Sears’ ‘Sticks and Stones’ in Cushing Barn

Jul 06, 2018
“Condon Cove” is an acrylic on paperboard by David Sears, whose inspirations include Native American/aboriginal art.

Cushing — Cushing artist David Sears’ new solo show, “Sticks and Stones,” will be on view Saturday and Sunday, July 14 and 15, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Cushing Historical Society Barn, 17 Hathorne Point Road. The public is invited to an opening reception Friday, July 13, from 5 to 7 p.m.

The show will feature new carved and painted wood and metal sculptures of birds and fish; a handful of Condon Cove rock paintings and watercolors; and acrylic paintings and prints of fish and birds, many inspired by the “Wyeth country” of Sears’ local Cushing neighborhood, as well as by Matinicus Island, on which the artist also maintains a studio.

“Almost 20 years of living on a small island has focused my art on what is close and observable — your neighborhood, the fragility of island life, the importance of clean, plentiful water and the need to preserve wilderness,” the artist said.

Georges River Land Trust will receive a percentage of the artist’s proceeds to support its Langlais Sculpture Preserve. For more information about Sears’ work, visit
