DAMARISCOTTA — River Arts plans to present “Wild Things” in a show juried by art consultant Tammy Ackerman, former founder and executive director of Engine in Biddeford.

The gallery invites the public to the artists’ reception, scheduled for 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 14, at 36 Elm St.

From 114 submitting artists, 70 artists were selected to exhibit works in “Wild Things.” Answering the call to create something wild, River Arts’ artists have delivered surprising, exhilarating and imaginative interpretations in their works, according to a news release from the gallery.

Wild creatures of all sorts appear along with captivating natural scenery. Abstractions expand the show with personal expressions of the meaning of wild. In an especially colorful show, there are also works that quietly communicate the grace of wildness, the gallery notes.

“Wild Things” runs May 10 through June 11.

Isabella Corwin’s solo show, “Big Girls,” continues in the River Room. Corwin will be greeting visitors during the Saturday reception. Her enamel jewelry and grand paintings will be on display through May 18.

Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. River Arts continues to require masks for entry to the gallery.
