Archipelago, the Island Institute’s store and gallery at 386 Main Street, Rockland, will host an artists’ reception from 5 to 8 p.m., Friday, August 2, during Rockland’s First Friday Art Walk. The reception will open the new summer gallery show “King Tide,” to celebrate Maine’s high season.

“King Tide” showcases the work of four Maine women, each using different mediums and styles to depict both real and inspired landscapes around Maine. The featured artists include Wendy Newcomb of Sebago (oil, gouache, and acrylic paintings), Holly Berry of Waldoboro (linocut prints), Molly Mains of Bridgton (printmaking and multimedia), and Marguerite Lawler of Portland (oil paintings). Paintings by Henry Isaacs will also be highlighted in the show.

The “King Tide” exhibition will be on display through September 29; in addition to the opening reception, the public is also invited to stop in to Archipelago’s Main Street location during the First Friday Art Walk on September 6 to celebrate the show, enjoy snacks and beverages, and see all of the pieces.

The Archipelago Fine Arts Gallery features artists who work with natural, coastal, and working waterfront themes inspired by living and creating art in Maine. Both the store and gallery are open seven days a week. To learn more about the artists and work featured in “King Tide,” visit the Archipelago page on Facebook.
