It's About Size, the annual holiday works exhibit is back, and as always, features perfectly sized, future heirloom works for holiday gift-giving.
"It's About Size" opens with a reception on Friday, November 25th, from 2 pm to 4 pm, and runs through January 2nd. It's our quintessential gift-giving collection, or as Goldilocks would say, its 'just right! The smaller works' show has become a hugely popular event because we make a point of gathering a broad range of subjects and medium in size-range that makes them accessible.
The collection will feature works by stable artists and include many new, small, and midsize works.
Catherine Nash is a dedicated artist who has mastered numerous mediums over the decades, giving her the freedom to convey a true vision clearly. Each work is a window to another world, moment, world, or consciousness, which over time, evolves along with the viewer.
There are several new, smaller works by Jeanne' McCartin, whose three-dimensional wall-hung sculpted/paintings are best described as a decidedly individual. The show will include pieces from her ongoing "Concept Snapshot Series." Steve Bowersock's moody, poignant, surreal oil paintings will include numerous new, small works and studies, along with a number of pieces from his most recent collections. Paul Buckingham will present his classic, rich, representational florals along with a new, small series of Provincetown scenes. The contemporary work of Kevin Kusilek will cover a lot of ground, ranging from strong, energetic cityscapes to quiet, reflective sailboats adrift in placid waters.
"It's About Size" will also present new works by Emma Ashby (encaustics), Janet Beattie (assemblage), John Brickels (sculpture), and Darlou Gams (oils), to name a few.
But more importantly, it's an opportunity to select a gift that's truly personal and unique, an heirloom rather than some mass-produced object. It's a gift with meaning. And the third reason given is it's a great time to purchase something new for their own collection.
