Insight into INTERIORS
March 12 - April 19
Join us for a new perspective on the INTERIORS exhibition! Docents will be selecting pieces from the Permanent Collection on the INTERIORS theme.
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 or internalized feelings and emotions may resonate within an artwork.
Gallery Talk - Friday, March 13 at 4:00
Public Reception - Friday, March 13 at 5:00

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?

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!

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!
