ROCKPORT — The Monhegan Artists' Residency program presents a PechaKucha-style event on Saturday, Oct. 26, 5 p.m. at 162 Russell Ave. (the former CMCA building). A group of Monhegan Artists’ Residents, including residents from the last two summers, will present slideshows of their work. Presentations will include highlights from their experience creating work on the island and how the experience has informed their current studio practice. Presenting artists include: Kate Cargile (2019), Jennifer Calivas (2019), Sarah Haskell (2018), Raegan Russell (2018), Carol Sloane (2002) and Jude Valentine (2018). Doors will open to the public at 4:30 p.m. and tickets are $5 at the door. An informal reception will follow.

Established 30 years ago, the Monhegan Artists’ Residency program has supported the creative growth of dedicated Maine artists by providing them time and space in which to work free of interruption and constraint in the inspiring environment of Monhegan Island. Long a haven for innovative artistic practice, the island offers a dramatic setting and a compelling community of visual artists, fishermen and gardeners who provide an unusual and distinct perspective on the modern world.
