Reception: March 19, 5:30 - 7 pm
Panel Discussion with the Artists: Saturday, May 9, 2 pm
Sarah Hinckley, one of the six artists in this extraordinary exhibition, has summed up a description for this show:
These six artists have spent their lives coming to the Cape. Their experience, made manifest in their artwork, shows the many unique ways people internalize and respond to nature, and to this specific landscape. Light, reflection, and space are metaphors that could easily describe the unique beauty of the Cape, but are also part of the language utilized in painting. Reflection in particular, could describe the mindset of the artist at work. I hope to begin a community discussion regarding the formal aspects involved in creating a painting, and of the awareness and poetic individuation inherent to this process.

ReMake: Mike Wright Sculptures
March 14 - April 26, 2015
Opening Reception: March 19, 5:30 - 7 pm
Mike Wright creates non-objective assemblages constructed of found painted wood and cast-off materials, inspired by the early Provincetown Modernists Blanche Lazzell, William Freed and Lillian Orlowsky. She considers abstracted architectural elements - man-made structures, vertical supports and formal divisions of space in her creations, and the varied textural qualities of the surfaces. She never paints the wood herself, but incorporates what she finds as part of the total composition. Walking the beaches and town streets to find "pieces of Provincetown" and sorts her collections, then waits and listens for the materials to tell her what it wants to be.
