KINGFIELD — The Stadler Gallery will conclude this year’s summer cycle with exhibitions of new works by Abby Shahn of Solon and large photographs by Alice Wilkinson of Deer Isle. Both will be on view from Aug. 29 through Sept. 18.

“New Paintings, etc” will show the many projects Shahn has been working on during the past two years. Large paintings of knots offer her version of the yellow ribbons seen everywhere and go back to an old fascination with drawing knots and weaving. Small paintings represent or suggest faces, expressing Shahn’s fantasy of a wall of paintings staring back at the viewer.

Also as part of “New Paintings, etc,” there will be pottery made in collaboration with Amber Lambke that Shahn painted, plus a series of imaginary globes or worlds.

Wilkinson finds stimulation in the surprising beauty of her surroundings, while vague reminiscence triggers her curiosity. None of the photos in her “Mostly Outside” show are staged or posed. As she puts it: “What is on the wall is as close as it can be to what I saw through the lens.”

Wilkinson invited her husband, John Wilkinson, to share her space, and several of his sculptures will be on view.

There will be a reception for the artists from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 29.

The Stadler Gallery is open daily from noon to 4 p.m. and by appointment. For more information, visit
