Wendy Wight will be the featured presenter in the next Arts in the Barn offering Friday through Sunday, July 19 through 21. This is her seventh summer in Maine and her second solo show at the Cushing Historical Society’s barn on Hathorn Point Road. She lives in Houston during the off-season and in Friendship during the summer.

An opening reception will be held Friday from 5 to 7 p.m., free and open to the public. The show will continue on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Hathorn Point Road is located off Pleasant Point Road. For more information, contact Judith Zizza at 354-6939.

The show, “1000 project,” began on Jan. 1. The first 500 paintings were created in Houston, where Wright had friends and family donate mementos — handwriting, journals, schoolwork, math, grocery lists, old postcards, family photos, maps, etc. The second 500 paintings have been created in Maine, where Wright ran a newspaper ad for four weeks asking the public to donate items to the project.

Every person who has donated to the project will be given a sheet of paper with a list of the painting numbers that their items are in; Wright keeps all donations confidential and she does not include names in the works, which are hung in numerical order of creation. Each of the 1,000 collage paintings is 8-by-6 inches and $40.
