SUMMER SALON 2011

mcneil-beach-picture-lg9 July – 20 August 2011

ACME Fine Art’s SUMMER SALON exhibition will be on view from 9 July to 20 August 2011. The exhibition will feature new acquisitions and inventory highlights that celebrate the season, with several works depicting the New England coast.

Recently acquired works include a striking, cubist-influenced figure by modernist Milton Avery, an important Beach Picture from George McNeil’s transitional period, and Tony Vevers’ On The Road, an austere image in which a lone figure traverses a simplified landscape. A group of four outstanding drawings and sketches by Edwin Dickinson executed between 1924 and 1954 exemplify his accomplished draftsmanship.

Works by twenty-two artists that span nearly a century are included in this diverse collection that presents a variety of subjects and styles. Rare works by early modernists Edwin Dickinson and Ross Moffett join fine examples by mid-century artists such as Fritz Bultman, Peter Busa, Giorgio Cavallon, Nanno de Groot, William Freed, Maurice Freedman, Wolf Kahn, Charles Littler, Seong Moy, Lillian Orlowsky, Haynes Ownby, and Grace Martin Taylor. The exhibition also features a selection of paintings by late twentieth century and contemporary artists Robert Beauchamp, Dorothy Eisner, Lester Johnson, Tony Vevers, and Richard Baker.

ACME Fine Art and Design is located at 38 Newbury Street, Boston, Massachusetts, 02116. Summer Hours are 11:00 to 5:30 Wednesday through Saturday, and by appointment.
