Alden Gallery presents Sean McCabe and Robert Morgan—Opening on Friday, July 13, 2018

Provincetown, MA: The Alden Gallery will present a two-person show of new work by Sean McCabe and Robert Morgan, opening on Friday, July 13, 2018, from 7 to 9 p.m., at the gallery’s exhibit space at 423 Commercial St. Drinks and refreshments will be served; the gallery is open to the public and free. The show will be on view through July 26.

For this show, Sean McCabe, an artist who is based locally and in Miami Beach, continues to riff on views of MacMillan Wharf, a series he began two years ago, switching from acrylic to oil and creating canvases  that are thick with paint and highlighted by scratched off surfaces. “I use color and line to express both tranquility and kinetic energy,” McCabe says. “These scenes are told through small hints of recognizable elements but often are purposefully vague as to allow a certain degree of personal association.”

San Francisco artist Robert Morgan fell in love with Provincetown many years ago, when he took workshops with Robert Henry, Jim Peters, Gregory Amenoff and others at the Fine Arts Work Center. “Most of my oils and watercolors deal with men in relationship to the outdoors and each other, often at beaches,” says Morgan, who can be found photographing subjects around town in the summer. “The seductive combination of sun, sea, sand, and men’s bodies is one I long to preserve in paint.” The Alden gallery welcomes him back for his 11th annual show.
