Castagnacci: Notes from a Quarry
Vendor: Cape Ann Museum Store
By Vincent Castagnacci in conjunction with the Cape Ann Museum
Softcover, 20 pages, includes 19 color images of selected works
This catalog accompanies the exhibit of the same name on display at the Cape Ann Museum from July 23-October 9 2022 and includes selected works from the show. Notes from a Quarry focuses on Castagnacci’s drawings and paintings from the mid-2000s to the present, pulling in earlier works that reflect the strong influence Cape Ann has had—and continues to have—on the artist.
Originally from Providence, Rhode Island, Castagnacci studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and with George Demetrios in Boston and Gloucester in the early 1960s. In 1964, he earned a BFA from Yale, and two years later an MFA from the same institution. It was through his work with Demetrios that Castagnacci came to know and love Cape Ann. For the past 40 years, the Castagnacci family has owned property on the backside of the Cape. The neighborhood, from Folly Cove’s rugged shoreline, out to Halibut Point and up into Dogtown, has provided Castagnacci with boundless inspiration.
