“Flora and Fauna,” a show of paintings by Michael Costello, is all about using costumes and props to inhabit a role. It opens Friday, July 9th and runs through July 21st at William Scott Gallery, 439 Commercial St. in Provincetown. The works are theatrical, with an earthy robustness that gives them gravitas.
Also opening is a show of watercolors by Tim Saternow that use cold wax medium. Saternow creates stunning urban landscapes — including ones of the boroughs of New York City — as well as portraits of some of Provincetown’s indelible houses. Precise in their architecture, appropriately organic in their delivery, each painting is like a way station on a journey.
