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.

FADVERTISING SEASON and FUND RAISER 2018

Dear Friends of Provincetown Arts,
Our Fund Raiser and Advertising season for Provincetown Arts 2018 has started. This year’s featured subjects for our 33rd annual issue are artist HELEN FRANKENTHALER and writer PAUL LISICKY.

HELEN FRANKENTHALER, the major woman artist who swam fluidly through the turbulent art world of the Abstract Expressionist, introduced the stain technique into the vocabulary of contemporary painting. Her work is in museum collections worldwide; she has close ties to Provincetown, where she studied with Hans Hofmann in the early fifties and painted in Provincetown during her marriage to Robert Motherwell.

PAUL LISICKY, twice a Fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, has since published five books, The Narrow Door (a New York Times Editor’s Choice), Unbuilt Projects, The Burning House, Famous Builder, and Lawnboy. Lisicky’s latest book received nationwide praise; Elizabeth McCracken wrote, “In The Narrow Door, proves, again, that he’s one of our finest writers on the intricacies of the human heart.”
