27 June – 16 August, 2008

Twentieth century American painting from New England’s summer art colonies will be the focus of ACME Fine Art’s summer-long SUMMER SALON exhibition. The –something for everyone- exhibition will open on Friday 27 June and will remain on view through 16 August 2008.

More than thirty artists and over forty works will be included in the exhibition that will present a stylistic cross section of modern art in America. Coastal New England art colonies such as Monhegan Island and Cranberry Island in Maine, and Westport and Provincetown in Massachusetts are the sources for much of the artwork that will comprise the exhibition, and the New England coastline will be the loosely interpreted theme. Artwork from the early twentieth century will include paintings by, Edwin Dickinson, Blanche Lazzell, Werner Drewes, Ross Moffett, Grace Martin Taylor, Agnes Weinrich, T. Lux Feininger, and Howard Gibbs. Fine examples by mid-century artists such as: Hans Hofmann, Jack Tworkov, George McNeil, Charmion Von Wiegand, Lester Johnson, Myron Stout, Stephen Pace, Maurice Freedman, Karl Knaths, Peter Busa, Herman Maril, Philip Malicoat, Nanno de Groot, Kenneth Stubbs, James Gahagan, Haynes Ownby, Gil Franklin, William Freed, Leo Manso, Lillian Orlowsky, and Michael Loew will all be included.

ACME Fine Art is delighted to announce that the gallery now represents the distinguished artist Robert Kipniss. Several of Mr. Kipniss’s canvasses will hang in the gallery for the first time as a part of the Summer Salon exhibition. The exhibition will also feature a fine selection of paintings by other late twentieth century and contemporary artists such as, George Lloyd, Robert Beauchamp, Dorothy Eisner, Rose Basile, Tony Vevers, and Myrna Harrison.

ACME Fine Art and Design is located at 38 Newbury Street, Boston, Massachusetts, 02116. Summer Hours are 11:00 to 5:00 Tuesday through Saturday, and other times by appointment.
