A Moment: Shirley Mossman Nisbet & Betty Carroll Fuller
The paintings and drawings of Shirley Mossman Nisbet and Betty Carroll Fuller emphasize a decidedly contemporary point of view by combining the sensibilities of both the AbEx and Minimalist traditions. This exhibition is the culmination of many years of friendship and professional artistic endeavors which included the frequently discussed idea of possibly exhibiting together. The artists work is firmly rooted in the working methods of the abstract expressionists.

Sweet Spot: Cape Cod Art Center Camera Club
This exhibit will display the wide range of skilled work created by local fine art photographers who represent the Cape Cod Art Center’s Camera Club. While many shoot a variety of subjects, most members have work that is recognizable as that photographer’s special forte, or sweet spot. Each artist will hang two works that demonstrate one portion of their portfolio. Photos included range from landscapes to abstracts, shots taken in all kinds of light, and from extremely realistic to digitally manipulated. Artists represented range from relative newcomers to master artists in the camera club, which meets twice a month to share images and learn about the various aspects of digital photography.

Five Focal Points
“Five Focal Points” is an exhibit showcasing the diverse photography styles of five Cape Cod artists Mikael Carstanjan, Mark Chester, Julia Cumes, Rowland Scherman and Frank Winters.

Escapees from a Little Black Book: Sculpture by Neil Grant Neil
Grant is an English sculptor who makes fine art through a slightly different lens. An award winning artist, he combines technical skill with storytelling and humor. Grant lives in Cape Cod, where he sculpts out of his studio and teaches classes and workshops out of Cotuit Center for the Arts and other arts centers.

The art gallery is open 10 AM to 4 PM Monday through Saturday. Exhibits may also be viewed during evening performances. Admission to the gallery exhibits, opening reception, and artist talks are free; no advance registration is required.
