Four Maine artists will show — and create — work in a variety of media Friday through Sunday, July 26 to 28, in the next Arts in the Barn exhibition at the Cushing Historical Society's barn, 17 Hathorn Point Road. “Four in Progress” will open with a 5 to 7 p.m. reception Friday and continue Saturday and Sunday from 10 to 4 p.m.

Participating artists Nancy Keenan Barron, Bob Matus, Jamie Ribisi-Braley and Brian Braley will be working on new pieces at the barn during the show, and they invite the public to watch and discuss the process with them.

Nancy Keenan Barron, of South Gardiner, began making art starting with the closet walls of her childhood bedroom, which became a spaceship with the help of a crayon. She is the program director at the Harlow Gallery in Hallowell.
