Black Hole in Rockland has extended “Views from Monhegan” through Sept. 27.

The exhibit features work from young Monhegan artists John “J.P.” Kordak and Leith MacDonald.

MacDonald works with driftwood he collected over time and with carved elements from toys he made for his son with his grandfather’s tools. He spent six summers and a winter working on Monhegan.

In 2010, he developed a series of walking art tours that explore Monhegan and its place in American art history, which continue today.

While living on the island, MacDonald carved and printed numerous wood blocks by hand, experimented with printing art on clothes, participated in Mostel’s Salon, and produced short videos.

Kordak has been visiting Monhegan all his life. He spent summers there in his youth and has lived and worked on the island for the past 15 years. Kordak is a self-taught artist whose work reflects his immersion in life on the island. His pieces feature Monhegan’s landscape and its surrounding waters.

Kordak’s work also draws on his experiences as a sternman, ground-fisher, landscaper and caretaker.
