Student and professional photographs are on view and benefit sale at The Art Loft in downtown Rockland.

Rockland — “The Beauty of the Maine Coast” will continue during the month of September at The Art Loft, celebrated with a First Friday Art Walk reception Sept. 1 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the nonprofit community arts center, 385 Main Street, Suite 9 (Thorndike Building).

The exhibition showcases photography of students who have attended photography workshops over the past year with instructor and Art Loft co-founder Paula Apro.

Apro's work also will be on view. All art on display will be available for $150 or less, with all sales directly funding art programs and the prison art project.

Free drinks and snacks will be served during the reception. For more information, call 200-7915.
