"Painting New England in Pastel"
A Singular Celebration of People, Place and Pastimes
A new PPSCC Juried Exhibition, September 22, 2013 - January 19, 2014 at The Duxbury Art Complex Museum,
189 Alden Street, Duxbury, MA
OPENING RECEPTION & AWARDS PRESENTATION:
SEPTEMBER 22, 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm
The pronouncement "I'm from New England" most likely evokes a mélange of images... from lighthouses to lobsters... fields to beaches and so much more. This past spring, the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod challenged artists who are residents of New England and/or members of other New England pastel societies to capture the essence of New England in the pastel medium. Out of 300 entries, 72 paintings were juried into the show by juror of selection Nancy Whipple Grinnell, curator of the Newport Art Museum & Art Association. Through the depiction of iconic images, this exhibition will present a visual montage of the vast variety that somehow melds together to create the sense of belonging in New England.
