The Turtle Gallery in Deer Isle features work by Alix Bacon, Mary Barnes, Anderson Giles and Alice Spencer.

The exhibit opens with a reception from 2 to 6 p.m. Sept. 3 and runs through Oct. 8.

Bacon is showing three series of paintings: “The Scottish Paintings,” “Windows on Maine” and “Climate Change Apocalypse.” Bacon translates her vision by painting the environment, not just the landscape, and reminds us of the raw truth of the impact of climate change on our world.

Barnes is showing mixed-media drawings inspired by the birds of her home and a journey to the Galapagos.

Spencer is showing her hand-printed paper collages. Her work is influenced by textiles from her travels and their integration into culture and everyday life.

Giles joins the Turtle Gallery for his first showing since retiring from 35 years of teaching art and photography at the University of Maine at Presque Isle. The show will include several older works as well as paintings recently completed during his final summer in northern Maine.

A new collection of woodwork from Chris Joyce will also be on display, as well as copies of his new catalog.
