River Arts, located at 36 Elm Street in Damariscotta, is hosting the juried show “Land and Sea” through July 3.

The exhibition, featuring works selected by contemporary artist Jane Dahmen, includes 97 pieces by 82 artists, all inspired by nature and interpreted in styles from realism to abstraction.

After operating for several years as an all-volunteer organization, River Arts recently hired a gallery manager, Laurel Dodge. A naturalist and artist, Dodge offers glimpses into nature through photography. She was an instructor at the zoo in Brooklyn, New York, and at several nature centers, has written and illustrated a how-to book on teaching children about nature, and has offered workshops on how to keep a naturalist’s sketchbook.

Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call 563-6868 or visit riverartsme.org.
