$7,500 towards the acquisition of Untitled, an early 1950s drawing by the painter for the museum’s permanent collection.

Through close attention to border and edge, the shapes depicted in his work reveal the interchangeable nature of positive and negative space.
$22,000 for this small press to publish The Journals of Myron Stout, the fourth in a series on notable artists working in the Provincetown area, with essays by B.H. Friedman, Henry Geldzahler, and Sanford Schwartz. Stout is widely regarded as a “painter’s painter,” who created a small but highly influential body of meticulously executed abstract works.
