Two New Shows Open at PAAM
On Friday, Jan. 24, at 6 p.m., the Provincetown Art Association and Museum will host an opening reception for two new shows in its galleries at 460 Commercial St. Admission is free and open to the public.
The “Recent Gifts: Part II” exhibit features works recently donated to the museum’s permanent collection. The show will be on view through March 22.
The “2020 FAWC Visual Arts Fellows” exhibit features work by the 10 visual arts fellows at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown for 2019-20. They are: Johannes James Barfield, Coady Brown, Raul De Lara, Akiko Jackson, Anina Major, Hannah E. Morris, Pat Phillips, Antonius-Tín Bui, Jake Troyli, and Autumn Wallace. Each visual arts fellow will also have a weeklong solo show of their work at FAWC’s Hudson D. Walker Gallery at 24 Pearl St. starting Jan. 30.
The PAAM group show will be on view through March 1.
Seashore Point Artists’ Work on View
The Residences at Seashore Point is holding a show of work by artists who live there that is free and open to the public.
Among the residents with work on view are Carol Procter, Pasquale Natale, Lorraine Kujawa, Richard Pepitone, David Couture, Marilyn Lober Colucci, Diana Lu, June Rathaus, Kevin Adams, and Lorraine DeProspo.
The show will be up in the Hatches Harbor Room at Seashore Point through March 14.
Come Hell or Hightown
The new Starz cable network series Hightown, which was partially shot here last year, has released a trailer in anticipation of its premiere in the spring. The series stars Monica Raymund as Jackie Quinones, a National Marine Fisheries Service agent and “hard-partying lesbian in Provincetown.” When a murdered woman washes ashore, Quinones delves deep into the Outer Cape’s opioid crisis and episodic thrills ensue.
Judging from the trailer, the series may well test the adage about there being no bad publicity. We asked Provincetown summer resident John Waters what he thought of it. “I’ll be watching!” he emailed.
Congratulations to Rob Phelps, a former arts editor of the Provincetown Banner, who this month was named editor-in-chief of the Boston Spirit Magazine, which appears six times a year and targets the LGBTQ community. (Photo courtesy Rob Phelps)
