcases two artists whose work complements each other. Firimita's work has appeared in France, Great Britain and in the United States. “The Art of Leaving,” a 2003 film about his art and life, was the official selection of seven international film festivals including those in Santa Fe, Durango, New York, Chicago and Montreal’s 23rd Festival International du Film Sur L’Art. His first novel, “Reliquary,” is scheduled to be published this year.

Aimone's work has appeared in numerous shows across the U.S. and Europe; he was a founder of the Monhegan Photo Festival, which had a show last year at 25 Oak Gallery. His work ranges from figure to landscape, and he uses both old and new technologies in blurring the line between fine art and photography.

"Etudes au Naturel" will continue 5 to 8 p.m. Fridays and noon to 8 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays through July 23. For more information, visit the 25 Oak Facebook page.
