“Civilized Nature,” the fourth show of the 2015 season at the Stable Gallery, will open with a reception at at 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 21, at the gallery, 26 Water St., Damariscotta. The exhibit will be on display from 10 a.m to 5 p.m. daily until Sept. 16. The public is invited to join artists, friends of artists, art collectors and those who appreciate art for the gala reception. Eleven artists will be featured.

Roz Welsh will exhibit her sculpted sewn paintings of natural abstractions as well as her crafted silver jewelry. Hati Modr’s oil paintings concentrate on shadow, light and the slant of the sun in her coastal inspired work, while Bob Thomas aims to reach the viewer with his heavily textured abstract planes. Helene Farrar employs many media and sizes with her colorful pieces and Bernice Rosenthal’s interesting hanging wood sculpted work use both found pieces and carefully carved wood.

The furniture of cabinetmaker Charles Durfee exhibits traditional styles with special attention to color, grain and type of wood. Also working in wood, in a different way, is David Pollock, who creates wooden utensils. Ceramicist Brandon Lutterman creates both sculptural and utilitarian pieces, while the fluid sculpture of Arielle Cousens comes primarily from found metal and wood. New to the Stable Gallery this year is glass blower David Jacobsen. A new media, carefully woven baskets created by Ned Baxter may also be seen this year.

The final Opening of the year will take place Friday, Sept. 18. “Art Harvest 10 plus 4” will begin at 5 p.m.
