ROCKPORT — Michael Good Gallery, 325 Commercial St., is proud to hold its 20th annual Summer Celebration! event on Friday, Aug. 16, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Complimentary refreshments and live music from jazz trio The Extension Chords will set the scene for a brilliant display of pieces by Katharine A. Cartwright, presenting works from her watercolor series, "The Laws of Nature." The opening is free and open to the public.

“It is with such pleasure that we are able to highlight Katharine’s work at our annual party this year. The pieces are exceptional, and Katherine herself is brilliant and endlessly interesting,” said Avi Good, general manager of Michael Good. “We are honored to present her work and thrilled that attendees will have a chance to meet her at the opening.”

Cartwright brilliantly inhabits two worlds: professional artist and professional scientist. She earned her first degrees in fine arts from Kutztown University, The College of Charleston, and The Maryland Institute College of Art. She then returned to school in her early forties, receiving a BA in Geology followed by an MS in Earth Sciences.

Cartwright moved to Spruce Head, and in 2010, embarked on a series of watercolors, culminating in "The Laws of Nature" series, including 33 pieces, each representing a specific physical law that Katharine has adeptly translated into an abstract aesthetic representation.

Cartwright has immersed herself in the community teaching workshops, writing columns for the newspaper, and participating regularly in exhibitions. She recently lead a team of students to design and implement a large scale mural for the new Midcoast School of Technology building in Rockland.

The exhibition at Michael Good Gallery will run through September and features eight pieces from the series, with the rest currently on display this summer at The State House in Augusta, at a show sponsored by The Maine Arts Commission.

Additionally, the Summer Celebration! will introduce new works by gallery artists William Jackson, Gil Coyle and Linda Ely, as well as introduce two new artists to the gallery — Sharon Murray and Bill Howe.
