Longing and Anticipation

January 4 - March 12, 2023


Longing and Anticipation is a docent-curated exhibition from the Cape Cod Museum of Art's Permanent Collection.


At this time of year, when the days are short and the temperature drops below freezing, we can sometimes get lost in contemplation – Longing for times gone by, or waiting in Anticipation of a more promising future.


The artworks in this exhibition resonate to one of these sentiments and are divided within this gallery space by theme.


Pouring through the high-resolution digital images recently captured during the digitization project we completed this last summer, Cape Cod Museum of Art (CCMoA) Docents selected these 62 artworks from over 2000 held in the CCMoA Permanent Collection. The Docents also provided brief biographies for each artist represented in this exhibition. These biographies can be found on the wall labels.

Art selections in this exhibition were made by the following CCMoA Docents: Nikki Alexander, Carolyn Duch, Ellie Freedman, Judy McElroy and Karen Pryce. Artist research was provided by the aforementioned Docents, with additional Docent contributions from: Peter Adams, Maureen Callahan, Barbara Cole, Diane Depczenski, Maria Ianzito, Barbara Gray, Cathy Hagopian, Mary Ann Harward, Priscilla Hutchinson, Deborah Jacobs, Christina Petruska, Barbara Potzka, Ann Wolf, Christine Young and Margo Greenough (former docent).
