7 Deadly Sins

Seven Deadly Sins

Cotuit Center for the Arts, one of the most dynamic year-round cultural institutions on Cape Cod, is proud to present its October 2018 photography show, Seven Deadly Sins. Selected artists have interpreted this theme in their own unique ways. The sins of lust, envy, sloth, gluttony, pride, wrath, and greed, are with us every day. Where do you see them? What are the countermeasures you see people take to avoid their deadly embrace?

“Seven Deadly Sins – an international juried photography exhibit” will run October 13 – November 10.

The second international juried photography exhibition presented by Cotuit Center for the Arts will offer seven prizes totaling more than $3,000 in cash prizes. All submitted work will be shown in our digital gallery and 30 works will be chosen to be hung in the gallery. The 30 works chosen for the gallery will be featured in a printed exhibition catalog along with a statement from the photographer to be produced by James and Jean Anton.

In addition to the international juried photography exhibition, “Lucky Eye” by Rosemary LeBeau will be on display. The opening reception and artist talk will be held from 5-7pm on Saturday, October 13.

The juror is famed photographer Amy Arbus, who teaches portraiture at the International Center of Photography, Anderson Ranch, NORD photography and the Fine Arts Work Center. She has published several books of photography, including The Fourth Wall which the New Yorker called her “masterpiece.” Her work has appeared in over 100 periodicals including The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, Architectural Digest, and The New York Times Magazine. She is the daughter of actor Allan Arbus and photographer Diane Arbus. Her work can be seen at www.amyarbus.com.
