Curated by George Nick, this exhibit is one of the most significant undertakings to date for the Concord Art Association. For this show, Nick selects a range of artists from legendary to mid-career painters, assembling more than 70 paintings from more than 50 artists. He comments, “The goal of the show is to celebrate the tradition of careful observation as the basis for an important aspect of American painting and to emphasize the remarkable variety of imagery it has generated.”
In addition to the paintings that will be available for purchase, work has been
generously loaned by the Driscoll Babcock Gallery, Hirschl & Adler Gallery, Pennsylvania
Academy of the Fine Arts, Williams College Museum of Art, Bowdoin College Museum of
Art and the Hirshhorn Museum, as well private collections in Boston and New York.
This exhibition is dedicated to Edwin Dickinson, a mentor from the past, and to all artists contemporary or otherwise, who devote their lives to their art.
