Millennial artist Jon Mort will exhibit his latest creations during the "Island Worlds” open studio Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 6 and 7, at Fieldstone Castle studio, 129 Marshall Point Road. An artist tour and talk will take place Saturday at 1 p.m.

Mort hopes to share the appreciation for the beauty and challenges of island living he gained working crew for Monhegan Boat. As a lifelong Port Clyde summer resident, the surrounding islands hold a strong fascination, constantly drawing him to explore and collect the natural treasures and artifacts featured in his artwork.

Mort’s recent sold-out exhibition at the Somerville Manning Gallery in Greenville, Del., included many Maine inspired pieces and received rave reviews; and American Art Collector Magazine featured his work. He also is also a highly sought-after portrait artist, capturing the likenesses of many local Maine luminaries.

Mort’s work has been featured in exhibitions at the Philips Museum, the Portsmouth Museum of Art and the Sandy Spring Museum. He received fine art and classics degrees from Franklin and Marshall College and a master’s in architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design; and has exhibited his artwork in more than 20 gallery and museum venues. The Carla Massoni Gallery and Somerville Manning gallery represent him.

“Island Worlds” hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. For more information, visit or call 372-8658.
