Martin & Moby
Exhibition opens January 3rd, 4:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
Moby-Dick Marathon 2014 weekend
Peter Michael Martin’s exhibition of large scale paper cuts was inspired by Herman Melville's Moby-Dick. He developed this work after a lecture given by Dr. Robert Wallace on the collection given to the Museum by Elizabeth Schultz and the resulting Imaging Moby exhibit in 2012.
Melville the Man, cut paper, 36 1/2" x 68 1/2",
Stay tuned for more information on Peter's schedule as our next Artist in Residence.
Peter lives locally where he has summered all his life. He has both a B.S. in Special Education and an M.ED. from Bridgewater State University and is certified in both Education and Art. In 2009 he retired after 35 years as a Special Education teacher. During his last 10 years of teaching, Peter was able to integrate art as an alternate form of assessment for students while co-teaching high school Biology.
Peter’s place as a paper cut artist has been established over the years with representations in both galleries and museums. Many of his designs reflect inspirations found in nature specific to the New England coast. He currently works out of his New Bedford studio in the historic district and is also one of the founding members of Gallery 65 on William Street.
