Merits In Full Color

Each Small Works show the Co|So Art Committee chooses ten exceptional artworks to receive an Award of Merit. Awards of Merit truly reflect the effort, talent and skills of our artist members at the Copley Society of Art and we are proud to present them to our devoted artists every time. The awards given out for Small Works: In Full Color are listed below in alphabetical order.

 

Honors and Prizes in our National Photography Show

An exhibition can’t begin without an opening reception and every opening we have the thrill of announcing awards to artists who created exceptional work. Our juror, Robert Klein, chose four out of the 30 featured photographs to receive the awards of Juror’s Choice, and Third, Second and First Prize. Each work explored the question: what elevates photography to the status of fine art? Below are the artists that achieved that goal at an awardable status.

A Warm Welcome for Artist in Residence

Every year during the month of September, the Copley Society of Art awards the Charles Family Foundation Cape Ann Residency to one of its artist members. The artist is given a whole month to devote to their artwork in the beautiful coastal locale of Cape Ann. This year, Ann Marie O’Dowd was awarded the residency, and for the past week she’s been exploring and painting up a storm. Last Thursday the Charles Family hosted a welcoming party to introduce Ann Marie to the local community.

Iconic Boston Landmarks on View in the Prudential Center

The Prudential Center is both a popular destination and one of the iconic skyscrapers in the Boston city skyline. Passing through this shopping center, you may notice images of other equally famous Boston landmarks on display at the Boston Private Bank! Artist member Matthew McCosco is showing his watercolor paintings of Boston landmarks—from Fairmont Copley to the Old State House—at the Boston Private Bank until November. See some of his paintings on display below!
