A NAtional Juried Exhibition

Jan 24, 2020

Gallery Talk - 4:00 5:00 PM

Public Reception - 5:30 - 7:00 PM

INTERIORS can mean various things to different people. It can be a representational viewpoint from inside a home, workplace, studio or cafe - often it can have a nostalgic sensibility or invoke a feeling of security. A person might identify with a place of worship, or even a forest, to express their internal self.  Internalized feelings and emotions may resonate within an artwork. How would you express the concept of interior?

156 artists from 34 states submitted 425 works, 56 of those entries were selected for the exhibition by juror André van der Wende. He will announce the four award winners at the gallery talk on January 24.


Awards will be as follows:

Most Fitting to the Theme: $500.00

Juror’s Choice Award: $200.00

2 Honorable Mentions: $50.00 each

A note from the juror:
The job of selecting 56 works from an initial body of over 425 submissions is not easy. As Museum Director Benton Jones articulated to me, it was a positively “Herculean task!” There is limited space and while I could have easily selected double the number of works, in the end I was looking for diversity and cohesion at the same time. I hope achieved that. Art is about seeing something as though we’re seeing it again for the first time. I experienced that moment a lot while reviewing the work. All was with merit and I thank everyone for their submissions. It was a true privilege and a pleasure, and you are all to be congratulated!

Once Upon A Stitch

An exhibition by Salley Mavor for all ages

December 12 - January 26


Salley Mavor is devoted to stitching. She learned to sew as a child and has been using a needle and thread ever since. At home, there were always art supplies close at hand and a sense that time was available for creative pursuit. Drawing with crayons was never enough for Salley. She remembers feeling that her pictures were not finished until something real was glued, stapled or sewn to it. As an illustration major at the Rhode Island School of Design, she left traditional mediums behind, preferring to communicate her ideas with sculptural needlework. Salley has continued to develop her techniques for over 40 years, creating 3-dimensional works of art that tell stories with needlework and found objects. Check out her video Rabbitat here and another video, Liberty and Justice, here.


Ms. Mavor has illustrated many children’s books using her unique blend of materials and hand stitching techniques. Her picture book, Pocketful of Posies: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes won the 2011 Boston Globe-Horn Book Award and the 2011 Golden Kite Award. Her popular how-to book, Felt Wee Folk: New Adventures is in its 2nd edition, inspiring creativity in all ages. She and her husband Rob Goldsborough recently collaborated on the stop-motion animation, “Liberty and Justice: A Cautionary Tale in the Land of the Free”. Salley Mavor lives and works in her home studio in Falmouth, Massachusetts.

F.O.G. (Film Only Group) Exhibition


Alfred D'Alessandro Auditorium

Tulip Bouquet, David E. Jordan

The Cape Cod F.O.G. (Film Only Group) started with an idea for a discussion group on photography.  Its first meeting was held September 2007, and the rest is history. The group has been meeting for the past 10 years and has deeply enjoyed being part of the Museum.

This exhibition is ongoing and will be up for the foreseeable future. But unlike our other exhibitions, the F.O.G. will update and change their photo selection over the course of the exhibition. Every time you come in is a chance to see something new!
