Maine Coastal Islands Gallery offers new work

Sep 01, 2018
Libbey Seigars’ “Dragonfly Platter” is part of the nature-inspired work of Whitefield Pottery.

Rockland — The public is invited to an opening art reception for artists who are sharing their experiences with the natural world through a variety of media Friday, Sept. 7, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center and Art Gallery, 9 Water St.

Libbey Seigars of Whitefield Pottery will exhibit her handcrafted tableware, each piece individually created and decorated. She works in earthenware clay, primarily doing thrown work. The designs are inspired by nature, and her work reflects the Japanese influence of her studies and apprenticeships in Vermont and Japan.

The Women Painters of Midcoast Maine & Friends is a local group of dedicated artists who have come together to support and encourage each other as creators of art. Their show, “Close to Nature,” is inspired by and focused on the landscapes and nature of coastal Maine.

The show will continue through November at the visitor center and art gallery, located in the South End. For more information, call 594-0600, ext. 5.
