The outer Cape Cod landscape has long served as muse for artists from around the world.Each autumn, winter, and spring Cape Cod National Seashore's Salt Pond Visitor Center hosts a series of art exhibitions focusing on the seashore's many varied natural and cultural resources. The seashore is currently accepting applications from artists interested in showing their work in month-long exhibitions between October 2015 and April 2016.Interested artists should contact Brent Ellis at 508-255-3421 ext. 0302, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Artists will be selected in late summer 2015.
Perspectives: Seeing Cape Cod National Seashore Through Art showcases artists who derive inspiration from the seashore's resources and stories, and whose works reflect the natural beauty, cultural significance, and recreational aspects of Cape Cod.Artwork accepted for the series should reflect seashore resources and be acceptable for a diverse family audience. Because 2016 is the centennial of the National Park Service, special attention will be paid to artists whose exhibitions will focus on the mission of the National Park Service, which is to preserve resources unimpaired for future generations, and to provide for public enjoyment. An attempt is made to exhibit various media over the course of a winter, ranging from paintings and photographs, to mixed media and three-dimensional works.
Cape Cod National Seashore Superintendent George Price commented, "The singular beauty of the Cape, combined with its rich heritage, seems to appeal to an exceptional caliber of artist, many of whom we are fortunate to have living as our own neighbors."Salt Pond Visitor Center is located at the intersection of Route 6 and Nauset Road in Eastham. The center is open daily from 9:00 to 4:30 (until 5 in the summer), and features a museum, theater, book and gift store, and expansive views of Salt Pond and Nauset Marsh.
