Gallery Ehva
daring and beautiful art

The year of the unexpected joy... In our 7th season, in location of many possibilities and many challenges, we'll continue to present art full of surprises and beauty, made by exceptional Provincetown and national artists, with our guiding spirit of Arthur Cohen and his unflinching love for Provincetown at the helm. All year long we'll exhibit art by Bill Barrell, Midge Battelle, Fred Garbers, Wendelin Glatzel, Irén Handschuh, Ken Horii, Jenny Humphreys, Bill Liebeskind, Susan Lyman, Richard Smith and many others. We'll also repeat our very popular exhibit "Younger Than Amy" [after Amy Winehouse] organized by young artists from Cape Cod, Boston and New Bedford. Gallery Ehva will continue our EhvaLAB program which is our hands-on art making by gallery artists and friends (new for 2015 season is Arthur's etching press and small ceramic kiln). In off-season we'll still hold an open invitation to all artists for a 2-week residency program (please contact us for details).

MIDGE BATTELLE was born (1945) and raised in Worcester, Ma. She is a longtime resident of Provincetown, MA with many detours concerning life over the bridge, always returning to this place like no other. Active in the Provincetown arts community since the early nineties, Battelle has served, and currently does serve, on the Exhibition Committee at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, has taught both privately and publicly, is a curator and gallerist. Battelle's paintings, photographs, and etchings, are in many private and public collections.

FRANCESCO DI SANTIS

Attracted by Cape School Impressionism's sensibility for "light key" and "atmospheric envelope" to rediscover The Outer Cape as an adult in late May of 2002, he arrived with little more than a french easel in a framepack, to relish and absorb this narrow spiralling peninsula's vibrant oceanic luminosity, which had drawn Charles Hawthorne to found what some claim the world's oldest continuous art colony about four generations earlier.

Informally residing for a few months in the building that had served as The Cape School of Art at the end of Pearl Street, this bohemian niched in the nuance of untrained association. As the youngest self-directed, full-time and residential plein air-ist in Provincetown's aging and gentrifying fine visual art scene, his anachronism would intensify - still thus distinct over a decade later.

His stylized realism genesised in the painterly exalt of richly impastoed au priemer coups amongst these tides and dunes, from whence he embarks e'er again.

FRED GARBERS was born and raised in New York City. He studied at the Art Student's League and after military service enrolled at Cooper Union where he studied with Robert Gwathmey, Morris Kantor and Nicolas Carone. He graduated from Cooper in 1958.

He started showing in group shows while still at Cooper Union and was given his first one man show in 1959 at the Artists' Gallery in New York. Representation by the Krasner Gallery in New York followed and when the gallery closed he continued to show in solo and group exhibitions and galleries in New York, Cincinnati, OH, and Provincetown, MA.

He is a 2006 recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant for painting. His work is in the Hirshhorn Collection, The Addison Gallery of American Art, the Butler Museum of American Art, New York State University, the Provincetown Art Association Museum, Art in Embassies, USA, and numerous private collections.

Garbers has taught painting and drawing in the SUNY system and in Truro, MA. He currently lives and works in New York City.
