The Artsy Edge of America
Provincetown, Massachusetts. Do you know it? Tip of Cape Cod. A vibrant community that explodes during the summer as visitors from all around the world descend on this former fishing community. It has it’s regular visitors, and those that go on their annual "P-Town” holiday. It’s a very artistic community, with a strong art gallery scene. Lot’s of great restaurants and things to do and see.
I just got back, after spending 10 days there. Part vacation; Mostly work, as I delivered 11 paintings to the gallery I work with there.
Since being back, I’ve had a chance to reminisce about the times I’ve been there, and my special connection to that curious peninsula, having first been there in 1989. Here are a bunch of photos…
During my early visits, I’d spend time visiting the galleries, dreaming of some future day that one of them might feature my work.
Of course, we had many friends up there, including artists who showed at the local galleries.
Then one trip, things kind of fell into place, and all of a sudden, I had a gallery that was eager to work with me! So, after years of visiting just for fun, I had a new reason to also visit: my artwork.
Over the years, I've had many different experiences here, and my fondness for the town deepens as my work continues to be appreciated by a larger audience with every passing season.
1989, huh. Hard to believe I’ve been coming here for 30 years!
Three more shots to round out this silly little blog about this amazing, special place…
Well, I hope you enjoyed this little trip down memory lane!
