“Figuratively Provincetown,” an exhibition curated by Romolo Del Deo at LaMontagne Gallery, 460 Harrison Ave. in Boston, is on view through February 6th. It is also online at lamontagnegallery.com.
“The history of Provincetown art is usually divided, fairly neatly, into two well understood historical groups, the ‘plein-air’ painters of light and nature who defined the first wave at the turn of the 20th century, and the abstract painters who dominated American art in the second half 20th century,” the gallery announcement states. “Rather we are presenting artists spanning the history of Provincetown art and stylistic approaches who defined their work through the use of the figure.”
The featured artists are Jennifer Amadeo-Holl, Varujan Boghosian, Romolo Del Deo, Salvatore Del Deo, Esteban Del Valle, Joseph Diggs, John Dowd, Rob DuToit, Breon Dunigan, Vico Fabbris, Alan Feltus, Bob Henry, Penelope Jencks, Karen Ojala, Richard Pepitone, Jim Peters, Paul Resika, Steven Skollar, Tabitha Vevers, and Erika Wastrom.
