LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER
Special thanks to:
Many features attract tourists, en masse, to Provincetown– the sea, an embracing natural landscape, otherwordly golden light, a cultural history as art colony and fishing village, Fellini-esque moments and quaint architecture and narrow streets. A lovely summer's day at Herring Cove may attract hordes similar in numbers to the flocks that land on St. Mark's Square in Venice. Yet, remarkably, on that same day, in this same place, a single person might find herself somewhere else in peaceful solitude. We who live here, or visit often, all have sacred places. Some more secret (or meaningful) than others. It seems all the wonders that universally tether us to this town still make for distinct stories and unique memories.
Michelle Mikulski Barbara Cohen, Irene Lipton, Elizabeth Winston, Provincetown Arts Press, Jim Bakker, Jim Zimmerman, PAAM, Heather Bruce, Karen Stray Nolting, Kelly Hammer, the wonderful Michelle Mikulski and the ever-amazing Dave Mitchell.

To that end, multi-media artist Barbara Cohen, visitor since 1973, part-time resident since 1993, was inspired to pair her iconic painted Polaroids (just one artistic outlet) with collected reflections on favorite Provincetown places by an eclectic array of long-time visitors and residents. The result, Our Provincetown: Intimate Portraits, published last year by Provincetown Arts Press, reminds us of our shared love–yet unique communion–with this alluring place. As Cohen writes in her introduction, “It has been one of the greatest pleasures of my life to create this community testament to the beauty and specialness of this small town, and its endless capacity to evoke intimacy and deep connection.”

OUR TOWN The Flats GAIL MAZUR
At a loss today for what to do I walk out on the flats which appear
of hermit crabs carrying newly abandoned homes heavily across the wet sands, always looking out
reliably when the tides predictably go out, a true fact I’ve learned absurdly late in my life
for more capacious, more hospitable emptied shells. Ceramic sandscoured shards of cast-off
for I grew up on a river . . . Now in warm morning sunlight, at mid-day or evening,
plates, or bottles once tossed off long lost ships, their wet sheen frosted beautifully by the tide’s abrasions,
the world keeps changing, fluctuating, so much unpredictable . . . and when I’m at a loss, these particulars
the bowl of a white clay pipe, old flotsam gifts of another century’s shipwreck still returning, emblems of our
of life renewing in tidal pools help me forget what I’ve thought I’d lost, I read odd
obscure histories. Now, a sweet wonderment of spotting my friend Marian this late September morning in her navasana
calligraphic messages odd invisible creatures leave in their quickening travels, I follow
pose on a neighbor’s deck, her cotton shirt luminous, her smile beatific, two of us at peace in the universe we share . . .
a minnow’s rhythmic wriggle, I can see ribboning trails of sea worms whose genus I keep unlearning, 20 | provincetownartguide.com
Gail Mazur’s eighth collection of poetry is Land’s End: New and Selected Poems (2020). She lives in Provincetown and Cambridge, MA, and most days walks on the flats (or wishes she was). She is founding director of the Blacksmith House Poetry Series in Cambridge. From Our Provincetown: Intimate Portraits by Barbara E. Cohen. Excerpted with permission of Provincetown Arts Press.

OUR TOWN Tasha Hill
When would I have first wandered there during my years living in town, that dirt road branching off Howland Street that leads to Tasha Hill, marked only by a weathered bouquet of mailboxes and, on trash night, a motley collection of dented cans and cracked plastic bins? I don’t remember that first time, or which of its scattered wood dwellings I was first inside. Each one different, yet recognizable as part of a whole, and kin to the shacks that stand in the dunes of the Province Lands—weathered wood, salvaged windows, odd angles— unlikely houses alive with something more than just the stories that are told about them. They crouch in the scrub pine or against the dune or flank the clearing at the top of the hill: one, whose low fence and creaking gate protect a sprawling garden, stands across from a taller structure, whose gabled roof peaks above a sleeping loft with a ladder-like staircase. From the clearing at the top of the hill, a footpath leads to the big house, the one where Rose “Sunny” Tasha—matriarch of the Tasha clan, best friend of poet of the dunes Harry Kemp, Provincetown legend— lived out her old age, burying cans of food in the yard in case of emergency, sleeping with a shotgun next to her bed that she was prone to firing into the ceiling if awoken from sleep. Or so goes the version of the story that I once heard. I’ve heard, too, that Sunny built the smallest of the shacks on the hill for Harry Kemp, homeless but for his one-room shack in the dunes in his own old age. Even now, the place feels otherworldly, that it still holds something in its gnarled embrace that we’ve now nearly lost in Provincetown. Tales of it can still be heard, if you listen in the right places. Sunny’s youngest, Paul, still rides his horses bareback through the woods out to the dunes at dawn, someone told me not long ago. Perhaps, like the town, this is part of what makes the place what it is: the extent to which its history has been distorted by tale and rumor is irrelevant; story itself is the point.

OUR TOWN Laughter in the Sand RACHEL ELIZA GRIFFITHS
It is not strange for me to think of Provincetown as a place where, during my visits, I am mostly offshore. There is the initial sense of the mind narrowing to that single road I first encountered years ago in 2006 and the way a journey will continue through you as a vein does, narrowing and expanding in tandem with breathing when your body feels itself to be free and safe. In Provincetown, my breathing changes. My mind and body erupt with wonder and freedom. I become a mass of senses, endowed with weight and ease, not unlike my most beloved companions, which are the humpbacks in summer. For nearly fifteen years, I’ve sailed on different vessels each summer to listen to their songs and to the song of my heart that is inaudible on land. During this journey, which is spiritual for me, the sight of each lighthouse fills me with a solace that is part of the joy I will store in my body to endure winters and my lives elsewhere. Going out on the water the intensity of this joy forms a harbor in me. I was in my twenties when I first arrived, on a scholarship residency, to the Work Center. Immediately, Provincetown felt like “home,” and the formality of being a resident or guest was replaced by my certainty that I was an artist and that I would live amongst artists. These artists dazzled me with their gardens, their gallery windows and open studios, their worship of jowly, well-dressed bulldogs, their voices singing a cappella in perfect soprano while roller-skating down Commercial Street for no reason except joy, and that famous unabashed cheekiness, that encouraged me to give serious thought to how delight, fellowship, and pleasure were part of the poet’s calling. Now, in my forties, I can point to benches or trees along Commercial Street where I once dreamt, curled up in love or in my own tears, and how some bear in a mermaid costume might blow me a kiss and shout one word like “Beautiful” or “Honey, that bitch doesn’t deserve you!” I hear my footfall on the rocks in the courtyard of the Work Center and remember how I once sat in the cool night sand and watched the moon with sister poets, Natalie, Brenda, and Robin after we danced to Marianne Faithfull at Kate and Urvashi’s. How we women could love ourselves so brilliantly and viscerally. That evening was a marvelous feast as are so many of my memories of friendships in Provincetown. I’ve left some of my laughter there in the sand. 54 | provincetownartguide.com
It is the view of my life that appears on the water that I seek. From the water, the perspective of shoreline is about the discovery of my own edges and inner cities—a survey flecked with time, grief, and celebration. I can only trace its shape, like the shape of the humpback just below its circle of breath. Whether I am bobbing alone in the waves or shrieking in delight at the sight of a gorgeous breach, I intuit the fortune I feel in this place. So I never say good-bye to this world, aware that its humor, its beauty, and its rituals offer me a way to endure difficult geographies within and beyond. However, let’s be clear: homemade ice cream, oysters, love, solitude—all taste better in Provincetown.

OUR TOWN Love Shack BARBARA E. COHEN
A collector friend suggested I contact her mother-in-law, Tam Hapgood, who rented a small room above a garage on Allerton Street to artists and writers. She said it would change my life if I spent a summer in Provincetown. Tam was in her 90’s, a tough old geezer. “It’s $2,000 for one, $2,500 for two, for the season, cash up front, make up your mind by tomorrow, and no eating from the raspberry bushes in the yard,” she said. The eight-by-ten foot room came with a toilet in a tight, slant-roofed closet, a two-burner propane stove, a carton-size fridge, and a lovely outdoor shower covered overhead with vines of pink clematis. A mustard-yellow table surrounded by three worn-out chairs hugged a picture window overlooking a tall, blossoming lilac bush. A single bed was crammed in the corner beneath two windows that faced Kim Rilleau’s leather shop. I moved in May of 1993, feeling a chilling breeze but warmed from the bright spring sun. At the crack of dawn, I was on my bike every morning with my SX-70 Polaroid. The streets were empty, and I photographed everything in sight: shops, restaurants, bars, historical landings, the dunes, beaches, the pier. It was a deeper introduction to Provincetown; before, I’d only been a tourist, though I’d visited in summer for more than twenty years. I had no idea people actually lived here. The Polaroids of the town became my signature, and the Love Shack became my home. I lived there for three years, until I moved to a house on the bay with my honey, Honey. She died unexpectedly in 2007. My life changed again. I found my way back to the Allerton Street compound, where one could often find a band of older women wrapped in colorful beach towels after a cold exhilarating swim, rushing to take a hot outdoor shower in a garden of Eden. This garret of a tree house shack still is my home, with new solar panels, and a family of raccoons trying to evict me. 66 | provincetownartguide.com

Snail Road Dune Walk VICTORIA REDEL
Early mornings or just before the tilt toward darkness, I park in the pull-off. Here, the hem of scrub woods. A scrabble of shrub, vine, and tree. Here, wrappers blown in from Route 6. Here, after the first bolt uphill, shoes tossed off. Snail Road is the gate between town and the monumental, but never once am I prepared for the vastness. For the dune wilderness of wind, salt air, beach grass, the ever-shifting carve of sand. I have walked with destination. To dune shacks. Ocean. Or without destination. Lingering by wetlands. Napping near fox tracks. Following illusions of light and shadow. Once, during a snowstorm, I got lost. Time and compass gone. Pressed down to crawling by the whiteout’s pressing gale, I somehow found my way out to the narrow scruff of woods. Each walk here, a glorious lesson in proportion, alters me. Victoria Redel is the author of three books of poems and five books of fiction. She first came to Provincetown in 1986 as a Fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center.

Yes, 466 Commercial Street (The Mary Heaton Vorse House) KEN FULK
I say yes. In fact, I say yes most of the time. I’m not always sure why I do it, but it’s become my own secret superpower. Or maybe it’s simply an act of rebellion. Perhaps both. I say yes to something and then figure out how to make it happen. I think the very idea of this scares most people to death. I find it exhilarating and a little frightening . . . thus the exhilaration. It seems we spend most of our early development learning no. Then, by the time we’ve become adults, no is so ingrained in us that many forget the freedom in saying yes. I wonder if, in the end, that’s what actually makes us grow old? Forced to become adults and say no for ourselves, we keep on saying it until we can no longer imagine the new and unknown and eventually wilting under the weight of the status quo. When my friend Kristin sent me photos of the mysterious, dilapidated, 250-year-old house across the street and asked if we might be interested in saving it, I said yes. When Gail and Sally asked if we would buy the house and help protect the legacy of their grandmother—the legendary Mary Heaton Vorse—I said yes. This was all despite the fact that I had no idea how we might pay for it or exactly what we would do with it. It just seemed to me that something needed to be done. When we had used up nearly half of the construction loan and were maybe ten percent complete on the restoration, I asked our contractor, Nate, if he could somehow make it work with what was left. Could he take a falling down, soggy structure and make it not only a viable and inhabitable building, but also maintain all of the eccentricities and character that only time can create? Without a breath of hesitation, he said yes. Perhaps it is this steadfast affirmation that links us, the stewards and inhabitants of this tilting, meandering building on the fishhook at the end of the Cape. The great Captain Kibbe Cooke, whose family had built the house, said yes to far-off adventures and danger by circumnavigating the globe in search of whales and riches. He always returned home to his crooked house. Even when he’d lost everything and the house was no longer his, he remained. Mary Heaton Vorse, overwhelmed by a sense of place and connection, said yes to the town and yes to the house after her first visit. Then one day, riding past a fish shack on a decaying wharf, she noticed a “For 78 | provincetownartguide.com
Sale” sign and said yes—a decision that echoes to this day in American theater. As a writer and labor activist, she traveled the world fighting for the rights of others, often putting herself in harm’s way. Twice widowed, she left her children and said yes to supporting her family, and yes to shining her light on great injustices. She too returned, time after time, to live out her years in the house and the town. Could that be the tie that binds us—all of us who’ve played a part in the long story of this place, which continues to unfold? Our unspoken pact to agree to a world of unknowns? A secret agreement to anchor ourselves in a place of certainty? I like to think yes.

Portal (Moors Dune Path) PAUL LISICKY
If I stay only on Commercial Street, I can almost trick myself into thinking that Provincetown is entirely built, all of it touched by human hands. But this Provincetown is wilder, brighter, closer to a dream. I might be looking for other humans, but out here the human recedes. Washedup reeds, corroded wood, muck, song sparrows, tide pools, tramped grass, crabs, minnows, Joe Pye weed, pickerelweed—none of it stays still, emptying and filling, a working nervous system, a mind. I take a step down. The dunes ahead are studded with green—or are they just a figment? The walk out always feels longer than the walk back. Paul Lisicky is a former Writing Fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center. He is the author of six books and an associate professor at Rutgers University-Camden. He divides his time between Brooklyn and Provincetown. From Our Provincetown: Intimate Portraits by Barbara E. Cohen. Excerpted with permission of Provincetown Arts Press. Copyright 2021.

OUR TOWN Alleyway DENNIS MINSKY
In every soul there is an alleyway. And every town has one: every town has a place like this, at least one place like this. Even in beautiful Provincetown, you will find an alleyway. This one might be considered the underbelly of the town, if you tend to be judgmental. It is off the beaten track; not exactly a destination, except for those who seek it: this narrow passage between the Old Colony Tap and the Lobster Pot restaurant. It is visited mostly in the deepening shadows of the afternoon, or in the heart of the evening, or late at night, even after last call. It is just steps away from the busy center of town. Churning Commercial Street is at one end, and at the other end, the beach and the lights of fishing boats and MacMillan Wharf, and, nearer by, the upturned dories, like prehistoric creatures, lying amidst the beach grass. Oh, for the old days of wildness and indulgence, to be young, to be alive and enjoying the hilarity of life and good company on a beautiful summer evening, to await—if you survived all this—the next great chapter of your life in Provincetown. Dennis Minsky has been a waiter, a Seashore biologist, a dune tour driver, a whale watch naturalist and a conservationist. He is also a writer whose work has appeared in the Provincetown Banner, the Provincetown Independent, Provincetown Arts, and on WCAI radio. From Our Provincetown: Intimate Portraits by Barbara E. Cohen. Excerpted with permission of Provincetown Arts Press. Copyright 2021. Polaroid Paintings by Barbara E. Cohen.
