Rockport Art Association & Museum National show
On Saturday, Nov 23, 2019 the Rockport Art Association and Museum will be opening the Cape Ann regions first-ever national fine art show! The RAA&M National 2019 artwork submissions came from artists across the United States in a diverse number of media: drawing, mixed media, collage, digital art, photography, sculpture, painting, & printmaking. Nationally recognized artists Tom Hughes and Jo Ann Rothschild juried the exhibition, selecting 160 works of art out of nearly 700 entries from most every corner of the country. Entrants ranged from nationally-recognized fine art photographers whose work has been featured in the The New York Times, sculptors whose works have ignited firestorms of controversy, and celebrated painters belonging to the National Academy.
The exhibition has been generously sponsored by the Institution for Savings, and over $7,000 in prize money has been contributed for awarding to outstanding works by a number of public and private entities, including Cape Ann Savings Bank, BankGloucester, Mass Credit Union, iartcolony, and Security First Mortgage Funding LLC.
The RAA&M National marks Cape Ann’s return to national prominence as a center for the fine arts after languishing for too many decades in general anonymity. As well, it marks a bold new chapter in the history of the Rockport Art Association & Museum as this institution leads the charge towards helping restore this region’s reputation as a center for cutting-edge fine art that is relevant far beyond our granite shores.
