Published annually since 1985, PROVINCETOWN ARTS focuses broadly on the artists, performers, and writers who inhabit or visit the tip of Cape Cod, and seeks to stimulate creative activity and enhance public awareness of the cultural life of the nation’s oldest continuous art colony. Drawing upon a century-long tradition rich in visual art, literature, and theater, PROVINCETOWN ARTS publishes a uniquely balanced blend — interviews, essays, reviews, fiction, visual features, reporting, poetry— with a view toward demonstrating that a community of artists, functioning outside the urban centers, is a utopian dream with an ongoing vitality. Contributors include emerging artists as well as establishing figures.


Dear Friends of Provincetown Arts,
Our Fund Raiser for Provincetown Arts 2016/17 has started.
Our cover subjects for our 32nd annual issue are SHARON HORVATH and ALEC WILKINSON.

SHARON HORVATH first came to Provincetown in 1986 as a Fellow in Painting at the Fine Arts Work Center. Since then, Horvath has forged a formidable career, with exhibitions worldwide and with a major show forthcoming next summer at the Merola Gallery in Provincetown. Her awards include a Guggenheim Fellowship and the Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome.

ALEC WILKINSON, raised in the bilingual worlds of New York winters and Cape Cod summers, is a staff writer for The New Yorker. He is the author of Midnights: A Year with the Wellfleet Police and The Happiest Man in the World, a portrait of David Pearlman who built a raft from materials found on Provincetown beaches, and sailed across the Atlantic.
