Celebrating Indigenous Peoples Day

We hope you can join us for an exhibition of new works, to meet our newest artist, David Kooharian, and to chat with Paul Batch, Jonathan Earle, Andrea Petitto, Amy Sanders, Paul Schulenburg, and Cleber Stecei who plan to attend our reception from 4:00 to 6:00.

Weather permitting, Paul Batch will be demonstrating oil painting on the gallery lawn.

The exhibition will include portrait studies of Danielle Greendeer, a member of the Mashpee Wampanoag Nation, completed by Paul Schulenburg and others.

A portion of sales from the day will be donated to the Native American Rights Fund, the nonprofit legal organization defending the rights of Native Americans. Collectors will also receive a Palo Santos stick bundle prepared by Marcus Hendricks, an indigenous professional who provides education on the history and traditions of his cultural heritage as well as creates and distributes handmade Wampum jewelry, traditional indigenous items, and culturally sustainable foods.

“Indigenous Peoples’ Day recognizes that Native people are the first inhabitants of the Americas, including the lands that later became the United States of America. And it urges Americans to rethink history.” —Smithsonian Magazine

Addison Art Gallery’s 25th Summer

Painting demonstrations by Maryalice Eizenberg and Amy Sanders from 10:00 to noon, Andrea Petitto from noon to 2:00, and Paul Batch from 3:00 to 4:00. Please join the artists for a toast from 4:00 to 6:00 and treats all day.

For a quarter of a century, the Addison Art Gallery has been honored to represent emerging and master artists from across the United States, Canada and France. Addison is the creator of After Hopper, Before the Masterpieces, Outermost Inspirations, Cape Lore and In Thoreau’s Views. The gallery’s reputation for personal service and community support is unmatched.
After Hopper Artists and collectors flock to Cape Cod from all across the globe, just to see the sites that Edward Hopper painted. Half a century after his death, new generations continue to be inspired by his work and the area that this great American painter chose as his home. Creative people in all fields learn from those who have gone before: while honoring their teachers, they add their own talents and experience, their own selves, and make something new. Acknowledging and ever grateful for Edward Hopper’s influence, “After Hopper” celebrates the artists of today who continue to pursue Hopper’s path in their own unique ways. The Addison Art Gallery invites the public to “After Hopper” events and exhibitions of work created by contemporary artists inspired by Edward Hopper and Cape Cod.
In Thoreau’s Views “Wishing to get a better view than I had yet had of the ocean, which, we are told, covers more than two-thirds of the globe, but of which a man who lives a few miles inland may never see any trace, more than of another world, I made a visit to Cape Cod.” —Henry David Thoreau
“Best Art Gallery Cape Cod” — Cape Cod Magazine
“One of the nation’s leading year-round galleries” American Art Collector magazine

“Housed in a beautiful and quaint old red house, the gallery’s charming appeal draws visitors from around the world to its doors. Once inside, the exciting and resplendent artwork beckons collectors to walk slowly through its warm and cozy interior to take in each and every painting along the way. It is no surprise then, that the Eastern Regional Exhibition was such a huge success.”—Oil Painters of America

Artist’s Statement
“Each painting is a problem to solve, or a puzzle to piece together; a playful, yet serious endeavor, and a celebration of our surroundings. There is no greater reward than knowing that a painting has captivated a friend or a stranger. We see many things everyday with heightened digital clarity, yet original artwork always conveys a sense of mystery and magic for all. I see painting as an unspoken and unwritten way to connect our hearts and minds through depictions of shared experience.” Jonathan McPhillips
