Local artist David Vickery will display new paintings from Cushing and Monhegan at his annual open studio Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 5 and 6, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at his residence.

Vickery's contemporary realism goes deep into his immediate surroundings and seeks to convey a psychological atmosphere through accumulated layers of paint. He is represented locally at Dowling Walsh Gallery in Rockland and Courthouse Gallery in Ellsworth.

Vickery’s studio is located at 5 Maloney Lane, off Hathorne Point Road just before the Olson House. Signs will be posted.
