WATERVILLE — Ebb + Flow: Reflections on the Kennebec River, will open Wednesday, Aug. 1, at Common Street Arts, 93 Main St. Members of these organizations were invited to participate in the exhibition by submitting works relating to the Kennebec River and the vital role it has played for centuries throughout the communities of Skowhegan, Waterville and Hallowell.

The opening reception will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 2, at the gallery.

The exhibition explores the Kennebec River as a natural resource that has served as a defining feature of the towns and cities that surround it. This waterway has sustained communities for generations through its role in supporting Maine’s transportation, logging, forestry, textile and paper industries, as well as its more leisurely role in providing and sustaining recreational pursuits including boating, fishing and swimming. The exhibition will reflect the significance of the Kennebec River and its importance as a unique natural feature that has shaped the history of the central Maine region.

The exhibit will be hosted by Waterville Creates!, in partnership with members of the Waterville Area Art Society, the Harlow Gallery, Common Street Arts and the Wesserunsett Arts Council.

Gallery hours are noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.
