The amazing variety in the collections of The Art Complex Museum in Duxbury, Massachusetts will be on display in “Recently Acquired” beginning on May 18. The exhibition features the museum’s most recently acquired artwork. Although some of the work represents the four major categories of the collection; Shaker objects, works on paper, American paintings and Asian art, a greater number of pieces fall into new areas such as studio furniture, contemporary ceramics and photography. Many of these were bought, for the most part, from living artists who have exhibited at the museum. Some were purchased from other artists, auctions and galleries; other artwork was acquired by donation.
More than eighty works are included in this exhibit. They represent a great sampling of the work being created, today, by contemporary artists. Included are paintings by Eric Aho, George Nick, Phyllis Berman and Aaron Fink; ceramics by Richard Bresnahan, Malcolm Wright and Chris Guston; studio furniture by Mark del Guidice and Dale Broholm; and Photography by Jesseca Ferguson and Walter Crump. The exhibition will run through September 7 with an opening reception scheduled for May 18, 1:30 until 3:30 p.m.
Sep. 9 and 16 rehearsal dates
The Choral Art Society of the South Shore, now in its 56th season, begins rehearsals for its fall concert on Tuesday, September 9th and 16th at 7:30—9:30 pm at the First Trinitarian Congregational Church, 381 Country Way, Scituate. Prospective new members are welcome to join us. We are a non-auditioned community chorus. We need voices for all parts – soprano, alto, tenor, and bass. The ability to read music is not essential, but is helpful. You do need to be able to “carry a tune in a bucket.” If you are not sure of your singing abilities, our director can help you determine your voice part. All members grow in musical ability and learn a great deal about healthy vocal technique and choral music.
On December 7th at 4:00pm we will perform “Here We Come A-Caroling”, which will feature Benjamin Britten’s Ceremony of Carols, accompanied by harp, and Conrad Susa’s Carols and Lullabies: Christmas in the Southwest, accompanied by instrumental ensemble, and other festive carols, and our ever-popular sing along.
We hope you will stay with us for the spring season, when we perform with full orchestra and professional soloists celebrating our Artistic Director and Conductor’s Danica Buckley’s 10th anniversary with us! We’ll be singing Puccini’s Mass for Four Voices and Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy.
Come be a part of a friendly, wonderful, exciting, growing community chorus!
