“The Fires on My Desk,” a show of paintings by Chick Byrne, is on display at the Commons, 46 Bradford St. in Provincetown, through Saturday, Aug. 7. There will be a reception on Thursday, Aug. 5, 5 to 7 p.m. Byrne, a Boston-based artist with ties to Provincetown, has a B.F.A. in studio art from Denison University. In 2015, he participated in a group show at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art. His work explores the connection between mind and body through a colorful style inspired by surrealism and abstract expressionism. The Commons is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
