Mike Carroll, Owner of the Schoolhouse Gallery in Provincetown, MA. He attended Emerson College and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston until he became involved in Boston’s then thriving underground scene. Since then, he has woven his own art making practice with fine art presentation in a variety of ways. He opened his first gallery, The 11th Hour, near Boston’s South Station, and has been the owner of the Schoolhouse Gallery since 2005. He is well known for presenting the finest in collaboration and new thought both in the gallery and with a variety of outside projects.

Olschafskie will discuss his current exhibition at PAAM with Schoolhouse Gallery Director Mike Carroll. On display are pictures with a single in camera transfixion captured through the lens, displaying an array of multiple images. The delineation is rendered by reflection/projection, and through glass portrayal of what is in front, what is all through, and what is behind.

Olschafskie will begin with a presentation related to the museum exhibition with a Q&A to follow.

About the Fredi Schiff Levin Lectures:

In its 18th year, the Fredi Schiff Levin lecture series welcomes artists, art historians, curators, and authors to speak at PAAM, both in conjunction with exhibitions and as independent scholars. The lecture series was established in honor of artist Fredi Schiff Levin, an active member of Provincetown’s arts community from the 1960s until her passing in 2002. We extend our deepest gratitude to the Levin family, who graciously sponsors this series, and to Amy Davies and Provincetown Television for filming the series.
