She walks Provincetown beaches and streets searching for painted wood, and in the studio, pulls old nails, sorts and stacks the wood according to color while waiting for it to tell her what it wants to be. Her subject matter—the sea, fishing vessels, architecture, still life—along with inspiration from early Provincetown Modernists.Mike Wright says, “The point of using found wood is that, as debris, it seems unpromising. But that lack of promise is also its appeal. The peeling paint, the color scrubbed by sand, salt waves, or human use allows you to infer the influence of its life as a boat, floorboard or table. I interfere with what it originally was and make it something else: a sculpture that includes some aspect or detail from its archeological memory.” She is the recent recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant; has works in the collections of Provincetown Art Association and Museum, Cape Cod Museum of Art, and many private collections; and is represented by Alden Gallery in Provincetown. Refreshments will be served.
Dixieland began as just music on the dirt streets of New Orleans. It was a confluence of many styles: brass band marches, work songs, popular melodies, dance tunes, street corner blues—even opera. When ragtime appeared, so did syncopation: the rhythm became “ragged.” That was a century ago, and today this fundamental American music has re-emerged in force. This one-hour talk starts with the very first jazz recording (1917), by the Original Dixieland Jass Band, then moves through the great early jazz masters—Louis Armstrong, King Oliver, Kid Ory, Jelly Roll Morton, Bix Beiderbecke, Earl Hines, Eddie Condon—then to the present day with players like Woody Allen, the New Black Eagle Jazz Band, and others.

Hatches Harbor Exhibitions presents - Jim Broussard Landscapes & Street Scenes
Opening - Sunday, October 8th, 2pm
A glance, a familiar view, a pattern of shadow on the street, an instant that jogs the memory - these are the evocative inspirations Jim Broussard uses to make his paintings. "I head out for the day with an easel...not returning until the paintings are complete. To evoke a feeling or make a connection through my work is less an exercise in intellect than an experience which invites the viewer to pause," he says. A plein air painter, Jim Broussard's work has shown in Boston, and Oils by the Sea gallery represents him in Provincetown. His work resides in serveral private collections in the U.S., Europe and Canada. This exhibition is a collaboration between The Residences at Seashore Point and Oils by the Sea Gallery, and includes talk by gallerist Shirl Roccapriore. Join us for a reception to mark the occassion!

This unassuming performance was the beginning of the Provincetown Players, a theater company most well-known for launching the careers of Pulitzer Prize and Nobel Prize winning dramatists Eugene O'Neil and Susan Glaspell as well as for presenting works that not only experimented with expressionistic, futuristic, and surrealistic forms but also examined important political and social issues.

The History Project — established in 1980 by a group of historians, activists and archivists — is the only group focused exclusively on preserving the history of Boston’s LGBT community, and on making that history accessible to future generations. This research and preservation is of paramount importance for the LGBT community, which is often excluded from history. In fact, some historians —whether deliberately or negligently— have taken steps to hide or obscure the nature of those contributions.
Neal Kane is a long-standing board member of The History Project, one of the nation’s leading LGBT history organizations.
