Artists open exhibits in Rockland gallery

Three artists are opening exhibits at the Dowling Walsh Gallery in Rockland Friday.

Richard Vickerson of Prince Edward Island will be displaying watercolor paintings on paper — sharp, photo-like landscapes with farm animals and country houses.

James Dodds of Essex, England, paints in oil on linen and canvas. For Dodds, a former apprentice shipwright, the focus is boats. “Stern of a Lifeboat,” “North Norfolk Crab Boat,” and “Building a Grand Lake Canoe” are only a few of the detailed paintings in the collection.

Stephen Hodecker of New Hampshire creates art in several media: egg tempera, oil, watercolor and pastel. He focuses on rural New England landscapes and seascapes.

The opening reception for both artists will be from 5-8 p.m.
