In honor of Provincetown 400, the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum (PMPM) and PAAM have partnered to mount an exhibition that explores the themes connected to the quadricentennial commemoration: liberty, justice, and freedom of expression. This exhibition features members from both organizations and was juried by a panel of PMPM and PAAM artists.
Walter Baranowski, Bethia Brehmer, Eric Beck, Joanne Burdick, Barbara Cohen, Jay Critchley, Mikael Carstanjean, Larry Collins, MJ Dickson, Jan Donley, Mary Doering, Lee Ann Fanning, Ann Guiliani, Nick Heaney, Jane Kogan, Marianne Levai, Donna Mahan, Deb Mell, KD Mernin, Maureen McCarron, Sonia Flanders McArdle, Cherie Mittenthal, Rosalie Nadeau, Gail O’Connor, Liz Perry, Kurt Reynolds, Sian Robertson, Jody Shyllberg, Tom Stocker, Mariellen Serena, Joe Trepiccione, Daniel Wagner, and Mike Ware.
With over a 100 submissions to the PMPM/PAAM 2020 exhibit at The Pilgrim Monument, we the jurors honed in on pieces that related directly, abstractly, and metaphorically to the quadricentennial commemoration call for the themes of liberty, justice, and freedom of expression. From the large body of submissions we chose work that specifically addressed the show’s theme. Works in assemblage, sculpture, photography, printmaking, and painting not only celebrate the thematic spirit of the exhibition but also challenge notions of both the world’s and Provincetown’s history, culture, and modalities of art making. Through a formalist approach to curation we began to notice and connect threads linking narrative and concepts from a diverse group of artists. The work speaks to their own sense of liberty, justice, and freedom while simultaneously providing transformative global view points.
