David Vickery

David Vickery is an artist based in Cushing, Maine. He has been working from his studio since 1991 and is known for his precise realism and exploration of light and space. Vickery’s work is about the merger of nature and culture – an attempt to make sense of our place in the world.  He looks at our imprint on the landscape with an eye for the imperfect, quirky, and sometimes elegant adaptations we’ve made to live here. 

David was an early participant of the Monhegan Artists’ Residency in 1993. His first visit to Monhegan was in 1987 and he has been painting the island ever since.

His work is included in private collections across the country as well as the Farnsworth Museum in Rockland. His work is also included in the books Paintings Of New England (Carl Little/Arnold Skolnick, 1996),  Art of Monhegan Island (Carl Little/Arnold Skolnick 2004), and Art of Penobscot Bay (Carl Little/David Little 2023). One of his Monhegan scenes was chosen for the cover of Adam White’s recent novel, The Midcoast.
