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.
