COTUIT FOCUSES ON FACES
Regional Art Exhibit to be Curated by Maggie Van Sciver
Cotuit, MA: On July 29, 2023, Cotuit Center for the Arts will present FACE TIME, a major regional art exhibit featuring 118 works created by 69 well-known New England artists depicting an exquisite collection of diverse faces. The show will be open from Saturday, July 29, through Sunday, Sept. 3, on Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. The entire ﬁrst and second ﬂoor galleries of Cotuit Center for the Arts will be devoted to this major exhibit, which is FREE and open to the public.
“After countless months of working remotely and masking in public spaces, who among us didn’t miss the simple pleasure of seeing another’s entire face? Artists have always strived to portray our expressions and unique facial features in their paintings and sculptures. This exhibit features face-centric portraiture by 69 remarkable artists capturing a fascinating variety of subjects,” said Maggie Van Sciver, Curator.
“We were delighted when Maggie agreed to guest curate her seventh major exhibit at our venue,” said Cotuit Center for the Arts Executive Director David Kuehn. “She has an uncanny ability to select and obtain exceptional works from preeminent artists. Her exhibits are always a spectacular addition to our annual schedule.”
An unusually wide range of materials will be represented in the exhibit including: acrylics, aluminum, bronze, charcoal, copper, epoxy, fabric, ink, jute, gemstones, gold leaf, marine debris, oils, pastels, photography, plaster, spray paint, steel, stoneware, terra cotta, watercolors, wax, wire, wood, and much more.
“Visitors to this exhibit will be surprised and delighted by the artists and the gallerists who have graciously agreed to feature work in FACE TIME. Many of the contributors are quite distinguished and will be sharing their work for the ﬁrst time with the mid-Cape community. It is going to be a captivating exhibit which you will not want to miss,” said Van Sciver.
