Artist Pam Cabanas will host “Friendship Views 2010,” an open studio event, Friday and Saturday, Aug. 27 and 28 at her Cabanas Studio and Gallery, 372 Waldoboro Road/Route 220. Hours will be noon to 6 p.m. both days.

Cabanas’ newest work will be spotlighted. The Cabanas Studio and Gallery is a turn-of-the- century farmhouse that offers the perfect backdrop for the artist’s evocative  paintings inspired by life in the coastal village of Friendship.

Cabanas Studio and Gallery is located 1.5 miles north of Friendship village; look for the little white boat. For more information on the open studio, call 832-6633.

Cabanas is pleased to be recognized as artist of the season at the Friendship Museum, where her works hang amongst fascinating  memorabilia of a rich town history. The museum is open Mondays through Saturdays from 1 to 4 p.m. For more information, visit friendshipmuseum.org.
