Our gallery season begins with The Arts Foundation of Cape Cod and Cotuit Center for the Arts eighth collaborative Winter Exhibit. The annual juried show, this year titled Opposites Attract, features work by established and emerging Cape Cod artists who have interpreted the theme literally and figuratively, in a myriad of mediums. A series of child-friendly events are scheduled in conjunction over the course of the month. Groups of all ages are invited to contact the Arts Foundation to schedule a visit, which includes a customized docent-led tour and hands-on art instruction.
The exhibit will feature 72 of the Cape's top established and emerging artists and run from January 10 through February 21, 2015.
The exhibit is free and open to the public.
School groups will be welcomed to the exhibit for free for the duration of the show, and will be given docent-led tours and art instruction customized to the age level of the children.
"The Arts Foundation is pleased to offer this outstanding exhibition to the public, and we're proud that the exhibit is designed especially with Cape Cod's young people in mind," said David B. Kaplan, Interim Executive Director of the Arts Foundation. He continued "many people and organization's have made the exhibit possible and enabled us to keep it free. This year we're particularly grateful to our Barnstable County government leadership for again supporting this exhibit and recognizing the Arts Foundation as the region's Designated Arts Agency. The exhibit perfectly embodies the Arts Foundation's mission to support, promote, celebrate and strengthen the arts on Cape Cod."
