THE BEGINNING: THE WORK CENTER TAKES WING
FOUNDERS AND FRIENDS
HUDSON D. WALKER GALLERY
THROUGH JULY 14
Curated by Bob Bailey
The Beginning: The Work Center Takes Wing celebrates many of the Fine Arts Work Center’s early champions and pioneers—though Bailey, who curated the show, is quick to point out that there are many other relevant founding voices not included. “It would be impossible to name and include all of the essential players involved in the founding of the Work Center, which was undoubtedly a collective and organic effort. But it’s an honor to present works from Salvatore Del Deo, Myron Stout, Robert Motherwell, Fritz Bultman, Philip Malicoat, and others in this show, right here on the grounds they envisioned some 50 years ago.”
The Hudson D. Walker Gallery at the Fine Arts Work Center features an extensive schedule throughout the year of acclaimed Cape artists as well as Work Center Fellows. In 1972 the former storefront of Days Coal and Lumber Yard was transformed into a gallery named for Hudson D. Walker, a steadfast patron of FAWC from its earliest days. The gallery offers dynamic, thought-provoking exhibitions featuring the Work Center's and Provincetown's rich artistic history.
Regular gallery hours: Monday thru Friday, 9:30am-5pm
