Cotuit Center for the Arts will hold an opening reception for two new exhibits in the Galleries, Edith Vonnegut’s “Undaunted” and “Cape to Cape” in collaboration with Rocky Neck Art Colony Saturday, June 17, from 3 to 5 p.m. at the arts center, 4404 Falmouth Road/Route 28 in Cotuit.
Cotuit Center for the Arts’ gallery specialist Michelle Law and Executive Director David Kuehn will present a talk beginning at 3:30 p.m. with artist Edie Vonnegut discussing her work.
Vonnegut has exhibited in galleries across the United States, wrote and illustrated the book “Domestic Goddesses.”
In her artist’s statement, Vonnegut says, “One of my aims in painting is to portray women in heroic terms because I think we have been portrayed incorrectly from biblical times on… Essentially, I am here to herald the unheralded. The women, mothers, housewives, essential workers. I wish to celebrate the ones who never get any recognition or honors for the daily relentless work they do… I am essentially an illustrator telling stories and proud of it.”
Admission to the galleries is always free. For more information, visit artsonthecape.org or call the Box Office at 508-428-0669, ext. 0.
