Stubbs cubist work featured in show

The work of modern painter Kenneth Stubbs will be featured in an exhibition entitled "Shorescapes," which opens with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday at ACME Fine Art and Design, 38 Newbury St., Boston. The show will run through Oct. 4.

This exhibition will feature a group of 20 late-career paintings dating from the 1950s and '60s. The paintings selected for the show by curators James Bennette and David Cowan were chosen to highlight the power and poetry of Stubbs' analytical cubist style. The works are all vintage Cape Cod landscapes.

Stubbs was a student of E. Ambrose Webster in Provincetown in the early 1930s. Webster's hard-edged cubism was an important influence and point of departure for Stubbs, who developed and synthesized his own artistic point of view by employing the fundamental principles of the golden section.

He taught for many years at the Corcoran School ofArt in Washington, D.C., and the Corcoran Gallery was a frequent venue for exhibiting his work. More recent retrospective exhibitions have been hung at the Cape Museum of Fine Arts in Dennis and the Provincetown Art Association and Museum.

The gallery is open from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. For more information, go to www.
