Cape Cod Museum of Art Honors FAWC with Season-Long Exhibition.Summer Exhibitions:
Cape Cod Museum of Art (CCMoA) has announced its program for summer exhibitions, including, Connections: Visual Fellows of the Cape, an exhibition celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Fine Arts Work Center that runs through September 9. CCMoA puts the spotlight on artists who originally came to the Cape on fellowships to FAWC in Provincetown and decided to stay on the Cape and mature in their work. They have continued finding new ways of seeing that reflect their personal directions in the contemporary art world.
The Fine Arts Work Center offers emerging artists from around the world the time and space to develop their art in Provincetown. This show celebrates both the extraordinary work of past Fellows and the Work Center’s core mission to sustain and invigorate the creative community of the Outer Cape.
The 21 artists in the exhibit are: Bailey Bob Bailey, Susan Baker, Richard Baker, Paul Bowen, Linda Bond, James Esber, Bill Evaul, Jenny Fitts, Jane Fine, Jenny Humphreys, Janelle Iglesias, Maryalice Johnston, Irene Lipton, Susan Lyman, Nathalie Meibach, Jim Peters, Janice Redman, James Everett Stanley, Vicky Tomayko, Tabitha Vevers, and Bert Yarborough
There will be a public reception for the show on Thursday, June 7, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. It will be preceded by a gallery talk with artists in the Connections show at 4:30 p.m. CCMoA is located at 60 Hope Lane, just off Route 6A, on the same campus as the Cape Cinema and the Cape Cod Playhouse in Dennis, Mass.
