A year round venue featuring an eclectic collection of work by local artists.
My current work includes painting and printmaking, all reflecting my love of nature through the use of color, pattern, and narrative compositions. My work is included in the permanent collection at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, the Cape Cod Museum of Art, and in collections through the U.S.
Conny Hatch is drawn to the beauty in found and reclaimed objects – the weathered texture of old wood or the rusted patina on metal. The materials themselves are her main source of inspiration. Parts of an old lobster trap or a rusted rake that have had a previous purpose are transformed into something new yet familiar.
Leslie Moore is a printmaker, a pen-and-ink artist, and animal lover. Relief printmaking is the opposite of drawing. In printmaking, she carves out what she doesn't want in the final image; in drawing, she ink ins what she does want. The dichotomy between these two art forms builds creative energy.
The majority of MF Morison's work is intaglio copper plate etching. She often adds elements of color and texture through chine colle. This is achieved by layering thin pieces of rice or organic papers or precious metal gilding between the plate and dampened rag paper before they go through the press. Her imagery is a distillation of the natural world in which she engages the viewer on an intuitive level.
To me winter holds an abundance of beauty and color, nevertheless, in my studio it’s floral colors that inevitably emerge on my winter paintings each year.

James Toothaker is a life long Mainer giving him a great appreciation for the beauty that surrounds us, be it mountains, valleys, the rocky coast with its tides and fog or open farm lands. These vistas inspire his plein art work as well as his studio work. He prefers creating with watercolor on Yupo. His monoprints have been shown in Japan, Ireland and Romania as well as numerous shows in the U.S.
