Perimeter Gallery will open its second Belfast venue for “Seesaw,” in which Maine artists Anna Hepler and Karen Gelardi explore the parallels and overlap in work that shares an interest in crossing the boundaries between two and three dimensions.

An opening reception is scheduled for 6-8 p.m. Thursday, June 8, at the gallery in Chase’s Daily, 96 Main St., Belfast. The exhibit wil be on view through Aug. 6.

At Perimeter, Hepler’s sculptures of ceramic and plywood and Gelardi’s painted paper collages and poly tarp banners present a rich and intertwined language of form, surface and process. In addition to Perimeter Gallery, “Seesaw” is on view at two galleries at Waterfall Arts.

Hepler resides in Eastport. She has taught at Bowdoin and the University of Southern Maine. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, including solo exhibitions at the Portland Museum of Art and the Center for Maine Contemporary Art. Her work is in the collections of the National Gallery of Art, Tate Gallery in London, The Portland Museum, and the DeCordova Museum.

Gelardi lives and works in South Portland. She received a BFA in painting from Rhode Island School of Design, and has exhibited widely, including SPACE Gallery in Portland, Coleman Burke and Curator Galleries in New York, and a solo show at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art.

Gallery hours are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday. For more information, call 338-0555.
