Winter Arts Roundup

In Provincetown there are always arts to enjoy.

January 8th, 2013

Just because it’s January, your weekends don’t have to be a bore! Here in Provincetown, there are always arts to enjoy, even in winter. Quite a few of our galleries are open all year, including:

The legacy of Charles Hawthorne's Impressionism, Hans Hofmann's Abstract Expressionism, and Michael Mazur's printmaking continues to thrive through Museum School faculty and students.

In the far West End, you’ll find Alice Brock Studios, home of the famed artist and cookbook author, who also holds the distinction of being the subject of the movie "Alice's Restaurant", and the song "Alice's Restaurant" by Arlo Guthrie. She’s open weekends from noon to 5 or 6 pm., and other hours by chance or appointment. There you can view her prints, beach stone drawings, whimsical T-shirt designs, and her mischievous book, “How to Massage Your Cat”! Call (508) 487-2127 for more information and to confirm that she’s in the studio.

At Sarah Jessica Fine Arts, you’ll find a very eclectic selection of local painters including abstract, impressionism, romantic realism and surrealism, as well as the largest selection of original and intaglio prints on Cape Cod, and gorgeous hand blown glass and pottery. Open 12-5 pm on weekends; call 508-487-0884.

While Kobalt Gallery’s main location at 432 Commercial is closed for the winter, their second location at 366 Commercial Street will be open on weekends as weather permits, from 11 am to 5 pm. Currently on exhibit are recent works by the gallery’s 18 artists, who include Sally Brophy, Cheri Mittenhall, Dave Laro, Duncan Johnson and Lois Griffel. The gallery can also be viewed by appointment by calling 617-893-0110.

Simie Maryles Gallery is an artist-owned gallery representing a small, select group of representational artists from across the country. Paintings, sculptures and Giclee prints from a variety of viewpoints including classical, impressionists and humorous. Open Saturdays and Sundays from 12-5 pm. Call 508-487-7878 for more information.

The Schoolhouse Gallery is exhibiting a group show of 14 artists from now through February 13th. Highlights include works sculptress Lauren Ewing, photographer David Hilliard, mixed-media artists Richard Selesnick and Nicholas Kahn, and painter Paul Stopforth. For information call 508-487-4800 or visit their website.

The Provincetown Art Association and Museum is currently showing “Teaching Traditions: Selections from the Lillian Orlowsky and William Freed Museum School” through February 24th. The exhibition follows the long line of historically significant teaching methods as passed down from teacher to student over more than a century in Provincetown. The legacy of Charles Hawthorne's Impressionism, Hans Hofmann's Abstract Expressionism, and Michael Mazur's printmaking continues to thrive through Museum School faculty and students. The exhibition is curated by Museum School Program Administrator Grace Ryder-O'Malley. The Museum is open Thursday through Sunday, from 12-5 pm. Call 508-487-1750 for more information or visit their website.

If movies are your guilty pleasure, the Water’s Edge Cinema has some great options. Until January 10th, you can catch the pre-Civil War action flick “Django Unchained,” starring Jaime Foxx and Leonardo DiCaprio. On January 4th, the drama “Promised Land” opens, which tells of a salesman for a natural gas company who experiences life-changing events after arriving in a small town, and stars Matt Damon and Frances McDormand. Other upcoming releases include the Victor Hugo classic, “Les Miserables,” starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway, and “Zero Dark Thirty,” depicting the mission to kill Osama bin Laden, directed by Oscar-winner Kathryn Bigelow and starring Jessica Chastain. Call (508)487-3456 for schedules.

Chris Daniels is a writer, photographer and office-guru-about-town who shares her life with a bossy cat and “Damon, the Dog With the Toy”
