Three artists, working in different media, are featured in the next Arts in the Barn exhibition opening Friday, Aug. 4, with a 5 to 8 p.m. reception in the Cushing Historical Society’s barn at 17 Hathorne Point Road. The show will continue Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 5 and 6, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.

Featured artists are Christine S. Neville, showing watercolors as “Tee”; Anne Goodale, showing chakras quilts; and potter Candace Crosby-Rogers, showing her Riverview Clayworks.

Tee worked as an educator for more than 40 years in New York, Virginia, Ohio and Maine, dabbling in watercolor painting all the while. When she retired to Cushing, she took up her brush in earnest, and her works have appeared in various Midcoast venues.

Goodale grew up in a family of quiltmakers and studied painting at the Whitney Independent Study program in New York. Inspired by a show of Amish quilts at the Whitney Museum, fabric became her art medium of choice and she has been creating art quilts for several decades. She has made commissioned pieces and sold her work in craft galleries in New York and Boston. Travels to Peru and Nepal expanded her interest in art forms with healing qualities, especially mandalas; this series of chakras art quilts explores the healing qualities of color.

Crosby-Rogers has been working with clay for nine years, blending form with function. She often observes objects in shops, museums and nature, and works to transform the image into pottery. She said it is a challenging process that inspires her to create and alter forms, while keeping them functional.
