Join us to unveil the 2020 Pops by the Sea’s new poster! Created by Provincetown artist Cynthia Packard and presented by the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod.
Provincetown painter Cynthia Packard has been selected by the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod (AFCC) as the 35th Annual Citizens Bank Pops by the Sea commemorative artist, adding to her already impressive resume. After graduating from the Massachusetts College of Art in 1981 with a Master of Fine Arts degree in sculpture, she moved to Provincetown to pursue a career as an artist.
“I waitressed and started painting, painting, painting,” she recalled, eventually giving up waitressing a little over 25 years ago when she purchased her studio on Bradford Street, not far from the Pilgrim Monument. There she paints a variety of subject matter – still life, landscapes, figures, and children – replete with emotion.
She is currently working on two one-woman shows. The first opened at the beginning of this month at the Chase Young Gallery in Boston to commemorate its 30th anniversary. The second is a six-month exhibit at Yale-New Haven Hospital in Connecticut. The mother of four will soon be traveling to Mexico to paint her third mural in the town of Yelapa. And then she will be tackling her Pops by the Sea piece.
Our event will be the first public unveiling of Cynthia’s new piece. She will be in attendance for the unveiling, and a wine and cheese spread will also be available.
