About Our Speakers



Simonette Quamina was born in Ontario, Canada, and spent her early childhood living between South America, the Caribbean, and New York City. Her diverse upbringing is constantly woven into the narratives of her large-scale drawings, prints, and collages. She earned her Bachelor of Arts from the City College of New York, and an MFA in Printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design. She maintains an active studio in New York City, and is an Assistant Professor at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.



Mark Adams is a painter/cartographer showing at the Schoolhouse Gallery in Provincetown, and has 30 years experience in the National Park Service. He has exhibited installations, prints, photography, scientific illustration, and video art, and he was named Artist of the Year by the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod. His retrospective, Expedition, was at the Provincetown Art Association Museum in 2017. He has traveled with a sketchbook in hand around the Mediterranean, South America, Asia, and US wildernesses and has illustrated and co-authored a geologic primer, Coastal Landforms of Cape Cod, with Center for Coastal Studies geologist Graham Giese.



Nick Flynn’s most recent book is Low (Graywolf, 2023). Other recent books include: This Is the Night Our House Will Catch Fire (Norton, 2020); and Stay: Threads, Collaborations, and Conversations (Ze Books, 2020), which documents twenty-five years of his collaborations with artists, filmmakers, and composers. His bestselling memoir Another Bullshit Night in Suck City (Norton, 2004), was made into a film starring Robert DeNiro (Focus Features, 2012), and has been translated into fifteen languages.
