INTERSECTION

  • the place where two or more things meet or cross
  • the act or process of intersecting

Provincetown historically has been the meeting place of many divergent peoples, paths, cultures, and lifestyles. As the oldest enduring artist community in the United States, Provincetown has welcomed and inspired those of us who most seek to understand and reflect the world around us. To weave narratives and create images—of remembrances, events witnessed, places traveled, dreamt, and envisioned.

The Fine Art Work Center has been a place of both solitude and community within Provincetown for artists and writers since 1968. As American society continues to progress and become more inclusive to all peoples, identities, genders, abilities, and backgrounds, the creative pull of Provincetown continues unabated. The Fine Arts Work Center remains steadfast in our commitment to offering artists and writers the unparalleled opportunity of time and space here to focus on new work.

Much like the tourists who arrive every summer and return to their homes and lives all around the country and the world, the Fellows of the Fine Arts Work Center take some of Provincetown with them, and (we hope) leave the community here on Cape Cod with the best of themselves, as artists are want to do.

INTERSECTION is an apt name for the first exhibition in the newly transformed Hudson D. Walker Gallery at the Fine Arts Work Center. Together, we celebrate the ritual of welcoming new Fellows to a place and community that has sustained and nurtured artists and writers for decades.

INTERSECTION is the artist and Provincetown; the community of Provincetown connecting with these artists; the Fine Arts Work Center and the places artists call home; as well as the land, the history, and the work of those who have come before us.

INTERSECTION is the wealth of diverse peoples throughout the world. INTERSECTION is the artist and ideas. INTERSECTION is an experience and the resulting work.  INTERSECTION is Provincetown itself.

For this inaugural exhibition, we have asked local community voices to select past Fellows from the Work Center’s powerful legacy whose work has affected them, thereby leaving something of themselves within this community.

A third definition of intersection is the mathematical equation where set A meets set B and is changed into a new set with components of both A and B, presented as A∩B. This equation is undoubtedly representative of Provincetown, the Fine Arts Work Center, and the Fellows we welcome each year.
