MAAd Men of Mystic

Art Exhibits/Openings
MAAd Men of Mystic; Mystic Arts Center, 9 Water Street, Mystic, , 06355

MAAd Men of Mystic is an upcoming exhibition featuring three artists; John Gregoropoulos, Anthony Terenzio, and Paul Zelanski, whose abstract art, while gaining national and international recognition, was also exhibited at MAC and in the region during the 1950’s and 60’s. In an era when MAC was known as the Mystic Art Association, abstract art began to appear in galleries, much to the consternation of those who believed art should represent something tangible. Their styles and approaches to creating art and subject matter varied greatly, and though their work may appear tame in this day and age, back then they were considered MAAd Men.
To celebrate the abstract movement and the spirit of the time, we welcome you to dress the part in 50's, 60's, or 70's style at the opening reception on Thursday, October 2, from 5:30pm – 7:30pm. The shows open September 26th and run through November 8th.

MAAd Men of Mystic

Art Exhibits/Openings
MAAd Men of Mystic; Mystic Arts Center, 9 Water Street, Mystic, , 06355

MAAd Men of Mystic is an upcoming exhibition featuring three artists; John Gregoropoulos, Anthony Terenzio, and Paul Zelanski, whose abstract art, while gaining national and international recognition, was also exhibited at MAC and in the region during the 1950’s and 60’s. In an era when MAC was known as the Mystic Art Association, abstract art began to appear in galleries, much to the consternation of those who believed art should represent something tangible. Their styles and approaches to creating art and subject matter varied greatly, and though their work may appear tame in this day and age, back then they were considered MAAd Men.
To celebrate the abstract movement and the spirit of the time, we welcome you to dress the part in 50's, 60's, or 70's style at the opening reception on Thursday, October 2, from 5:30pm – 7:30pm. The shows open September 26th and run through November 8th.

During the 50’s and 60’s abstract art began to appear in galleries, much to the consternation of those who believed art should represent something tangible. Rifts developed between these different schools of thought and some artists, feeling unwelcomed, stopped exhibiting in the gallery.
