EVENT SCHEDULE


ANIMAL ATTRACTION

An Animal Themed Benefit Art Show
by Nancy Minnigerode
May 26 - July 2nd




A meet-the-artist opening reception and presentation by Mills River Rescue Animal Sanctuary takes place on Thursday, May 26th from 5:00-6:30. The event is free and open to the public.

ANIMAL ATTRACTION features paintings, drawings and pastels from local award winning artist and illustrator Nancy Minnigerode with animals taking center stage in every composition. When asked what she wants the audience to know Nancy said: “Animals have always been “it” for me. From frogs and salamanders to horses and farm animals, from guinea pigs and squirrels to goats and wild fauna, I love them all! I want to share some of my favorites!”

As a veterinary technician for many years Nancy developed a real love of animals. She has a degree in Visual Arts and completed a course of study in Natural Science Illustration at Rhode Island School of Design in 2011.

The artist is donating a portion of all sales from the exhibit to benefit Mills River Rescue Animal Sanctuary located in Marstons Mills. They are a non-profit organization dedicated finding forever homes for horses and ponies in need.




FLYING COLORS

A Colorful Group Art Exhibition at Woodruff’s Art Center
July 7 - August 13



FLYING COLORS features a combination of paintings and fabric art by ten Cape Cod artists and one UK artist. An opening reception will take place on Thursday, July 7th from 5:00-6:30pm. The event is free and open to the public.

Color abounds in this eclectic array of art with variety to suit anyone’s fancy. A bright color statement is made with “Postcard from Sweden”, a 62”x72” fiber wall hanging/quilt by Lorraine Haynes of Mashpee, contrasting with a petite, delicate oil painting still life with grapes and a pear by Cynthia Cruz of Waquoit.

Color explodes in loose layers and textures in an acrylic abstract painting by Arthur Tsicoulias of Mashpee, while color quietly saturates a detailed acrylic painting of zinnias by Candice Ronesi of Forestdale with light softly shining through a purple vase. Color literally flys out of UK artist Roger Bigg’s gouache painting that features more than twenty colorful parrots in flight through a brilliant green forest.

Other artists exhibiting are Annette MacAdams of Sandwich, Gunjan Laborde of East Falmouth, James Musto of North Falmouth, Betsy Payne Cook of Mashpee, Ric Haynes of Mashpee and Amy Rice of West Yarmouth.
