HELEN GRIMM: CURRENT JUNCTURES

Exhibition Dates: July 15 - Aug 4     Opening Reception Date:  Friday, July 22, 6 -9pm


Helen Grimm’s gently abstracted oil paintings of the Cape Cod seashore depict situations when light bends through water, reflecting texture and color while perception shifts through the tension of surface and depth. Amidst shape altering ebbs and flows, moments emerge marked by clarity and distilled with feeling. These transient yet familiar experiences are sparkling snap shots through distortion, revealing the connection of soul and place through water. Helen Grimm is a native of Cape Cod. She holds an BFA from Cornell Univeristy.

PETE HOCKING: KISS ME HARD BEFORE YOU GO - NEW PAINTINGS

Exhibition Dates: July 1 - 14     Opening Reception:  Friday, July 1, 6-9pm

Pete Hocking’s abstracted landscapes are inspired by his walks through Provincetown. A response to the profound shifts in Provincetown’s culture and vista, Hocking’s work chronicles the loss of one’s sense of place and the consolation that emerges from an enduring landscape.

MATTHEW CAPALDO: NEW WORK

Exhibition Dates - June 17 - 30        Opening Reception: Friday June 17, 6 - 9pm

Capaldo's figurative paintings explore the relationship of the self to others and the shifting nature of the individual within and apart from society. The mysterious narrative pull of these intimate, small works offer more questions than answers. Through deliberate, careful rendering, Capaldo’s work balances a tension between flux and stillness, saturation and transparency. The nostalgic tone of the work appears in both form and process. “I’m referencing the past and external, seemingly unrelated images to reveal an internal landscape,” explains the artist. Matthew Capaldo is a year-round Provincetown resident.  He holds a BA in English Literature from Boston University.
