ACME FINE ART’s 11th Annual SUMMER SALON

5 July – 17 August, 2013

This year ACME Fine Art will open the gallery’s much-anticipated annual  Summer Salon exhibition in new digs at 450 Harrison Avenue, Suite 308  in Boston’s South End. The opening will coincide with SoWa’s First  Friday events on Friday the 5th of July, and the gallery will be open  from 3:00 to 8:00 on that evening. The exhibition will be on view through Saturday  17 August.

This year’s Summer Salon will feature a variety of summer-themed  artworks created during the twentieth century at New England’s renowned  summer art colonies, as well as a selection of Gallery Director David  Cowan’s personal favorite works reprised from gallery and museum  exhibitions of the 2012/2013 season. Highlights will include a very  rare, early watercolor of the Provincetown waterfront by Edwin  Dickinson, a mid-career gem titled Polynesian I (small version) by Hans  Hofmann, an important oil painting titledSeaside Holiday by Kenneth  Stubbs that was featured in the recent Tides of Provincetown exhibition  mounted by the New Britain Museum of American Art, and an oil painting  by Dorothy Eisner from her celebrated Croquet Series that was created on Cranberry Island, Maine during the 1970s. Other artists whose artwork will form a part of the exhibition include: Michael Loew, Charles Littler, Myrna Harrison, Haynes Ownby, George  Lloyd, William Freed, Lillian Orlowsky, Maurice Freedman, Panos Ghikas,  Daniel Brustlein, and Jack Tworkov.

Timed to coincide with what promises to be a blockbuster exhibition  titled Pioneers of Provincetown that is being mounted this summer by  the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, this year’s Summer Salon  will also include a number of significant artworks by artists who will  be featured in the PAAM exhibition. The theme of the PAAM exhibition is  “the genesis of the Figurative Expressionist Movement in Provincetown.”  In concert with this, ACME Fine Art will feature Figurative  Expressionist works by such pioneers of that movement as Jan Muller,  Lester Johnson, Tony Vevers, Jay Milder, and George McNeil.

ACME Fine Art’s 11th Annual SUMMER SALON exhibition will open on  Friday, 5 July 2013 and will be on view through Saturday, 17 August  2013 at the gallery’s interim location: 450 Harrison Avenue, Suite 308,  Boston, MA 02118. Parking is available. Please contact the gallery at  617.585.9551 orinfo@acmefineart.com for further information about exhibitions or artists.
