Rockland — There will be an opening reception for three local artists who are sharing their experiences with the natural world through a variety of art media Friday, Sept. 1, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center and Art Gallery, 9 Water St.

Gordon Bok of Camden is both an accomplished songwriter and woodcarver. He began relief carving when he inherited his mother’s carving tools. His art reflects his attraction to boats and people; many carvings are about the local fisheries.

Lois Anne, poet and artist, has maintained a studio in Rockland since the early 1980s, working with a variety of media. She will share her paintings and mixed media that reflect aspects of the natural world.

Julie Cyr of Belfast just received People’s Choice in the Maine Coastal Islands Juried Art Show for her red fox oil on wood. She paints the landscapes, barns and wildlife that she experiences daily along the Midcoast.

Regular hours at the visitor center and art gallery are weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information, call 594-0600, ext. 5.
