PORTLAND – Gallery 37-A hosts a new exhibition by South Portland artist Karen Gelardi, opening Friday.

“In the Outside” is an installation that configures and recombines Gelardi’s work across a variety of media, including drawing, painting and printmaking.

Gelardi studied painting at Rhode Island School of Design, and has been influenced by the manufacturing processes of her family’s plastics factory in Biddeford.

In her work, Gelardi explores ideas about resiliency, adaptation and nature.

Gallery 37-A is at 37-A Wharf St., Portland, in the Old Port. Regular gallery hours are noon to 6 p.m. Thursday to Monday.

“In the Outside” will open this week with a reception during the First Friday Art Walk from 6 to 10 p.m. The show is on view through Feb. 27.
