Curator Maggie Van Sciver began visiting artists’ studios more than a year ago seeking the most interesting portrait artists on the Cape. The result is her show, Face Time, which opens this weekend at the Cotuit Center for the Arts.
This regional exhibit features 118 works created by 69 New England artists depicting a collection of diverse faces.
The show opens Saturday, July 29 and runs through Sunday, September 3. Hours are Tuesday to Friday, 10am to 4pm and Saturday and Sunday noon to 4pm. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
Van Sciver said of her motivation for this show, “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.”
She continued, “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.”
A wide range of mediums 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 more.
Cotuit Center for the Arts is located at 4404 Route 28 in Cotuit. More information is at artsonthecape.org.
