Twentieth century American painting from New England’s summer art colonies is the focus of ACME Fine Art’s SUMMER SALON exhibition. The –something for everyone- exhibition is on view through 21 August 2010.
Fourteen artists and over twenty works are included in an exhibition that presents a stylistic cross section of modern art in America. Coastal New England art colonies such as Monhegan Island and Cranberry Island in Maine, and Provincetown in Massachusetts, notably the summer session of the Hans Hofmann School of Fine Art, are the sources for much of the artwork that comprises the exhibition. Figurative and abstract depictions of the New England coastline and the human form prevail. Fine examples by mid-century artists such as: Jack Tworkov, George McNeil, Lester Johnson, Stephen Pace, Giorgio Cavallon, Maurice Freedman, Nanno de Groot, Kenneth Stubbs, Haynes Ownby, Charles Littler, and William Freed are on view. The exhibition also features a fine selection of paintings by late twentieth century and contemporary artists Dorothy Eisner and George Lloyd.
