Now on view: Leo Manso: Collages and Other Works

July 2, 2021 @ 12:00 pm 5:00 pm

ON VIEW: July 2, 2021 – October 17, 2021

Leo Manso (1914-1993) was a significant artist and educator in both New York and Provincetown art circles and helped to foster Provincetown’s reputation as a major art colony. He was the primary force in organizing two important cooperative galleries in Provincetown: the 256 Gallery (1951-1957) and Long Point Gallery (1976-1998), the longest-lived and most influential artist-run gallery in Provincetown’s rich history. Manso and the painter Victor Candell established the Provincetown Workshop (1958-1976), which became what the artist historian Dorothy Gees Seckler described in a 1965 interview for the Archives of American Art as “easily recognized as the most important school at this time” in Provincetown. – From the essay “Leo Manso” by Mary Ellen Abell
