ACME Fine Art's annual exhibition featuring
notable twentieth century artists who worked in Provincetown Massachusetts
will open with a reception on Thursday evening 10 February from
six to eight p.m. The salon style exhibition will feature artwork
dating 1907 to 2004 and will include a stylistically diverse selection
of work by more than twenty artists.
One particularly noteworthy painting that will
be of interest to those who collect early Provincetown paintings
is a rare 1916 oil of the waterfront by Reynolds Beal titled The
Red Inn, Provincetown. This remarkable example of American impressionist
painting is an unusually fine representation of the Provincetown
shoreline. Other artwork from the first half of the century will
include paintings by, Oliver Chaffee, Howard Gibbs, Blanche Lazzell,
Agnes Weinrich, Edwin Dickinson, Grace Martin Taylor, Abraham Walkowitz,
Vaclav Vytlacil, and Michael Loew.
From the group of artists associated with Hans
Hofmann in Provincetown the exhibition will also include an important
1968 canvas depicting Provincetown rooftops by Robert DeNiro Sr.
and summer studio paintings by William Freed and Lillian Orlowsky.
Other mid-century artists whose work will be represented include:
Karl Knaths, Philip Malicoat, Herman Maril, George McNeil, Fritz
Bultman, Peter Busa, Paul Burlin, Nanno de Groot, Kenneth Stubbs,
Jim Forsberg, and Leo Manso among others. ACME will also feature
a fine selection of paintings by late twentieth century and contemporary
artists such as Robert Beauchamp, Tony Vevers, Myrna Harrison,
and Rose Basile.
