Centerville, MA -- The Arts Foundation of Cape Cod has named local painter Paul Schulenburg this year's guest artist for the 28th Annual Citizens Bank Pops by the Sea concert on the Hyannis Village Green, featuring the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra, with conductor Keith Lockhart.
Mr. Schulenburg has been commissioned to create this year's commemorative painting and limited edition lithograph, which will be unveiled at a reception in his honor later this Spring. The original painting will be auctioned at a special VIP reception after the concert.
Kevin Howard, Executive Director of the Arts Foundation said, "It is a distinct pleasure to welcome Paul Schulenburg into the incredible group of talented artists who have created work specifically commemorating Pops by the Sea. Paul's work is highly sought-after and his use of light and depictions of figures and moments in time are highly evocative. We are all greatly anticipating Paul's interpretation for this year's event."
Paul Schulenburg is an internationally collected artist whose work has shown in the Hopper House Museum, twice in solo shows at the Cape Cod Museum of Art, and in many group exhibitions at CCMA, Provincetown Art Association and Museum, and Cahoon Museum of American Art. He has appeared over a dozen times in respected national art publications including on the cover of American Art Collector. Schulenburg is a first place prize-winning Copley artist, a juried member of Oil Painters of America and was commissioned by the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum to create a portrait of museum trustee Eliot Forbes. His work is available on Cape Cod at the Addison Art Gallery in Orleans.
Limited edition prints of the commissioned work will be available during the Citizens Bank Pops by the Sea concert, Sunday, August 11, 2013, on the Hyannis Village Green. The annual concert features the only Cape Cod appearance of the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra.
