Rockland — Dowling Walsh Gallery, 365 Main St., will host three exhibitions in the month of September, showcasing the work of Shawn Fields, Elizabeth Fox and Vito Desalvo. The Fields and Fox exhibitions will open Friday, Sept. 1, with a 5 to 8 p.m. reception in conjunction with Arts In Rockland’s First Friday Art Walk. Desalvo's opening reception is Friday, Sept. 8, from 5 to 8 p.m.

Fields’ work in this exhibition is about facing the unknown with a sense of adventure and joyful expectation. He studied painting at the School of Visual Art in New York City; and received an MFA from the New York Academy in 2004.

Fox’s ​VePop Dreamland series derives its title from Ve for Venus, Pop for pop diva and Dreamland for dreamlike landscapes in which these spirits and forms live. This show depicts the need for goddesses as idols, role models and heroes. Fox, who lives in Standish, has exhibited her work in New York City, New Orleans, San Francisco, Miami, Washington, D.C., Houston, the Netherlands and at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art in Maine.

Dowling Walsh Gallery is located directly across from the Farnsworth Art Museum. Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and by appointment Sundays and Mondays. For more information, visit or call 596-0084.
