Tours, yoga, grant for CMCA

Jul 08, 2017
Weekday visitors can enjoy a free-with-admission tour of the exhibits at Rockland’s Center for Maine Contemporary Art this summer.

Rockland — Summer is in full swing and the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, 21 Winter St., has added daily and weekly events for July and August.

Exhibition tours

CMCA offers daily guided tours of the current exhibitions every weekday at 11 a.m. Visitors can join museum staff for a closer inside look at the exhibitions on view, currently “John Walker | From Seal Point,” “Jenny Brillhart + Sara Stites | Temporality” and “William Wegman | Reel to Real.” Tours are approximately 30 minutes long and are free with admission.

Yoga Flow

On Thursdays, CMCA offer a refreshing and relaxing yoga practice at 5:30 p.m. in the galleries or open courtyard. Led by Lucy Spalding of Yoga Flow, this one-hour vinyasa-style class begins with a few rounds of flowing movement to warm up the body and connect participants to their breath. It finishes with longer holds and stretches to relax and rejuvenate the senses.

Participants are asked to bring a yoga mat and wear comfortable layers to move in. Sessions are by donation and are open to the public. No prior yoga experience is necessary; drop-ins are welcome.

Grant for Frederick show

The Maine Office of Tourism awarded seven Tourism Enterprise Marketing Grant awards in its spring round, including $10,000 for the Center for Maine Contemporary Art. The funding will support a fall radio broadcast campaign in the Boston and New England Market promoting the "Linden Frederick: Night Stories" exhibit, a show of new work by the Belfast artist that opens Aug. 19.
