From the CEO

Dear Friends,

Welcome to the quiet months. The steady hum of the crowds in Provincetown has all but subsided; instead you’ll find our community at its most stripped down. If you’re avoiding crowds, these winter months are an ideal time to come to PAAM as a visitor to the Museum, or as a student in the studios or online.

Our educational offerings this winter invite you to engage deeply with our permanent collection: the workshops in the PAAM Collection Series on “The Figure,” with Laura Shabbot and Alana Barret, and “Assemblage,” with Megan Hinton, unpack the methods, histories, and continued significance of important Provincetown artists. The artists teaching these classes are both students of the Provincetown Art Colony’s legacy, and its current vanguards.

Through our exhibitions, you can see the product of two important community collaborations: the artists-in-residence at the Fine Arts Work Center are displaying some of their work in our galleries, an annual tradition that we all look forward to that helps to further cement their places in Provincetown history. Coming up in March, students from schools all over the Cape that attend our Art Reach program will be sharing the work they’ve been making under the guidance of teaching artists Vicky Tomayko, Megan Hinton, Grace Emmet, and Antonia DaSilva.

And we’re thrilled to display an extraordinary recent gift to our permanent collection: 80 (out of a total of 201) photographs of the people and landscape of Cape Cod by award winning photographer, Joel Meyerowitz.

We’re looking forward to PAAM’s Summer Program with cautious optimism. Our commitment to providing quality programming remains strong, and we’re continuing to innovate ways of staying true to our mission while keeping each other safe.

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

CHRISTINE MCCARTHY, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
