"I always try to do something related to the issue of the day," said Williamson, who curated the "Labor" show. "We're not afraid to show work that some might find disturbing. It's not always pretty."

She called attention to a large drawing by Barr, a recent graduate of Maine College of Art. Titled "Robert," the drawing portrays a homeless person that Barr befriended in Portland. It is one in a series of drawings that Barr created, and it caught Williamson's attention as soon as she saw it. She invited Barr to exhibit in this show about labor, "Because we're all one bad investment from walking hand-in-hand with Robert."

Richard Boyd Art Gallery, 15 Epps St., Peaks Island, Portland. 10 to 5 p.m. daily through October, then weekends and first Fridays in November and December. 712-1097; richardboydartgallery.com
