HELEN GRIMM: DRIFTLINE

 

July 21 - August 9     Opening Reception, Friday July 21, 7-9 pm

The Driftline Series represents the place on the edge, where the sea deposits hidden treasures mingled with wreckage and debris. It is a push and pull of the tides and between representation and abstraction. Through my senses I make careful observations of the natural world around me with which to express my resultant emotions. Sometimes things are clear and still. At other times, scale, depth, color and perspective are distorted. Stillness and controlled brush strokes sway to an urgency where perception is fleeting and the world is in constant motion.

PETE HOCKING: BROKEN BY WIND AND TIDE

The summer I was fourteen, having been dropped off to stay with my aunt for the summer, as often as possible I'd ride my bike from South Wellfleet to Provincetown. Traveling along the Atlantic coast, before crossing Route 6 to the bayside, I fell in love with the Outer Cape's austere landscape. On those rides, I first became conscious of my desire to move to Provincetown and to become a painter. Despite parental certainty that neither dream was possible, I became a painter in my twenties. But I didn't return to live in the site of my inspiration for another thirty-three years. This series is a meditation on the Outer Cape landscape, my relationship with the land, the way forces greater than ourselves--both planetary and social--break our hearts, and how we endure.

MATTHEW CAPALDO: TO THE GLOAMING

Exhibit Dates:  June 16 - 29, 2017      Opening Reception Friday, June 16, 7 - 9pm

Matthew Capaldo’s cinematically inspired to the gloaming presents ten narrative paintings linked by recurring figure and symbol. Lush and idyllic while also being structured and contained in both form and content, the series presents a mystery in a setting of hedge mazes, fountains, ropes and portals.   Something's in the air and Capaldo leaves it to the viewer to determine what, who, and why.
