Scott Prior: Illuminations
March 18 – May 30
Scott Prior: Illuminations features paintings, prints, and drawings by contemporary artist Scott Prior. Spanning five decades of Prior’s artistic career, the exhibition features the artist’s work in genres of portraiture, still life, and landscape, including new work and scenes of Cape Cod. Prior’s realistic paintings are characterized by fine detail, striking colors, and compellingly arranged compositions. His virtuoso artworks capture the beauty of everyday settings and moments, with an emphasis on the illuminating effects of light. Curated by Cahoon Museum Director, Sarah Johnson, PhD, Scott Prior: Illuminations draws over 35 artworks from the permanent collections of the Cahoon Museum of American Art, deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, New Britain Museum of Art, Fidelity Investments, Wellington Management, and 10 private collections. The exhibition is sponsored by a Trustee of the Cahoon Museum of American Art.

David Schmid
March 18 – April 17
This exhibition of visionary Cotuit artist David Schmid (1952-2020) includes paintings, sculptures, and 3- D collages by a local artist who rarely exhibited his work. Schmid had an intense drive to create art and he used commonplace materials and discarded household objects he had on hand - scraps of wood, vines, a basketball, old chairs, plastic dinosaurs, shirts, and puzzle pieces. He arranged them in surprising combinations, then applied his carpentry skills, spray paint, and glue to create one-of-a-kind, sometimes funky, sculptural art. His intuitive compositions transform everyday objects, and his art is packed with soulful energy and raw authentic expression.

Jackie deRuyter | Kate Nelson: Shape Shifters
April 22 – June 5
Brewster artists Jackie deRuyter and Kate Nelson present their most recent abstract paintings and sculptures in a colorful, bright, and uplifting exhibition. deRuyter’s sculptures are created by using an innovative process that transforms flat painted fabric into dynamic three-dimensional forms. Painter Kate Nelson pours her feelings about nature and the outdoor life into energetic abstractions as she fuses the outer world with her inner landscape and spirit. With the artwork displayed side by side, the exhibition explores the intuitive roots of each artists’ vision and highlights the distinctions and similarities of their deeply personal artistic expressions.
