Capriccio 2011

Ca-pric-ci-o, Noun

A lively piece of music. Short and free in form. A painting or other work of art representing a fantasy or a mixture of real and imaginary features.

The weeks following Labor Day are known as Capriccio. Capriccio is a town-wide festival of art, music, poetry, ballet, live theater, concerts, gallery tours and architectural tours. It's a time to pause from the manic summer and enjoy the arts.

Ogunquit has long been known as an artists' haven since Charles Woodbury established the art colony over 100 years ago. Woodbury's legacy endures, with two museums, bustling galleries and other arts that were attracted to the tiny hamlet of Ogunquit.
Artists are often attracted to Ogunquit because of the wild beauty of the crashing waves, brilliant sun against the soft sand, and the rocky coastline. Both  Edward Hopper and Georgia O'Keefe, painted on The Marginal Way and Perkins Cove.
This year's Capriccio there is an added bonus with spectacular weather, and minimal crowds........!
