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).

Michael Walden at Benchmark Inn
"Seashore Paintings"

The style all started with the seashore. I was told about the 12x12 auction at the Provincetown Art Association & Museum, and wanted to enter a piece. I had this idea of breaking up my canvas with a simple grid of one inch squares. I always loved the geometry of the bath house at Herring Cove beach, so it seemed like the perfect fit. It was the beginning of this journey of finding simple lines and colors to express the things I see, the way I feel about the land water and space around me. As I move on, I'm finding the journey, or the concept isn't so simple after all.

Thank heavens for the National Seashore. It's so easy to remove yourself from the craziness of Provincetown during the height of the season, or to be invigorated with life during the coldest most desolate months of winter. Never the same, always changing... Just like everything else.

For 2011 Gallery Ehva season Irén Handschuh curates "Polylogue" invitation exhition with work by four of her companeras.

The artists in this exhibit have shared a dialogue with me for many years. Their work and conversations have given me courage, stretched my thinking and often enchanted me. We have worked together, shown together, talked, played and laugh our heads off. They have spured my growth.

I want to share an exhibition space with them because their mind and art should be known and seen in this part of the world. -- Irén Handschuh

The Relationship Ride: A Usable, Unusual, Transformative Guide with Julie Colwell

Did you ever have the thought, "relationships are so hard!" Or "It shouldn't be so hard to be with this person--it must not be meant to be!"

Have you tried to read books, go to couples therapy, or even attend workshops on relationships, but thought the whole thing was too boring or too much work?

Julie ColwellMeet Dr. Julie Colwell, who has written a book called The Relationship Ride: A Usable, Unusual, Transformative Guide. Dr. Colwell believes that, if approached from the right perspective, relationships are the most effective vehicle for personal transformation.

"I've noticed how many books on relationships are very serious—even boring. They keep the attention on what's wrong and how to fix those wrongs.  My book offers something I believe is more useful and precious and fun. It assumes that two people together create a relation-Ship ride that actually leads the way toward our souls' full evolution."

In The Relationship Ride, Dr. Colwell changes our perceptions about what is possible. "Instead of 'settling for,' I teach people about riding the waves of initial bliss into a long-term relationship of mutual joy and in-loveness. I wanted to make this book very usable, interesting, even fun—the kind of book that is dog-eared, well-used, and water-logged from getting pulled out in the middle of difficulty. There are lots of concrete tools, maps, and exercises for everything I talk about."

Dr. Colwell is an expert on the ins and outs of lesbian relationships (she's been with her partner, Kathy, for 23 years, and has worked extensively with the lesbian community for the last 25). She recently made quite a splash at the Michigan Womyn's Music Festival, where women were wowed by her warm, funny, and engaging presentation style.

She will be reading from and signing The Relationship Ride at the Gallery Ehva on Wednesday, October 12, from 4-6pm (free).  She'll be teaching some of her tools on Thursday and Friday, October 13 and 14, from 12-3pm; ($50/person/day or $75 for both days.)
