OPENING RECEPTION FRIDAY AUGUST 26, 7-9 PM
From Friday, August 26 through Thursday, September 8, The Garden Gallery at Little Gorgeous Things will present oil landscape paintings by noted Provincetown artist Michael Rogovsky, commencing with an artist reception on Friday, August 26 from 7-9pm. Michael Rogovsky has been exhibiting his paintings in Provincetown for over 25 years, as well as in New York, Boston, Beverly Hills, Providence, and Philadelphia. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Stedman Art Gallery of Rutgers University, the university collection of the University of Maryland, and the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, as well as numerous private collections in the United States and Canada.
Michael received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Maryland in Art Education, and his Masters of Fine Arts degree from the University of Maryland in Painting and Drawing. Throughout the years, his paintings have been the subject of many reviews in newspapers, magazines, art guides, and radio talk shows. His paintings have also been included in Lois Griffel's book, "Painting the Impressionist Landscape," in an article in "American Artist" magazine, and in the German magazine, "Euros." Two of his works were used on the set of the movie, "Tricks of the Trade." Michael has exhibited in Provincetown since 1977 in galleries including the Provincetown Group Gallery, Rising Tide Gallery, the Phoenix Gallery, and the Cortland Jessup Gallery.
Influenced by the traditions of the Cape School of Impressionism, Rogovsky's work is marked by a bold employment of color and sweeping brush strokes. The paintings in this exhibit concentrate on the natural environment -- the marshes, moorlands, lakes and seascapes of Provincetown depicted in large canvases that reflect the grandeur and majestic scope of the Outer Cape. In 2006, he will receive a one-man show of his work at the Cape Museum of Fine Arts in Dennis, Massachusetts on Cape Cod.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS SHOW WILL END ON SEPTEMBER 8, NOT SEPTEMBER 15 AS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN THE SEASON CALENDAR LISTING.
