Butterfly” written by playwright Carl A. Rossie, is a one man show about the life and times of James McNeill Whistler, the volatile American Artist who struggled mostly in Victorian England for personal expression in the arts and artistic freedom. The play depicts Whistler at two phases of his life: first as a bankrupt artist in his forties in Venice on commission and then as the established but lonely legend in his sixties in London.

Jim Broussard - Landscapes & Street Scenes

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!

Provincetown and the Birth of the American Theater

In 1915 two married couples vacationing in Provincetown wrote a performed original plays on the veranda of their ocean front cottage. The American theater was never the same. 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.

Beth Wynstra teaches courses in American Drama, Acting, Modernism, and Rhetoric at Babson College.

The History Project

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.
