The exhibition “It’s a Wrap!” comes to the Roby King Gallery in March.

Mark Norrander will conclude his painting career with a retrospective exhibition at the Winslow gallery.

Working in egg tempera, Norrander revived this 15th century medium to paint contemporary landscapes. He explored realism, stylized representation and abstraction, and the shapes created from his intricate layered brushstrokes are often soft edged and dreamlike.

“Curiosity caused me to teach myself to paint in egg tempera,” the artist recalled. “Curiosity leads me from one painting to the next…most of them come from how I remember a place, focusing more on how it felt than how it actually looked.”

Also at the gallery this month, etchings by Mary N. Balcomb.

Roby King Gallery represents the art estate of the late Silverdale etching artist, who passed away in 2013, in this not-to-be-missed final exhibition. Because of her drawing abilities, the intaglio method (particularly line etching) carried a particular fascination for her. Her range of subject matter include architecture, animals, the human figure, trees, flowers, birds and insects.

An opening reception is planned for 6 to 8 p.m. during First Friday on Friday, March 1.

The gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and from noon to 4 p.n. Sunday.

Roby King Gallery is at 176 Winslow Way East.
