LOST AND FOUND:
TIME, TIDE, AND TREASURES

Found, Formed, Fused
August 19 - November 14, 2021
More and more frequently, artists use a wide variety of material – some quite unusual, like plastic bags, stones and twigs – in their works. “Vision 2020: Found, Formed, Fused,” opening August 19 at the Cape Cod Museum of Art in Dennis, features nine New England artists who have created two- and three-dimensional work featuring mostly non-traditional material.
Co-curated by Deborah Pressman and Cecilia Rossey, the exhibition explores the transformation of pedestrian materials into surprising, inspiring and sculptural objects. Pressman regards artists in the exhibition as “immensely curious and fearless – it is about taking risks, going beyond paint, canvas or bronze to explore new ways of aesthetic and meaningful expressions,” she says. Consider Cambridge artist Michelle Lougee who crochets throwaway plastic bags into biomorphic objects, often sea creatures. In this way, Lougee expresses her commitment to the environment.
The installation of this exhibition at the museum enhances the total space as the works move around the perimeter and are interposed in the central area to sensually redefine the structure of the gallery and provide a holistic visual experience.
