GORDON MASSMAN OPEN STUDIO JUNE 11, 2022

Gordon Massman Studio, 31 Pooles Lane, Rockport, MA 01966

Abstract artist Gordon Massman, in conjunction with Cape Ann Cosmos Media, will host an OPEN STUDIO event in the artist’s 2500 square foot industrial studio warehouse, on June 11, 4:00-7:00pm, at 31 Pooles Lane, Rockport MA. FREE and open to the public. 

Mr. Massman paints large-scale emotional depth charges, taking the viewer on magnificent journeys into the soul. The artist’s statement:

“I paint the unstructured indeterminate character of feeling, irrespective of logic and reason. I reach deep inside the complex nature of urges, desires, wishes, and motivations of the blazing human psyche. In the end, for me, there is only the tube of paint, the canvas, and the sum total of my life. I am blessedly untrained and, therefore, have no guardrails or painterly traditions to restrict my creativity.”

The Matthew Swift Gallery in Gloucester represents Gordon Massman’s work. In addition, the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln, MA, represents eight of his “museum quality” paintings through its corporate lending program.

Before Mr. Massman embraced painting full time, The New York Quarterly Press published seven volumes of Gordon’s poetry. In 2013, his four-hundred-page volume of collected poems was nominated for The Pulitzer Prize. 

Mr. Massman holds an MFA in creative writing from The University of Alaska. He received his undergraduate degree from The University of Texas-Austin in 1972. 

The June 11 Open Studio event will be Gordon Massman’s first unveiling of his work to the public. Attendees should be astounded, moved, and inspired by this vibrant, large-scale production of a uniquely creative outburst of expression. Gordon continues the legendary Rockport art tradition but moves into a new dimension and an unparalleled scale of painting. 

Food, libations, and music will enhance a wonderful experience for all.
