MICHAEL MAZUR: SELECTED WORKS
Opening: Friday July 31 6 to 8 PM
Hudson D. Walker Gallery
One of Provincetown’s most revered painters and printmakers, Michael Mazur (1935-2009) participated in hundreds of group and solo exhibitions nationally and abroad. His work is included in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MoMA, the Whitney, and the Metropolitan Museum, among many others. He was a faculty member at RISD and Brandeis University, and a visiting artist at Harvard’s Carpenter Center. At the Fine Arts Work Center, he was Co-Chair of the Board and a member of the Visual Arts Committee for many years. This solo exhibition will feature monotypes, drawings and pastels from the artist’s estate.
In 1990 Michael Mazur inaugurated the New Provincetown Print Project, bringing nationally known and important local artists to the Work Center to produce limited edition prints that broke new artistic ground while providing critical support for the Work Center’s core fellowship program. This year’s Annual Auction on August 15th celebrates Michael Mazur and the 25th anniversary of this influential project.
