Samuel Close
Sam is a regional artist who began painting the Cape and Martha’s Vineyard in 2001.
He began his artistic career first as a woodcarver inspired by a Provincetown artisan in the early 1970’s and was very active in the arts and crafts exhibitions thorough the region until 2000.  His evolution to painting first embraced watercolors and eventually acrylics. His work  has been highly regarded for the ultra-realism of much of his works.  His foray into contemporary expressionism and abstracts began in 2011.
Since 2009, Sam has been a featured artist represented by the Kennedy Studio and Gallery on Cape Cod.  On Martha’s Vineyard, Sam is exclusively represented by Island Art / Kennedy Studios in Vineyard Haven.  Sam is a listed artist in the Provincetown Artists Registry, a member of the Provincetown Arts Association and Museum (PAAM), and the Cape Cod Art Association.  His work is included in private and corporate collections through the United States, Canada and Europe.
