Gallery Ehva
daring and beautiful art

The year of the unexpected joy... In our 7th season, in location of many possibilities and many challenges, we'll continue to present art full of surprises and beauty, made by exceptional Provincetown and national artists, with our guiding spirit of Arthur Cohen and his unflinching love for Provincetown at the helm. All year long we'll exhibit art by Bill Barrell, Midge Battelle, Fred Garbers, Wendelin Glatzel, Irén Handschuh, Ken Horii, Jenny Humphreys, Bill Liebeskind, Susan Lyman, Richard Smith and many others. We'll also repeat our very popular exhibit "Younger Than Amy" [after Amy Winehouse] organized by young artists from Cape Cod, Boston and New Bedford. Gallery Ehva will continue our EhvaLAB program which is our hands-on art making by gallery artists and friends (new for 2015 season is Arthur's etching press and small ceramic kiln). In off-season we'll still hold an open invitation to all artists for a 2-week residency program (please contact us for details).

The Cape Cod landscape has been a source of materials and inspiration in my sculpture and painting since 1984. I scavenge for my materials at the beach, in the woods, at local tree dumps or curbside, gathering fallen wood with an eye for a dense root mass, the sinuous beech limb, cedar with its characteristic ridged surfaces, a graceful balsam Christmas tree ready for repurpose, even weathered wash-a-shore beach detritus from fires whose embers have long died out.

British essayist John Fowles so aptly described the woods of his native land in his delightful ramble, The Tree, "....there is certainly something erotic in them". I laminate, carve, construct and deconstruct these animated materials into sensuous hybrid relationships, often punctuated with color, that mimic the sensuality, the imperfections, the frailties of the human body.
-- Susan Lyman
