(Cotuit, Massachusetts) The artwork of Cotuit artist David Schmid will be on view at the Cahoon Museum of American Art beginning March 18th. The exhibition includes a selection of paintings, sculptures, and 3-D collages from throughout the artist's career. Admission to the Museum is free during the month of March and reservations to visit may be made at cahoonmuseum.org. Schmid was educated at the Massachusetts School of Art and graduated from the California School of Art in 1977. He had an intense drive to create art and he used commonplace materials and discarded household objects he had on hand - scraps of wood, vines, a basketball, old chairs, plastic dinosaurs, shirts, and puzzle pieces. He arranged them in surprising combinations, then applied his carpentry skills, spray paint, and glue to create one-of-a-kind sculptural art. His intuitive compositions transform everyday objects, and his art is packed with soulful energy and raw authentic expression. Despite his talent and artist productivity, Schmid rarely exhibited his work. The exhibition remains on view through April 17. The Museum opens for the season on March 18 and hours are Thursday through Saturday, 10am-4pm. Registration to visit the Museum is requested; drop-bys welcome as gallery space allows. Facial masks and social distancing required. The Cahoon Museum of American Art is located at 4676 Falmouth Road (Rt. 28) in Cotuit, MA.
