A portal to the monster world of Underborough opens in her backyard, and from that portal emerges the Countess Winifred Pale. When Angela learns of Winifred's plans to conquer the human world by turning its people into monsters, she poses as Winifred's friend and volunteers to become a witch in order to stop her. She soon learns that foiling a world takeover is complicated, and being Winifred's friend is even more so.

Woodman/Shimko Gallery presents

O'Day

Featuring a new body of oils by Adam O'Day, award-winning, expressionist painter. Zooming in and zooming out, the experience intensifies as it calms. Some aspects of humanity are vast and immeasurable; while others are more intimate and personal. One day a person walks down a dark road alone, reflecting on their experiences here. While other times that same person finds themselves dizzy, looking out over a vast expanse of overpopulation, overwhelmed by their interpretation of this chaotic world. Reflecting on our past lives and wondering about our futures, we ultimately feel hope.

You are warmly invited to join Adam at the reception.


Woodman/Shimko Gallery
398 Commercial Street, Provincetown, Cape Cod, Massachusetts
Reception: Friday, August 18th, 6-10 pm, Free and open to the public

Closing Reception and Book Signings- Chroma + SEVEN (Reunion)

Closing Reception and Book Signings- Chroma + SEVEN (Reunion)

The fun isn't over yet! You have another chance to celebrate CHROMA Volumes I-IV and SEVEN's comprehensive catalog! Check out the exhibitions before they close. You don't want to miss this!!

From the pages of "Chroma," an art annual created by three Montserrat alum, a commitment was formed to showcase emerging and established artists in a vibrant and varied publication. With each volume filling a need to define the creative community in New England and giving a voice to the artists residing here. 

While the co-founders (Andrew Houle 00', John Cardinal 99' & Michael Crockett 97') shared overlapping years attending Montserrat, a passion for illustration, comic book culture and painting formed a bond that would later bring them to form Tryptic Press and later publish "Chroma" vl1. 

Now together releasing "Chroma" vl3 & vl4 a thriving and supportive collective of artists has formed. Creating an uncommon home within the "Chroma Family", bridging abstract painters, fashion photography, comic book illustrators, community based art programs, printmakers, sound-makers and even robot-makers. 

With this 50 person group exhibition all points come together in some cases meeting for the very first time in person and on the walls, combining all four current volumes of artists. Creating new collaborations, new relationships, new directions for what has always been right in our own backyard; a New England Art Awakening.

--
SEVEN began in 2012 as an experimental idea to activate our main exhibition space over the sleepy summer. We ended up loving the initial exhibition’s process and the resulting works so much that we repeated the concept in 2013 and 2015 with different artists. Montserrat is collaborating with Triptych Press to create a commemorative book project in honor of the artists who participated not only to document the works they created, but to continue to share the experience with our audiences.

This exhibition will feature a small work by each of the 21 artists who have participated over the years. They are: Zsuzsanna Szegedi, Dana Woulfe, Eben Kling'09, Jim Falck, Raul Gonzalez III, Barbara Moody, Norman Laliberté, Andy Bablo’07, Percy Fortini-Wright, Alexa Guarigli, Allison Cole, John C. Gonzalez, Autum Ahn, David Teng-Olsen, Mark Hoffmann, Kenji Nakiyama, August Ventimiglia, Christopher Mir, Samantha Fields, Nadia Wescott, and Adam Miller’00
