Join us for a reception for award-winning artists John F. Murphy of Orleans and Paul Schulenburg of Eastham. “Traveling Home to Cape Cod, Journeys in Paint” will be on exhibit at oldCape Sotheby’s International Realty in August and September. The original oils capture the area they have chosen as home as well as works inspired by their extensive travels throughout the United States and abroad. Hosted by Jim Trainor, Eric Ehnstrom and Emily Van Giezen, the reception will include live music by popular guitarist Fred Fried, wine and hors d’oeuvres.
John Murphy’s works represent places, scenes and emotions of New England and Europe. Primarily self-taught after succeeding at the Butera School of Art, John attributes his accomplished ability to working with and learning from some of America’s most talented artists including master Robert Douglas Hunter. John has shown successfully in Paris as well as in the United States. He is a member of the Copley Society of Art and his joyful work can be found in many prestigious collections.
Paul Schulenburg is an internationally collected artist whose work has shown in the Hopper House Museum, twice in solo shows at the Cape Cod Museum of Art, and in many group exhibitions at CCMA, Provincetown Art Association and Museum, and Cahoon Museum of American Art. He has appeared over a dozen times in respected national art publications including on the cover of American Art Collector. Schulenburg is a first place prize-winning Copley artist, a juried member of Oil Painters of America and was commissioned by the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum to create a portrait of museum trustee Eliot Forbes. Schulenburg’s oils can be found in prestigious collections throughout the United States, in Canada, Europe and Hong Kong.
Both artists have been featured on TV Channel 5’s Chronicle and all of the region’s magazines and newspapers. Extremely popular, Murphy and Schulenburg are known for their support of the Cape’s art community and their fellow artists. Since 2014, oldCape Sotheby’s International Realty has combined the Cape’s strong art culture and their brand heritage with the Sotheby’s Auction House to display a diversity of wonderful works of art.
