About Bill Evaul

A Provincetown artist since 1970, William Evaul produces oil paintings and white-line woodblock prints as well as works on paper: drawings, watercolors and monotypes and monoprints. He employs a vibrant color palette and a kind of figurative expressionism to create a wide variety of images including musicians, New York skylines, nudes, wine bottle still lifes and a lively fauvist/cubist series called "Dancing Houses." As an educator, curator and art consultant in the field of 20th Century Art, Evaul conducts art workshops in white-line wood cut printmaking, slide lectures on Provincetown Art History and organizes exhibitions. Currently Bill Evaul has a one person exhibition at the Cape Cod Museum of Art titled Song and Dance. For more info see click HERE or go to www.evaul.com

About Peter Michal Martin

“While always an artist within, I had a life as a teacher for 35 years, retiring in 2009 the year I began being an artist full time. I was a Special Education teacher for 25 years with the Dennis-Yarmouth Public Schools in South Yarmouth, Massachusetts. In addition to my commitment as an educator, I served the local community on the Board of Directors of The Cape Cod ARC for 6 years and on the Board of the Cape Cod Therapeutic Riding Clinic for 2.

My last 10 years as a teacher were spent at the Old Rochester Regional High School in Mattapoisett, MA. I was able to co-teach art as an alternate form of assessment tool for students within High School biology. I served my local community on the Board of Directors for the Mattapoisett Historical Society for 6 years.

I am an artist and educator and I am on a journey. I was inspired years ago when I attended an informal lecture by Dr. Robert Wallace on an art collection inspired by Moby Dick and donated to the New Bedford Whaling Museum by Elizabeth Schultz. Dr. Wallace is the Regents Professor of English at NKU and one of the world’s most renowned Melville scholars. My collection is not about illustrating Melville’s story but about how it made me think. We all gather visual images about places we are going, people we will meet, and stories that we read or hear. With my art I hope to present the viewer with the opportunity to make some of their own personal connections.

I believe that imagery is within me all the time. Without effort it just happens and the alignment of those subconscious images turn into a vision. Triggers can be as simple as the way I look at something, a passage I read or a physical experience. I would say most of my tyvek /paper cuttings and print work is a direct result of this.”
