The second annual Cushing Artist’s Open Studio Tour is set for Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 3 and 4. Phyllis Fales is coordinating the tour of 10 participating artists. She and her sister Karen Jones are partners of Two Sisters — Two Cameras Gallery, next to Broad Cove Market on River Road. Five of the participating artists are at the gallery, the rest are along the peninsula.

Cushing came to the forefront of America’s Art scene with Andrew Wyeth’s masterpiece “Christina’s World,” which captured the rugged individualism of Maine’s saltwater farming tradition. The Olson House, where Wyeth had a studio, is open for tours during the weekend. The tour celebrates a new generation of artists along the 13-mile finger of land on the St. George River. The two-day tour offers the rare opportunity to enjoy conversations with artists John Paul Caponigro, Fales and Jones, Pat Farmer, Victor Goldsmith, Judy Knowlton, Mark Krehbiel, David Vickery and Trish Weisbrot.

Caponigro’s annual exhibition 2013 “Around The World and Process” offers glowing auroras, crashing glaciers, colliding icebergs, thundering waterfalls, smoldering volcanoes, shimmering salt flats and shifting dunes through the artist’s eye. Caponigro Arts, at 73 Cross Road, will be open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, with an artist talk at 2 p.m.

Wood sculptor Goldsmith’s 20 years of sculpting bookends his 22-year architectural career. His abstract expressions of natural and musical rhythms scaled for indoor home display may be seen between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.; the studio is a vertical woodsided building on the left side of Pleasant Point Road 150 yards south of the intersection of River Road and Cross Road.

Fales is a Maine native with two passions: singing and photography. Customers at the market she and her husband owned requested postcards, so she printed images of Broad Cove on card stock to sell and invited her sister, Jones, whose childhood goal was to become a professional photographer, to team up under the name Two Sisters — Two Cameras. Their initial show came right after Fales’ husband’s unexpected death and buoyed her through a turbulent time. The old hunting camp on her property that serves as a small gallery will be open Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.

When Farmer retired to Cushing, she tapped back into creating with pencil and brush. Watercolor and acrylics are her favorites, for allow greater freedom to produce the desired effect. Her mixed media studio is located at 104 River Road

Knowlton is a catalyst who “midwifes” would-be writers into authors. The New Jersey native began her publishing work in 1985, at the helm of her husband’s counseling firm after his passing. Quotidian began with two tiny books, both in print today and available on Kindle. She has brought 30-plus books into existence for others in addition to writing 15 of her own.

Master whitesmith Mark Krehbiel has worked to master the ancient art of hand-poured pewter jewelry for 25 years with pewter is based on 2000-plus-years-old white bronze from Britannia. He will have his art booth and forge on site at Two Sisters — Two Cameras.

Vickery’s contemporary realist paintings integrate the relationships between natural and man-made worlds. He has maintained a studio at 5 Maloney Lane since 1991 and recently was featured in Maine Home + Design Magazine.

Weisbrot’s mixed media Minitudes are compact, whimsical pen, ink graphite and watercolor paintings reminiscent of a child’s favorite storybook. Her bright, funky and fun work is available at Two Sisters – Two Cameras.
