Docent’s Choice: Personal Favorites from the Museum’s Collection is a new exhibition at the Cape Cod Museum of Art that features selections from the museum’s extensive permanent collection. The show runs through April 7, 2019.

20 of the Cape Cod Museum of Art’s volunteer Docents who are committed to educating visitors about visual art and the CCMoA’s permanent collection have chosen a work from a diversity of styles, ranging from the historical to contemporary, for this new exhibition which is on view through April 7, 2019.

“Our docents range from educators, to artists, to art appreciators, who consistently want to discover more. We’re thrilled that they have the opportunity to share some of their favorite artworks, along with their remarks about the artists and their styles, to enhance our visitors’ experience,” said Benton Jones, Acting Executive Director of CCMoA.

Christina Petruska, who has been the Chair of the Docents for five years said, “We Docents share a passion for art and for the Museum. It’s a pleasure to learn by studying the history of the Cape’s art, and we are inspired by visiting artist’s studios and galleries. We made our choices for this show out of our personal interest in a particular artist or a style of work.”

Petruska chose to highlight the work of artist Sabina Teichman, as she was attracted to the work titled Blue Square for its bold shapes and vibrant color and her change in style over time.

In her introduction to the exhibition, Docent, Elinor Freedman tells us more about the Docents’ favorites, “Some Docents were attracted to art that spoke to the historical origins of art on the Cape and its legacy. The advent of the Provincetown Art Colony at the start of the 20th century gave rise to many innovative artists like modernist Blanche Lazzell and Provincetown Printers, Ferol Sibley Warthen, with her iconic white-line woodblock prints. The history of our Museum itself is honored with the choice of Arnold Geissbuhler, whose work formed the original basis of our museum’s collection.

“Other works were chosen because of the appeal of a particular technique or mood evoked, such as impressionist Arthur Diehl’s capture of the Cape Cod light from Sandwich to Provincetown, Anne Packard’s quiet meditative and nostalgic work capturing serene solitude, Taro Yamamoto’s wide and uneven brush strokes and interaction of color, and Charles Lloyd Heinz‘s energetic gestural style and use of lush vivid color.”
