John Paul Caponigro’s "Open Studio | New Work 2014” annual exhibit will take place one weekend only — Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 2 and 3 — at Caponigro Arts, 73 Cross Road.

This annual event unveils new highlights from the artist's recent international travels north of the Arctic Circle and south of the Antarctic Circle with stops along the way in Iceland, Argentina, Morocco and Namibia. Amid images of glowing auroras, crashing glaciers, colliding icebergs, thundering waterfalls, smoldering volcanoes, shimmering salt flats and shifting dunes, visitors will find the oldest desert, the largest salt flat, the windiest continent, the fastest moving glaciers, the wildest seas and more.

This is a rare opportunity to view the artist's new work presented in his own private studio/gallery; come enjoy prints, drawings, paintings, books and conversations with the artist. Many of the exhibited items have never been seen before, and some are often not made public.

“Open Studio | New Work 2014” will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with a talk by the artist at 2 p.m. Afterward, visits by appointment are available. For more information including directions and previews, visit or email
