The Cahoon Museum of American Art will present “Rhythms of Land and Sea: New Paintings by Anne Boucher” June 15-July 24. This exhibition/sale will feature about 25 acrylics and watercolors, each aglow with the crystalline light that is Cotuit artist Boucher’s trademark.
An opening reception will take place from 5 to 7 pm Friday, June 18. In conjunction with the show, Boucher will give gallery talks at 11 am on June 22 and July 13.
Boucher has never followed the beaten path. Growing up in Detroit, she was the child who ran away from home her senior year and who did not go to college. In 1974, she visited Cape Cod for the first time and impulsively returned only a week later to live there. Disliking instruction, she taught her self to paint simply by painting and looking at other artists’ work.
Many of the paintings in the exhibition are of Truro. Although she is no longer with the group, Boucher was the founder of “21 in Truro.”
Several paintings of swans – one of her favorite subjects – will also be in the show. The show will also feature scenes of Ballston Beach in Truro, fishing boats in Provincetown and the children’s Mosquito Fleet in Cotuit.
The Cahoon Museum is at 4676 Falmouth Road (Route 28). For information, 508-428-7581.
