The CONCORD ART ASSOCIATION will open an exhibition of work by 60 plus
member artists on Tuesday, May 4th, through Friday May 14th, 2004. This is a
preview of work of artists who will be donating work to our annual fund-raising auction, Paint the Town, which will take place on the evening of Saturday, May 15th. In addition to art that is created before the day of the event, some of these artists will set out to find micro-views of our town that they will paint on the day of the auction. The Preview Show will give the auction attendees a chance to get familiar with the artists that
will be represented.

Since 1917, the Concord Art Association has been a center for the arts in Concord, Massachusetts. Founded by the American Impressionist painter, Elizabeth Wentworth Roberts, the Association moved to the circa 1750 John Ball House purchased by Ms. Roberts in 1922. There, Daniel Chester French, renowned for the Minuteman Statue at the Old North Bridge in Concord and the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., was elected the first president of the Association, and a sky-lighted gallery was installed on the second floor of the colonial house at 37 Lexington Road. Under the leadership of these two Concord artists, the Association flourished in the 1920s with paintings and sculpture exhibited by Monet, Hassam, Cassatt, Sargent, Beaux, Benson, Dewing, Hoffman, Grafly, Davies, Bellows and many others.

In the Articles of Incorporation of the Concord Art Association, the founding members of the Association organized it for the purpose of “the encouragement, promotion and advancement of art and art exhibitions; to establish and maintain in the Town of Concord an art museum; to acquire and dispose of works of art.” The purpose continues today. The Art Association has over 400 artist members and mounts from ten to twelve exhibitions every year (member and open competitions, retrospectives and group shows) along with smaller one person shows. Classes, workshops and panel discussions, lectures and trips bring artists and patrons together from the entire New England area. The Association also maintains a small permanent collection.

With the perennial success of our fund-raiser, Paint The Town, the Concord Art Association continues to experience exciting growth. We look forward to the support of our members, as well as the community at large, so that we may continue to offer studio classes, lectures, exhibitions, trips and a variety of shows that excite and inspire the creative spirit in all of us.
