The gallery is pleased to announce our twenty sixth season and the following highlights…


After a successful booth at Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary fair in March we began our programming in Provincetown on May 10th with a group show celebrating spring. 


We will also welcome our new neighbor, Twenty Summers. Twenty Summers is an organization that produces programs, residencies and diverse opportunities for makers using the five senses in dialogue via storytelling, music, journalism, literature, performance, culinary exploration, ecological exploration, and visual arts.


For the 2024 season the gallery will have our exhibitions in both our own and Twenty Summers’ gallery spaces, resulting in larger and more dynamic shows.

Beginning on July 19 we will present a new immersive installation from Fred in our project room with projections, printed material, moving images and wall works.




The gallery is thrilled to present, ‘Beyond Reason’, a new project from renowned photographer Amy Arbus. ‘Beyond Reason’ consists of sixteen black and white photographs from 2023-4. These archival black and white photographs are available in editions of five in two sizes. The exhibition will feature prints in both sizes. 


Arbus became fascinated after a friend took her to a circus at a state fair in 2023 and a door flew open. She was instantly obsessed with and immersed in what she saw. The drive and desire to photographically capture these circus performers, acrobats, and dancers, as they moved, even flew sparked her technical interest and photographer’s eye. The desire to know their worlds has seen her investigating many circuses and acrobatic dance communities since. The results are a beautifully constructed visual essay about the figure, photography, and esoteric communities in our changing times. 


As always, Arbus’s drive and skill has provided us with exquisite visual results: technically and formally perfect, the tonal range between the blacks and whites in her prints is stunning and subtle. Her experience as a portrait photographers gives us the assurance that the subject, light, perspective, and distance from her subjects have all been perfectly chosen. Arbus has decided to make her prints a bit warmer in this project, a departure from the deep blacks and high whites we’ve seen in On the Street, The Fourth Wall and The Outsiders. In Beyond Reason the subtle warmth humanizes her seemingly impossible figures as they come to us from odd and specifically different worlds, making physical the unattainable. ‘Beyond Reason’ is a heady mix and doorway into sharing the curiosity and drive that she felt in unearthing the pictures.   


In these new pictures the muscularity and torque of the figures is riveting. They are poised; in danger even, but in an exquisite arc of pain, desire, beauty, and an almost gruesome request of their own bodies to do something beyond reason. Perhaps more than anything in a time of overstimulation from screens and moving images Amy Arbus has given us something we would not be able to have without her camera and her own distinguished experience behind the lens. Matching an everyday essential need to understand human form with an investigation into the strange subcultures of circus and acrobatic performers reopens the nearly forgotten world of separate communities like travelling circuses, spiritual communities, and other esoteric groups that have come to be eradicated or considered abnormal and dangerous. Yet they are also remembered as lively alternatives to mainstreaming. Beyond Reason is a way back and a way in to the impossible, improbable, exquisite joy and pain of reaching away from convention into using one’s body to create and occupy new social spaces.   


Photographer AMY ARBUS has had thirty-six solo exhibitions worldwide, and her photographs are a part of the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The National Theater in Norway, The New York Public Library and The Museum of Modern Art in New York. 


She has published five books, including the award winning On the Street 1980-1990 and The Inconvenience of Being Born. The New Yorker called The Fourth Wall her masterpiece. Her most recent, After Images, is an homage to modernism's most iconic avant-garde paintings.


Arbus has taught portraiture at Maine Media Workshops, the International Center of Photography, NORDphotography, Anderson Ranch Arts Center and The Fine Arts Work Center. Her photographs have appeared in over one hundred periodicals around the world, including New York Magazine, People, Aperture and The New York Times Magazine.


Arbus will exhibit Beyond Reason with works from David X Levine, Jo Sandman, 

Han Feng, and Stephen Aiken.




ELISE ANSEL was born and raised in New York City.  She received a BA in Comparative Literature from Brown University in 1984. While at Brown, she studied art at both Brown and the Rhode Island School of Design. She worked briefly in the film industry before deciding to make painting her first order medium. Ansel has exhibited her work throughout the United States and in Europe. Her works are held in the permanent collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow, the Bowdoin College Museum of Art and the Evansville Museum of Arts and Sciences. She is represented by galleries in New York, London, Connecticut, Santa Fe, and Detroit. 


Using energetic gestural abstraction, Elise Ansel translates Old Master paintings into a contemporary pictorial language. She mines art historical imagery for color and form, setting aside the narrative and pictorial elements of these paintings and thus creating room for new interpretations. Her works interrupt linear readings of Old Master paintings, repurposing and highlighting the unexpected. The representational content is transformed into a celebration of color, gesture and the materiality of paint. In the process of reducing her inspirations to their most fundamental forms she retains their power and energy, replacing imagery with dynamic movement and dramatic color and light.


Elise will present a new suite of paintings made for the exhibition from August 9 - 28, 2024.




JEWELS of the SUMMER:  This year we're pleased to work with our friends at the LaMontagne Gallery on a pop-up exhibit within our own programming. 


We're working with Russell LaMontagne and director Youn Soo Kang to curate a special selection of individual works from inside and outside both of our gallery's programs. 


August 9 - 28, 2024




Danielle Rante's work explores our personal relationships to landscape, communicating a deep sense of contemplation and awe. She works on traditional washi papers, creating large scale yet intimate environments. Her unique approach to image making blurs boundaries between drawing, painting, alternative photography and print.  She has participated in exhibitions nationally and internationally, notably K. Imperial Fine Art (San Francisco, CA), International Print Center New York (NY, NY) and both the China Art Museum and University of Art Museum in Shanghai. 


Rante has completed artist residences at Headlands Center for the Arts (Marin, CA); Fine Arts Work Center (Provincetown, MA); Nes (Skagastrond, Iceland); Kala Art Center (Berkeley, CA); and Jentel (Banner, WY); Arteles (Haukijärvi, Finland), among others. She is a three-time recipient of the Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellence Award, and her work has been featured and reviewed in significant publications such as New American Paintings. 


Danielle will exhibit new works from August 9 - 28, 2024.




New work from Sean Flood. July 19 - August 6, 2024.  


Sean Flood received his BFA in Fine Arts from The Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University in 2005. Since then, Flood has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions and has received multiple grants, awards, residencies, and commissions. His work is in numerous public and corporate collections, as well as many private collections internationally. Flood currently splits his time between his New York City and Boston studios. He continues to work fluidly between painting, printmaking, and drawing, paying particular attention to how the atmosphere, texture, and mark-making come together throughout the different media. Flood’s work primarily focuses on a rapidly changing urban environment. He strives to demonstrate the continuous energy and constant interactions he observes in the city through mark-making. 




Lauren Ewing presents new works from August 9 - 28, 2024. Pictued above is 'Who Makes the Image, Who Abides (after Hokusai)', 2023-24, carbon black soot and paint on board, pair, each 36 x 23".


The 3 pieces in this show are all pairs. “Who Makes the Image, Who Abides (after Hokusai )” and “15th Century Goose (after Sesshu)” both use animal images from Japanese ink paintings paired with contemporary technology. The other pair “Aah” is a photo taken while passing through a landscape so quickly that everything is a blur and one is left only with longing to comprehend.
