The Center for Maine Contemporary Art in Rockland has a new exhibit, called “Shelter (Earth, House, Body, Spirit),” which will be on view at cmcanow.org through February 20.

Guest curators Annika Earley and Tessa Greene O’Brien, co-directors of Able Baker Contemporary in Portland, selected artists showing work from more than 150 submissions by Maine-connected artists. In a news release, they said, “Some artists offer shelter by grounding the viewer in the underbrush; some use rich textures to explore the care, tenderness and occasional exhaustion that bodily shelters can offer to the self and others; and some look deeply inward toward the spirit as a reprieve. This collection of works shows how multifaceted the idea of shelter can be: comforting, powerful, fallible, tender, exhausting and essential.”

Local artists included in the exhibit are Kenny Cole, Eleanor Conover and Whitney River.
