ROCKLAND — “Local Color: An Almanac of Maine Painting,” a solo exhibit of 60 new paintings by Sarah Faragher, is to be on display through June 29 at Landing Gallery, 409 Main St.

Faragher is a 1990 graduate of Colby College, magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa. Her work was included in “Art of Acadia” by David Little and Carl Little, published in 2016 by Down East Books. She was an artist-in-residence at Acadia National Park and the Weir Farm National Historic Site in Wilton, Connecticut, and has been invited numerous times to participate in Art Week on Great Spruce Head Island.

“My paintings are memoirs of my experiences with nature. Through painting I participate in the landscape, recognize transcendent moments in nature, honor the integrity of natural forms, and describe where my heart lives. I often feel as if the places I paint have commissioned me to tell their autobiographies, at the same time that I tell my own,” said Faragher, according to a news release from the gallery.

Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, closed Monday and Tuesday. For more information, call 207-239-1223 or find the gallery of Facebook.
