Twenty-one in Truro will celebrate its 21st anniversary

with an exhibition / reception on Sept. 28th at

Truro Center for the Arts

10 Meetinghouse Road, Truro


Twenty-one in Truro is an organization of professional women artists. Each artist has had a successful career art and several are teachers or designers as well. The group exhibits together annually at museums and art centers on Cape Cod as well as some off-Cape in New England. Their works are diverse in subject and style; their common bond is pursuit of a creative life in the visual arts. Every year for the past 21 years the group has held a week-long retreat to Truro, to paint, to share ideas, and to support one another. Originally the group met at cottages on Corn Hill, but for most of their years to the present they come together to the Sladeville Cottages on the Pamet River.

Come see our art and enjoy refreshments

In Response: TWENTY-ONE IN TRURO Celebrates 21 Years

— By Judith A. Curtis

“In keeping with the traditions of regional artist collectives such as California’s Society of Six, Canada’s Group of Seven and, more especially, Pennsylvania’s popular women’s group the Philadelphia Ten, ‘Twenty-One in Truro’ has evolved over the last two decades from the humble beginnings of a group of friends painting together, to a broader format offering diversity of vision and media by some of the most talented women artists of Cape Cod.” — read more (PDF)
