A Message from Kristen -
Much has been written about Cape Cod’s views and light, but with this gathering of artists and art I wish to share something subtler that goes beyond these visual qualities. To me there lies within this place an enduring connection to the land, sea, and sky - and inspiration from the elements of life itself.
So, I invite you to join us this coming July, to take in the wonder of the landscape along with the paintings and sculpture by the exceptional artists in our show. In their own unique way, each artist captures and expresses their observations of Nature’s “Understated Elegance.”
Kind regards, KT
