PIONEERS OF MODERNISM

17 November – 23 December, 2005

ACME Fine Art and Design’s next gallery event will be the opening of a group exhibition titled PIONEERS OF MODERNISM: Agnes Weinrich, Grace Martin Taylor, & Blanche Lazzell. The exhibition will feature more than twenty works by these highly regarded modern artists. The show will open with a reception on Thursday 17 November 2005 from six to eight o’clock, and will run through Friday 23 December 2005.

Weinrich, Taylor, and Lazzell were important players in the avant-garde art scene that flourished in Provincetown Massachusetts early in the last century. Each of these well-trained and highly educated women was skilled in drawing and painting, and they were among the earliest advocates/practitioners of white line wood-block (“Provincetown”) print-making. They shared a mutual interest in abstraction that was often derived from cubism, and these formal characteristics are consistently evident in their work regardless of medium. ACME Fine Art’s exhibition will include important oil paintings, drawings, watercolors, white line wood block prints, and some rarely seen wood blocks that were hand-carved by the artists as a part of their print-making process.

ACME Fine Art’s PIONEERS OF MODERNISM will be viewable on this site and at the gallery located at 38 Newbury Street in Boston. Gallery hours are from 11:00 to 5:30 Tuesday though Saturday. Further information can be obtained by contacting the gallery at info@acmefineart.com or calling 617.585.9551.
