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).

Laundry Room #2 Waterfall

Special exhibit at Gallery Ehva curated by Ellen Schön

July 3-15, 2015

Opening Friday, July 3, 6-8pm

Waterfall

Waterfall

Waterfall is an international collaboration between three artists, Pirjo Heino (Finland), Karmela Berg (Israel), and Ellen Schön (United States). The artists met through the Transcultural Tile Exchange project in 2004. Their collaboration--an exhibit, installation, and performance--explores the theme of water as a metaphor for life. Water is seen as transformative and healing, as well as a tangible resource which needs to be protected. The title, Waterfall conveys both the idea of abundant water AND water at risk.

Waterfall is part of the transcultural exchange's world-wide Project entitled Here, There and Everywhere: Anticipating the Art of the Future. The exhibit will then travel to art gallery ripustus in Hämeenlinna, Finland from June 2-28, 2009, then to Tel Aviv, Israe, and now is coming to Gallery Ehva in Provincetown.

The project has several components with each artist contributing to the others' ideas. As part of the installation, local and international artists were asked through a Mail Art Call to donate their interpretive snapshots of water. All proceeds of the sale of these prints will benefit wateraid, an international non-governmental organization whose mission is to overcome poverty by enabling the world's poorest people to gain access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene education. To date over 80 artists from 15 countrieshave donated their work.

The TransCultural Exchange project is designed to encourage artists to work collaboratively, culminating in a series of international exhibitions, a catalog, and a panel discussion at the International Opportunities in the Arts conference in April 2009. The Waterfall artists appreciate this opportunity to forge a personally and socially meaningful collaboration from their different backgrounds, cultures, and disciplines.

Al Kaplan

Photograph by Al Kaplan, Josephine Del Deo speaking at an anti-nuclear weapons rally at the Bas Relief

+ Al Kaplan Photography Show

Al Kaplan receives a posthumous spotlight for his previously-unseen early 1960s Provincetown photographs with the publication of There Was Always A Place To Crash. The first release from Letter 16 Press, a new art-focused publishing house co-managed by frequent North Truro visitor Brett Sokol, the book collects this New Bedford-raised photographer's deep dives into Provincetown's bohemian milieu between 1962 and 1966. The results, lovingly transferred from the original 35mm negatives, vividly capture a period of socially-charged cultural transition -- from Josephine Del Deo speaking at an anti-nuclear weapons rally at the Bas Relief to the libertine scene unfolding inside gay rights pioneer Prescott Townsend's legendary treehouse (where countless washashores, including John Waters, would stay upon first hitting town). Gallery Ehva will be hosting the book's release party, as well as presenting an exhibition of Kaplan's Provincetown photos published in it -- the first time these prints have been publicly shown anywhere.

July 17-29, 2015

Opening Friday, July 17, 6-8pm
