The Figure: Changes in Vision
Curated by Museum Docents: Gail Burke, Maureen Callahan, Elinor Freedman, Judy McElroy, Karen Pryce, Gail Scannell
January 24 - April 12, 2015
This exhibition speaks to the uniqueness of the individual artist's vocabulary and vision and its ability to persuade and compel the viewer to engage.
The human form has been depicted by artists throughout the ages. The exhibit explores the varied interpretation of the human form by noted Cape Cod artists demonstrating a spectrum of style, medium, and subject. Whether the approach is traditional or embraces new technologies, the evolution of figures at work or play embrace stylistic elements of classic portraiture and the unconventional. Expression is lyrical to the provocative.
From Gordon Hanson's representational "Artist in his Studio to William Littlefield's abstract expressionist "Figures of Terror", we see artists continue to push for a new language that compels you to see the figure through their eyes. As you view the computer-generated imagery of Jan Collins Selman's "The Arrival of Thought", Arnold Geissbuhler's organic bronze "Female Figure" or Robert Henry's expressionist portrait "Lillian 3", the viewer experiences the diverse creative richness that defines artists and transforms art.
