HINCKLEY — The L.C. Bates Museum’s summer exhibition “Transitions” is set to open at 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 11, and run through October at 14 Easler Road.

“Museum of Unnatural History,” oil painting by Jeff Ackerman. Submitted photo

The exhibit explores natural processes and is about transitions between life and death, night and day, seed and plant, egg and animal. As the seasons pass, the colors in the landscape mutate, snow melts and the streams swell, fish swim upstream and birds migrate. As organic matter rots, fungi and mold grow, and death begets more life, according to a news release from Deborah Staber at the museum.

The exhibition offers the works of artists who live in Maine or have connections to the state and work in a range of media, from pencil drawings to collage, painting to printmaking, and from photography to digital media.
