Two new exhibitions open

Milford, NH – New Hampshire Antique Co-op
proudly presents the debut
of two exceptional art exhibitions this spring: Selections 24: Notable Works and
Along the Shore: Paintings
from Cape Ann to Provincetown .
To commemorate the
launch of these exhibitions,
a festive wine and cheese reception will take place on
Saturday, March 30, from 1
to 3 p.m. in the Upstairs
Gallery at New Hampshire
Antique Co-op. All are welcome to visit the galleries
and enjoy an early spring afternoon of fine art and antiques .
Selections 24: Notable
Works showcases a curated
collection of 24 paintings
and sculptures spanning the
19th to 21st centuries. The
roster of artists includes
Theodore Earl Butler, Bruce
Crane, Frederick Mulhaupt,
Augustus B. Koopman,
Charles Herbert Woodbury,
Humbert Howard, Felice
Waldo Howell and others.
Several of the works in
the exhibition have been
sought after by New Hampshire Antique Co-op for
more than 15 years, and
NHAC is pleased to at last
have them on view in the
gallery. Each of these works
of art represents some of
the best work by the artists.
Along the Shore: Paintings from Cape Ann to
Provincetown features
iconic Rockport coastal
scenes, rugged Gloucester
harbor boats, quaint Cape
Cod cottages, and picturesque Nantucket lanes
adorned with classic wisteria arbors. This exhibition
celebrates the iconic scenes
immortalized by artists of
the 19th and 20th centuries,
including Emile Albert
Gruppe, Harry Aiken Vincent, Anthony Thieme,
Pauline Lennards Palmer
and more.
These artists were influential in the Cape Ann and
Provincetown schools of
art, which were founded in
the late 1800s and drew
emerging and established
artists working together.
The schools played a seminal role in the American art scene during the early 20th
century. Nestled in the
growing artistic hamlets of
Provincetown and Cape
Ann, these institutions
quickly became hubs for
American Impressionism,
though they weren’t limited
to this style alone.
As the years progressed,
the schools were also influenced by the growth of Abstract Expressionism, Realism and Modernism,
making them a melting pot
of styles and ideologies.
This eclectic mix allowed
them to evolve and adapt as
vital centers for artistic
learning and innovation.
Today the Cape Ann and
Cape Cod/Islands regions
continue to maintain a vibrant community of artists.
The exhibitions are on
view now through June 30
in the Upstairs Gallery and
Tower Gallery at New
Hampshire Antique Co-op
(323 Elm Street, Milford).
