Living the Dream
Time is Every Thing: Drawn by the Stronger Pull

by Nancy Nicol

To paraphrase the poet Rumi, "I have let myself be drawn by the stronger pull of what I really love." In the light of this Wellfleet morning life appears as I dreamed it would be – I paint, I write and then I paint some more.

Experiencing my self being drawn in a certain direction is rooted in childhood. A green leather diary - a gift for my eighth birthday - spells it out in big letters…Professional Goal – "ARTIST."

A Celebration of Color and Design

From August 24 through September 11, the Great Hall at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod will be filled with "A Celebration of Color and Design," evidence that art can change lives and lives can change art.

Patsy Tidwell Painton and Gigi Burboeck both came to art and to Cape Cod indirectly, but they have now immersed themselves in painting, with gorgeous results.

A Unique Offering by
21 in TRURO

by Michele Dangelo

In the Fall of 1999, 21 women held their first retreat. They've had exhibitions in the past, as observed and written about in CapeWomenOnline's Fall 2010 Issue. This September, they will come together for their 13th consecutive year.

The retreat is a time when they paint and support one another through sharing ideas and encouragement. They call themselves "21 in Truro" because that is where they gather; however, they are becoming known as simply "the 21."

As a group they are in demand to show their work Cape-wide. Over the years they have shown from Provincetown to Falmouth with many stops in between, including the Cape Cod Museum of Art in 2005.

"Perspectives on the Provincetown Art Colony" at Cape Cod Museum of Art

When Charles Hawthorne opened his Cape Cod School of Art in 1899, he propelled the little fishing village of Provincetown into a flourishing art center.

Perspectives on the Provincetown Art Colony is both the title of a new two-volume set of books and an exhibition at the Cape Cod Museum of Art.

Through August 7, museum visitors can view highlights of the rich cultural heritage of Cape Cod through a wonderful cross-section of works from the Provincetown artists. The exhibit is directly associated with Deborah Forman's new book, Perspectives on the Provincetown Art Colony.
