Twenty-One in Truro celebrates 21st Anniversary with Exhibition at Cahoon Museum
The Cahoon Museum of American Art will hold an art opening reception for two exhibitions, Twenty-One in Truro: Celebrating the Cahoon Museum Collection and Richard Perry: Real Illusions. Admission is free.
Marking the 21st anniversary of the Cape Cod artists group, Twenty-One in Truro, the Museum collaborated with these accomplished and widely exhibited regional artists on a special show. Each member was invited to create a new work in response to one of four paintings from the Museum’s significant holdings of American art. Their individual connections to the museum’s collection pieces generate new interpretations and build a lively conversation between contemporary and historic artwork. Diverse media are on view, including acrylic, oil, pastel, archival digital print, and sculpture.
Exhibiting artists are Heather Blume, LaVerne Christopher, Michele Dangelo, Jane Eccles, Maryalice Eizenberg, Sarah Fielding-Ricci, Susan Hollis, Martine Jore, Jane Lincoln, Jerre Moriarty, Rosalie Nadeau, Kate Nelson, Carol Odell, Julie Siler Olander, Suzanne Packer, Jo Ann Ritter, M’Lou Sorrin, Lorraine Trenholm, Christie Velesig, Linda Young, and Joyce Zavorskas.
The second exhibition, Richard Perry: Real Illusions, presents a selection of wall sculptures created by an art process Mr. Perry invented, intaglio relief. Mr. Perry explores the play of light on surfaces and creates fascinating perceptual illusions. As the viewer moves around the artwork, the images shifts between flat surfaces and those with visual depth, creating an intriguing holographic effect. Mr. Perry’s geometric and figural monochromatic works are featured. The works will be on view in the Museum’s Fish Family Gallery.
