ROCKLAND — The Sanctuary Gallery at the Rockland Congregational Church, will reopen with a show by Nancy Glassman and six of her students in the winter class of 2018, Sunday, April 14. A reception with the artist will take place from 11:15 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.
Glassman, a local artist, will be showing not only her watercolor paintings but also works in oil and other media.
She has enjoyed a long relationship with the environment, according to a news release. Her watercolors reflect to delicate nuances of nature, the unfolding of new leaves and tendrils of spring grass.
Glassman’s oil paintings emphasize the strength seen in nature through her use of strong colors that reflect each scene’s power.
The subject matter often dictates which medium she chooses to use.
Glassman is one of the permanent artists in the Caldbeck Gallery in Rockland. She studied art at the University of Pennsylvania with Rackstraw Downes, and with Bernard Pfriem at Sarah Lawrence College.
Her paintings are in many public and private collections, including Colby College, Eastern Maine Medical Center, Waldo County Hospital, and Portland High School.
The gallery is on the second floor of the church and is handicap accessible. Call 594-8656 to confirm gallery hours.
The show will continue until Sunday, May 12.
