ape Cod is incomparable. For a narrow spit of low lying pine forests and endless beaches, it offers a remarkably rich history. The Pilgrims dropped anchor off Provincetown in 1620; today, its historic charm and maritime character, famed seafood and towering dunes attract visitors from around the globe. Rolling bayside down Route 6A, the “Old King’s Highway” whisks you past centuries-old churches under a leafy canopy of ocean-brushed trees, bright inlets of blue-water bays, and colonial era homes gently weathered by the salty sea breeze. It’s not hard to see why artists flock to set up shop along this picturesque peninsula—it’s like nowhere else in the world.

Provincetown has owned a colorful reputation as America’s oldest and longest running art colony since 1899 when painter Charles Hawthorne founded the Cape Cod School of Art. Students and teachers were drawn to the area for its light and its landscapes. In time, it grew to become a year-round arts community of young, aspiring artists working with established mentors. Today, Provincetown is home to a vibrant arts scene with an atmosphere and energy of experimentation, teaching and learning. Integral to the community comprising the Provincetown Art Colony, the Provincetown Art Association and Museum embodies the qualities that make the town an enduring American center

for the arts. Established in 1914, it is now in its Centennial year and serving as Cape Cod’s most widely attended art museum. Located nearby in the East End of town on Bradford St., the Berta Walker Gallery is a point of significant cultural heritage. For 25 years, Berta Walker—whose family established a legacy in the art colony—has exhibited Provincetownaffiliated artists with a variety of styles, and has had the pleasure of representing local legends such as Ross Moffett and Charles Hawthorne. Speaking of local legends on Bradford St., The Provincetown Theater is building on the legacy of Tennessee Williams, Susan Glaspell and Eugene O’Neill in forging its own identity by

CAPE COD promoting and sustaining the performing arts on the Outer Cape. Their state-of-the-art facility is active year-round, hosting or producing community based and professional theater, theater arts classes and a children’s theater program. Along the bustling corridor of Commercial Street, you’ll find an alluring mix of eclectic shops, restaurants and galleries. Gallery Voyeur showcases the large-scale original paintings of artist Johniene Papandreas. Her paintings are created entirely by brush on heavyweight muslin in casein, a paint derived from milk or soy protein, which is not often seen today. This year’s series Angels & Demons explores the emotional triggers behind our pre-conceptions of good and evil and confront the slippery slope on which our presumptions can place us. Galería

Cubana showcases paintings, prints and mixed media works solely by artists currently living and working in Cuba. As Gallery Director, Michelle Wojcik holds one of approximately 30 licenses issued by the U.S. Treasury Department to import artworks from Cuba. Her gallery in Provincetown is the first of two, the other being in Boston’s South End. Julie Heller Gallery is the oldest gallery in Provincetown and is duly committed to the artists who have shaped the town’s cultural past. Housing the most extensive Provincetown art available for purchase anywhere, much of the gallery is hung salon style with the walls filled end to end with a variety of art works. As the second space of Julie Heller Gallery, Julie Heller East is evolving into its own bustling hub of art

in the quiet east end of town, directly across from the PAAM. Artist TJ Walton has lived and painted fulltime in Provincetown since 1989. Her studio gallery on the west end of Commercial Street is where she has garnered a following and strong reputation for being at the forefront of a new movement of self-taught artists who prefer to learn by trial and error. She is well known for her paintings of still life, buffalo, and interpretive and colorful renditions of whale tails. AMP: Art Market Provincetown is a live contemporary gallery space dedicated to exhibiting multi-disciplined work by visual, conceptual and performance artists, filmmakers, and writers. Exhibitions, events, and outdoor installations are cutting-edge, envelope-pushing showcases—a perfect fit for Commercial Street.

A distinguished faculty of prominent artists provides insightful instruction for a number of intriguing classes, many in fun and quirky topics like puppet making with found objects, beginner’s ukulele, and carving a wooden spoon. Wellfleet, found a mere twenty minutes from Provincetown, is a Cape Cod town long known for its thriving arts community and quality galleries. For 23 years, Jeff Soderbergh has created custom sustainable furnishings using reclaimed historical structures. Out of his studio based in Newport, Rhode Island, Soderbergh focuses on creating one sustainable heirloom piece at a time, each one exceptionally crafted using timeless woodworking joinery. Antique wood, metal, glass and stone have all been gracefully transformed into original works of art. His work is on

display at the Cape Cod Seasonal Showroom in Wellfleet. At Harmon Gallery, artists Vincent Amicosante and Traci Harmon-Hay have brought together a group of contemporary artists who add a dash of urban flash to the Wellfleet gallery scene. Amicosante’s magicalrealist paintings will be paired with HarmonHay’s watercolors August 2–21. Founded in 2005 in Portland, Oregon and now located in Wellfleet, Farm Project Space and Gallery is a graphic design studio and contemporary art gallery. It began as a conversation between director/owner Susie Nielsen and friend Christine Gallagher about branching beyond the constraints of expectations for a painter’s work.

NEW BEDFORD The city of New Bedford, located about an hour from the heart of Cape Cod, (and a mere

30 minutes from Providence, RI) is home to a bevy of historical and cultural touchstones. Nicknamed “The Whaling City,” and “The City that Lit the World,” New Bedford was one of the most important whaling and fishing ports in the world during the 19th century and is still today the top fishing port in the country. New Bedford is alive with beaches, history, fine art, live music, and a working waterfront boasting an abundance of summer festivals, antique

Participating venues host art exhibitions, live music, theater skits, educational lectures, and more, all in the name of a special, changing theme highlighting a cultural aspect of the city. This summer, Thursday, July 10 is centered on the theme “Kids Rule,” and Thursday, August 14 is “A Midsummer’s Night Eve.” Home to one of the largest concentrations of artists for its size, quaint and coastal New Bedford is filled with galleries, museums and theaters producing first-rate art works, exhibitions and performances.

Barbosa incorporates cultural contrasts into the many layers of her pieces.
