From the CEO

PAAM Exterior

This summer, we’re pleased to present a program of exhibitions, workshops, lectures, and more that celebrate the spirit of Provincetown.

Our exhibitions explore the connection between the past and the present, whether in contemporary approaches to traditional mediums as in Joel Janowitz: Recent Gifts to the Permanent Collection and Out of the Blue: Cyanotypes by Midge Battelle, Rebecca Bruyn, and Amy Heller, iconic photographs from the 60s by Rowland Scherman, or dramatic large paintings from Philip Malicoat, an artist that embodied the spirit of “old Provincetown.” Zehra Khan’s life may not have overlapped with Edith Lake Wilkinson’s, but Your Everyday Myths seems to be in conversation with Wilkinson’s mysterious story–considering what curator Megan Hinton describes as Khan’s “cathartic freedom” when reflecting on Wilkinson’s life is both revelatory and sobering. 

Also on view will be works from PAAM’s permanent collection–a visual legacy of Provincetown’s important art colony–as well as Part IV of the unprecedented Helen and Napi Van Dereck Collection, which is currently on extended loan to PAAM.

The Fredi Schiff Levin Lecture Series connects the public to the artists and curators who create these exhibitions. We invite you back into the galleries to enjoy these lectures in-person, or to watch them live (or later) on our Facebook page or YouTube channel.

Students can dig deeper into the history of Provincetown in two new workshop series: Foundations and PAAM Traditions serve as introductions or refreshers to new and experienced artists alike, and illuminate Provincetown’s position as an art colony in relation to the art world at large. If you want to join the ranks of painters on the beach or printmakers in the studio, register for a workshop at

The best way to maintain your connection with PAAM and the Provincetown art community throughout the year is by becoming a member. PAAM members exhibit their work in the Museum in multiple exhibitions a year, receive discounts on workshops and passes to the Provincetown Film Art Series, and receive free admission year-round. 

PAAM will be lively this summer–we hope you’ll join us at a jazz concert, bid on a 12×12 or two in the Members’ 12×12 Exhibition and Silent Auction, stroll through a hidden pathway in our Secret Garden Tour, find that perfect painting for your collection in the Consignment Auction, or celebrate an incredible year with us at October’s PAAM Party and Artist Gala

As always, we thank you for your ongoing support through donations, memberships, and visits to PAAM.
