Mystic Arts Center, 9 Water Street, Mystic,
MAAd Men of Mystic is an upcoming exhibition featuring three artists; John Gregoropoulos, Anthony Terenzio, and Paul Zelanski, whose abstract art, while gaining national and international recognition, was also exhibited at MAC and in the region during the 1950’s and 60’s. In an era when MAC was known as the Mystic Art Association, abstract art began to appear in galleries, much to the consternation of those who believed art should represent something tangible. Their styles and approaches to creating art and subject matter varied greatly, and though their work may appear tame in this day and age, back then they were considered MAAd Men.
To celebrate the abstract movement and the spirit of the time, we welcome you to dress the part in 50's, 60's, or 70's style at the opening reception on Thursday, October 2, from 5:30pm – 7:30pm. The shows open September 26th and run through November 8th.
