Carl Lopes: A 5 Decade Retrospective

  • Oct 19 — Nov 16, 2024

October 19 - November 16

Opening Reception October 19

Cotuit Center for the Arts is thrilled to host this milestone exhibition by Carl Lopes. His paintings are a respectful nod to centuries of influential African design and tradition. Colors, patterns and compositions pay tribute to ancestral heritages and cultures, yet maintain a direct contemporary vibe. Masks, portraits, birds, and fish are embellished with geometric motifs and designs that visually pop.

Airbrushed acrylics, holographic papers, glass beads, and jewelry are attached to wood panels and coated with high gloss poly-resin. The paintings appear as if they are stained glass, and lit from behind. The intentional stunning appearances leave viewers amazed and intrigued.
