Long known for his printmaking expertise and teaching, as well as a formidable painter, this exhibition features a number of black and white line drawings of plants and flowers by Michael Mazur. Much like the work chosen for Pat de Groot’s exhibition, these drawings have not been exhibited before, and will give people a wonderful opportunity to see and learn about this remarkable aspect of Michael’s work. He always drew, and always observed the natural world around him, often in the intimacy of his own gardens. The observation and depiction of nature goes back to the beginning of man’s recorded mark making, and meanders through Chinese landscape painting, Japanese woodcuts, Dutch painting, Rembrandt, and van Gogh, through Ellsworth Kelly and Neil Welliver. It is at the core of an artist’s being in the world. These drawings by Michael Mazur will demonstrate a facet of this artist’s work that has been very little seen in Provincetown. Michael’s work is in countless private and public collections. The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, has recently acquired the complete set of Mazur's Dante monotypes.
