North End’s NoRo open for art walk

Jul 02, 2017
“Takbeerat” is a mixed media work by Cynthia Motian McGuirl at Rockland’s NoRo Gallery. The July show combines hand weaving, prints, metal work, fine craft furniture, sculpture and painting.

Rockland — NoRo Gallery will be open for the First Friday Art Walk, July 7, from 5 to 7 p.m. The gallery, set in a former church at 16 Brewster St., is exhibiting the work of local artists Cynthia Motian McGuirl, Libby Schrum, Peter Davis and Annie Bailey.

McGuirl of Thomaston is a teaching artist whose current work explores the connections between spirituality, world religions and meditation through the story of her Armenian Grandmother, her own personal craft work and the human figure.

Schrum of Camden designs and builds furniture inspired by the simplicity and function of both early American antique furniture and a mid-century modern aesthetic. She is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and a recipient of the prestigious John D. Mineck Furniture Fellowship.

Davis of Rockland works in photography, music and found object sculpture. In all, she said she tries to reflect the world around her “in its fragile yet permanent, frightening yet whimsical truths.”

Bailey of Tenants Harbor is a multi-media artist whose work includes painting, sculpture, time-based storytelling through animation and “crankie" scrolls.

Gallery hours are Thursdays through Saturdays from noon to 6 p.m. The gallery is located at the corner of Cedar and Brewster streets in the former Salvation Army Church; entrance and parking are on Cedar, at the rear of the building.
