The Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC) and the Cultural Center of Cape Cod will present a small works invitational exhibition, Painted Visions: Paintings by Award-Winning Massachusetts Artist, from July 13- August 8, 2010 at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod in South Yarmouth.
Painted Visions features eleven painters recognized by the MCC’s Artist Fellowship Program: Liza Bingham (Cambridge), Rebecca Doughty (Cambridge), Christopher Faust (Boston), Yanick Lapuh (Brookline), Scott Listfield (Somerville), Joshua Meyer (Cambridge), Anne Neely (Milton), Monica Nydam (Jamaica Plain), Harold Reddicliffe (Waltham), Matthew Rich (Jamaica Plain), and Michael Zelehoski (Lee).
“It’s an honor to host this exhibit, since it brings some of the region’s finest artists to the Cape for residents and visitors of all ages and interests” said Robert Nash, Executive Director, Cultural Center of Cape Cod. “We work hard to exhibit a balance of emerging and established artists of all genres from the Cape and Islands, the region, and across the country, so we’re very excited to devote our Great Hall to such an excellent and eclectic collection of paintings.”
These fellows/finalists were selected from a pool of 488 painting applicants. The jurors included Evan Garza (New American Paintings), Allison Kemmerer (Addison Gallery of American Art) and Christine McCarthy (Provincetown Art Association and Museum). MCC Artist Fellowships provide direct assistance to Massachusetts artists working across a range of disciplines, to recognize exceptional work and to support the further development of their talents. Artist Fellowships give individuals the financial ability to hone and deepen their craft.
“It’s clear that painting continues to be a thriving art form here in the Commonwealth,” says Anita Walker, MCC’s Executive Director. “From exquisitely executed still-lifes to boldly rendered geometrical abstraction, this exhibition showcases the range of exceptional artists we are fortunate to support.”
