“Sticks and Stones,” a show of work by Cushing artist David Sears, will be on view at the Cushing Historical Society Barn, 17 Hathorne Point Road in Cushing, on Saturday and Sunday, July 14 and 15, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The show will feature 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. An opening reception will be held Friday, July 13, from 5 to 7 p.m. The public is invited to attend. Georges River Land Trust will receive a percentage of proceeds from the show to support its Langlais Sculpture Preserve, the 90-acre former home of Cushing artist Bernard Langlais and his wife Helen, now owned by the land trust.
