Cape Cod Museum of Art to Celebrate Bob Staake, Illustrator/Artist/Author, with Major Retrospective:

The Endless Imagination of Bob Staake
July 12 – October 15, 2023

OPENING RECEPTION: July 14 at 5:30. Free and open to the public.

Internationally known for his iconic New Yorker covers, best-selling children’s picture books, award winning illustrations and eclectic art, Bob Staake has always worn a variety of creative hats. From magazines to animation, from publishing to products, from advertising to newspapers, Staake’s prolific art has been used in virtually every form of mass communication.

But Staake is also an accomplished fine artist working in a seemingly limitless array of aesthetic styles and mediums. His paintings, prints, sculptures, objects, assemblages, prototypes and drawings range from the humorous to the ethereal, from the representational to the abstract.

While the Cape Cod-based artist’s work has hung in museums and galleries around the world, this is the first major one-man show dedicated to simultaneously exhibiting both his illustrations as well as fine art pieces. “The exhibition will be filled wall to wall with idiosyncratic paintings, illustrations, objects, prints, posters, sculptures, prototypes, sketches and stylistically diverse art.”

West Branch Capital LLC is the exclusive CCMoA exhibition sponsor of The Endless Imagination of Bob Staake.
