Gallery Exhibition Opening and Conversation
PAAM invites the public to a Gallery Conversation with exhibiting artist Constance Black and curator Elisabeth Pearl to discuss Constance Black: Toward Abstraction on view at PAAM April 8-May 30, 2016.. This Gallery Conversation is free and open to the public.
Constance Black came to Provincetown in 1950 to study at the Cape Cod School of Art under Henry Hensche. By the 1960’s the town was buzzing with new ideas and art schools and although her background was academic black was bitten by the new teachings. She plunged into abstraction mentored primarily by the painter Jim Forsberg.
This exhibition focuses on Black’s newest work which shifts to geometric and minimal forms inspired by an interest in the mysteries offered by spiritual belief systems and concepts. Her baha’i faith has provided black with an aesthetic that states there can be no break between nature, art, science, religion, or personal life. This belief is an ultimate unity-visualized as a central focus or enclosing sphere.

NAUTICONS (the 21+ Convention) 2019: Vegas, Baby!
NAUTICONS (the 21+ Convention) is an event held for everyone who's into anime, comic books, superhero movies, cartoons, science fiction, fantasy, and all things nerdy! It's provided for those over 21 who think sitting with a drink in hand talking about all that nerdy with other people who get you is awesome. Nauticon has been described as a college dorm for people who aren't in college. It's been likened to a drinking con with a science fiction problem. It's been called a cosplay con without the pressure to cosplay. There's just no way to truly describe this gathering that does justice to all the many aspects attendees bring to it. 2019's theme is VEGAS, BABY! We intend to have a Las Vegas Style convention, including Elvis and Show Girl Impersonators, the Rat Pack is welcome too. We are working on the details of a no-cash casino to raise funds for the non-profit charity we sponsor each year. 2019 is year 8 of the convention, and we'll bring you what you expect if you're a longtime attendee. But we're changing up a few things as well. So, keep an eye peeled on the website www.nauticons.com and our Facebook page for further information. If you purchased before we release the HOTEL ROOMS at Provincetown Inn please be aware that you will get an email a couple days before we let the rest of the world know we have that contract. You will be given a CODE WORD that you enter into the P-town Inn site to reserve your room at the convention price. This usually happens after Labor Day weekend when the Inn staff has a chance to work on contracts and breath after a busy summer.
