LONG POINT: An Artists' Place, 1977-1998
PAAM 2012 exhibition catalogue
Pinpointing a specific moment or period of time in which a group of artists collectively achieved a level of camaraderie, respect, and mutual admiration is somewhat of an idealized, almost unbelievable, theory, yet this happened in Provincetown by a group of artists who made up the Long Point Gallery from 1977 -1998. The Provincetown Art Association and Museum is pleased to present ‘Long Point: An Artists’ Place’ a celebration of artistic passion and the enduring attraction to showcase the art that we continue to champion.
