Herman Maril: An Artist’s Two Worlds

Maril Book Evite_v5
Sunday December 4th at the University of Maryland, University College UMUC Inn and Conference Center Room 0105, the Director of the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, Christine McCarthy. will be leading a discussion on the work of American artist Herman Maril.
My father Herman Maril, who died in 1986, was born in Baltimore, Maryland, which he made his lifelong home, but spent his summers on Cape Cod in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Thus part of the inspiration for the title of the discussion, “An Artist’s Two Worlds” stems from work inspired by two primary geographic locations, the seashore and small town vs. the city. But there was his role as artist and teacher, his leadership in the arts community and his love of family which also factored into the inspiration for Maril’s work. Available will be copies of the just released hardback book His Own Path: The Spirit and Legacy of Herman Maril.
The event begins at 3:00 p.m. and prospective attendees are asked to RSVP to www. umuc.edu/art/. Both my brother David Maril, who wrote an introduction for the book which contains essays by art historians David W. Scott and Howard E. Wooden,and myself will be there. If you are a Herman Maril fan, we hope to see you next Sunday!
