Spring art show includes unique collections from the community and beyond

ROCKLAND — Maine Coastal Islands Visitor Center unveils its spring art show, Friday, April 5, from 5 to 7 p.m., at 9 Water St., in Rockland. This show includes three unique collections from the local community and beyond.

Kirk Gentalen shares his Midcoast Moments collection. Long-time nature observer and photographer, Gentalen uses the moments captured through his photos to share his appreciation of nature with others. This collection features some of his favorites.

From expert photographer to blooming artists, the Leaps of Imagination collection shares collagraphs created by local youth based on their study of animals.

Finally, the third collection in this show comes from Kay Etheridge, titled Beyond Audubon: Bird Images through the Centuries. The collection highlights how birds have been pictured throughout history and the evolutions therein. From woodcuts to engraved and etched copper plates, the history of bird images extends beyond the well-known Audubon and this collection seeks to highlight just some of them.
