16 June – 13 August, 2005

Twentieth century American painting from New England’s summer art colonies will be the focus of ACME Fine Art’s summer-long exhibition. The salon style show will open on the16th June and will run through 13 August 2005.

More than thirty artists and over forty works will be included in the exhibition that will present a stylistic cross section of modern art in America. Coastal New England art colonies such as Monhegan Island and Cranberry Island in Maine, and Westport and Provincetown in Massachusetts are the sources for much of the artwork that will comprise the exhibition, and the New England coastline will be the loosely interpreted theme. Artwork from the early twentieth century will include paintings by Blanche Lazzell, Oliver Chaffee, Abraham Walkowitz, Agnes Weinrich, T. Lux Feininger, Jo Cain, John Von Wicht, Vaclav Vytlacil, and Howard Gibbs. Mid-century artists whose work will be represented include: Hans Hofmann, Karl Knaths, Peter Busa, John Grillo, Herman Maril, Philip Malicoat, George McNeil, Nanno de Groot, Kenneth Stubbs, Grace Martin Taylor, Jim Forsberg, Dorothy Eisner, William Freed, Leo Manso, Lillian Orlowsky, and Michael Loew among others. ACME will also feature a fine selection of paintings by late twentieth century and contemporary artists such as Robert Beauchamp, Noa Hall, Rose Basile, Tony Vevers, and Myrna Harrison.

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