Twentieth Century American painting will be the focus of Acme Fine Art’s summer exhibition. The salon-style show will run through August 21.
More than 30 artists and over 40 works will be included in the exhibition that will present a stylistic cross section of modern art in America.
The New England coastline will be the loosely interpreted theme. This diverse group of modern landscape paintings will feature paintings from Kingston, R.I., to Cape Split, Maine with many diversions in between. Artwork from the early Twentieth Century will include paintings by Hans Hofmann, Edwin Dickinson, Blanche Lazzell, Oliver Chaffee, Agnes Weinrich, Jo Cain, Howard Gibbs and Ben Shahn.
Mid-century artists whose work will be represented include Peter Busa, Herman Maril, Philip Malicoat, George McNeil, Nanno de Groot, Kenneth Stubbs, Grace Martin Taylor, Dorothy Eisner, William Freed, Leo Manso and Michael Loew among others. Acme will also feature a fine selection of paintings by late Twentieth Century and contemporary artists such as Lillian Orlowsky, Robert Beauchamp, Mary Hackett, Jack Hall, Rose Basile, Tony Vevers, Myrna Harrison and Angelo Ippolito.
Acme Fine Art and Design is at 38 Newbury Street. Summer hours are 11 am to 5 pm, Tuesday through Saturday, and other times by appointment. For information, acme fineart.com.
