The next Arts in the Barn exhibition at the Cushing Historical Society's barn, 17 Hathorn Point Road, showcases a number of local artists. The show will open with a 5 to 7 p.m. reception Friday, July 15; and continue Saturday, July 16, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and Sunday, July 17, from 10 to 2 p.m.

Christine S. Neville, who paints as “Tee,” will show watercolors. She split her growing-up summers between Keuka Lake, one of New York’s Finger Lakes; and Cousins Island, where she fell in love with everything Maine.  She has always dabbled in watercolor painting, but it wasn’t until she retired to Cushing that she took up her brush in earnest. Tee’s works have appeared in various venues in the Midcoast.

Candace Crosby-Rogers, a Cushing resident in the summers who teaches special education during the school year, is an accomplished potter who brings unusual shapes to her products and enhances the external patterns with natural materials and fabrics.

Judith Grossman is a local artist known for her watercolors; she brings something special to this show, using her designer background to create unique handpainted bags and pillows.

Friends of the features artists who also will be showing work include painters Pat Farmer and Thom Buesher.
