Cape Cod Museum of Art Presents Red

The Cape Cod Museum of Art presents Red an exhibition of objects from the CCMA collection that use the color red within the context of the piece. What is it about the color red that draws our attention so much? It is one of the boldest colors, and one of the most expressive. Red symbolizes many extreme emotions, such as guilt, pain, passion, courage and anger. Because of this, artists can use the color in their work as a tool to convey certain feelings. This exhibition will showcase the many ways artists use the color red to communicate a range of different feelings and emotions with the viewer. Included in this exhibition are: Dawn, oil on canvas by Taro Yamamoto; Two Figures/Black and Red, oil/gold leaf on canvas by Selina Trieff; and Janie in the Garden, oil on canvas by Sam Barber.

The Cape Cod Museum of Art’s mission is to collect, conserve, study, interpret and exhibit works by outstanding artists associated with Cape Cod and the Islands. Through its programs, the museum seeks to preserve the artistic heritage of the area and to foster artistic and cultural growth within the individual and the community.
