“Where Light and Water Meet Sky: the Provincetown Art Colony in the 20th Century”
This program presents Christine McCarthy, Executive Director of Provincetown Art Association and Museum, and Dr. Melissa Renn, Collections Manager of the Harvard Business School Art and Artifacts Collection who will discuss Herman Maril and his art in the context of other 20th century American artists who worked in the Provincetown art colony. The panelists will expand on how the community, environment, light, and landscape of the outer Cape shaped both Maril’s art and others who painted there, including Stuart Davis, Charles Demuth, Marsden Hartley, Karl Knaths, Edward Hopper, Milton Avery, Adolph Gottlieb, Mark Rothko, Robert Motherwell, and Helen Frankenthaler. This program is held in conjunction with the exhibition Herman Maril: The Strong Forms of Our Experience which runs through October 28, 2018.
