OPENINGS AND EVENTS

Vernissage “Bewitching Affairs”: 3pm-5pm Oct 30, Bowersock Gallery, 373 Commercial St., Provincetown. For information: https://bowersockgallery.com. “Bewitching Affair” will feature the widest range of subjects ever presented at Bowersock. There are children enjoying a night of marauding and disturbing mind-shaking images, political pronouncements – their own form of horror – and beings of mysterious power.

Opening of “Suspended Action” by Daniel Wagner: 5-7 p.m. November 5, The Commons, 46 Bradford St., Provincetown. For information: https://bit.ly/3pAuPPp. Despite all his training in the arts and architecture, Daniel Wagner considers himself a self-taught artist. Her first love and greatest early focus was in abstraction. When he started painting full time, his works were architectural in nature. Eventually he began to move away from some of the constraints and limitations of architectural form and discovered the human form as a subject.

Each year, PAAM mounts more than six open and juried exhibitions in which participants showcase their work alongside some of America’s most notable artists. Member exhibitions at PAAM represent the work of contemporary member artists. Juried exhibitions at PAAM represent a smaller sample of member artists whose work has been chosen by a guest curator after submission.

Except in special circumstances, juried exhibitions have no themes or size restrictions.

Priscilla Jacket Exhibition: until December 6 at Seashore Point, 100 Alden St., Provincetown. For information: 508 487-0771. Priscilla Jackett has lived year round in Provincetown for over 50 years. She loves the richness and disorder of oil paint and the texture of rough surfaces that show through the line. She is energized by the vibrant color, frustrated by the effort required to develop a piece, but calmed by the Zen focus required. She feels like she’s just scratching the surface of the paint.

“Lost and Found: Times, Tides and Treasures” Art Exhibition: until January 2, 2022, Cape Code Museum of Art, 60 Hope Lane, Dennis. For information: 508-385-4477.
