Gallery Ehva
daring and beautiful art

. . . . . . .

Dear Friends,

Sorry, we're closed now.

I could not keep gallery open for more then one reason, but the biggest one was me. I did not feel I was strong (and smart) to contine. I needed rest: do nothing time, be closer to Earth, Sea, Sun, Sky, my cat Bikini and my dog Hana.

Do I miss it? Yes! I miss our dinners, painting Easter eggs, my freedom to do with our space whatever I wanted to do, I miss people, soup and bread openings... I miss our little "community".

Do I miss ART? Not now. I am fine having my hands dirty, working in my garden.

What I do now? Hmmm, little art, lots of cooking...

Who I am now? Rebel, definitely!

So, be well my friends and thank you for letting me love you. I know we'll see each other, sonner or later.

-- Yours, always, Ewa

Arthur Cohen

Arthur Cohen, born and raised in NYC, studied at both Cooper Union and the Art Students League. He is nationally known as a painter and master printmaker. Arthur's paintings appear in many major museums across the country. They include the; the Hirschorn Museum in Washington, DC, the NYC Metropolitan Museum, the Everson Museum in Syracuse, NY, the Provincetown Art Association and the Cape Cod Museum. His paintings and etchings are also found in many corporate and private collections.

Arthur painted what he loved the most: countless views Provincetown Harbor, MacMillain and Fisherman's Wharf in ever changing light, East End view of the first house on Commercial Street, fishing boats... He also painted many beautiful interior scenes with his wife Elizabeth playing piano.

In addition to painting, Arthur always carried a camera…ready to capture the little vignettes of city life on film. Although not formally trained in photography, he was acutely aware of the "perfect moment". That special moment of clarity…where even in the most mundane activity of everyday life he found beauty and vitality. His desire to capture such moments and simply present as it appeared, inspired him to photograph his NYC home for more than 40 years.

His original portfolio consisted of over 20,000 negatives. Many of the negatives were damaged and discarded. But of the remaining, only a handful have been printed and restored. In addition to the prints in the City Museum of New York's collection, fewer than 60 images signed and numbered by the artist remain.

Arthur died in June 2012. He was 84 years old.

Remembering artist Arthur Cohen in Provincetown

By Deborah Minsky

When artist Arthur Cohen passed away earlier this year, on June 4, at the age of 84, his wife Elizabeth Rodgers, son Ezekiel Cohen and countless friends were left in a chasm of loss. Beloved for his joyful energy, he balanced a rambunctious tendency to argue with innate friendliness and a profound passion for his work.

Shifting back and forth with seasonal regularity for over 50 years, Cohen painted scenes in Provincetown and Manhattan finding similar resonance and quiet images of peaceful contemplation in both locations, despite the obvious differences between cityscape and the sea.

He observed people in their everyday or out-of-the-ordinary moments, sketched these scenes constantly, shot endless movie footage and still photos and made a profound impression on everyone he met.

And, above all, he created his art — oil paintings, photographs and etchings. He found true affinity between his oft-depicted MacMillan Pier and Brooklyn Bridge, because of the water or the enormity of the structures' significance. These scenes are united by an inchoate spirit that Cohen sensed each time he put paint to canvas. Provincetowners want to claim Cohen as one of "their artists." New Yorkers feel the same way. During his lifetime he exhibited in Manhattan as well as locally at various galleries, including East End, Gail Harris, Berta Walker, Cortile, Gail Browne and Burke. (...)
