FLOAT, the final exhibition of the Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA)’s summer season, will open to the public on Friday, August 7, with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m., in conjunction with Rockland’s First Friday Art Walk. The exhibition is located at the Bicknell Building, 11 Lime Street, Rockland, CMCA’s temporary home for summer 2015.

FLOAT presents works in a range of media that capture the allure and sensation of being in or on the water, be it the vastness of the ocean or relative sanctuary of an inland stream. Included are works by artists Adam John Manley, Tyler McPhee, Emilie Stark-Menneg, Kitty Wales, and the collective Core 5 Incident.
