Artist Karen Cappotto’s landscapes are in the Provincetown Art Association and Museum’s Permanent collection and she is a founding member of the Provincetown Commons, a nonprofit focused on developing support and economic opportunities for the creative community of Provincetown.  Poet Lisa Allen Ortiz is the author of Guide to the Exhibit, recipient of the 2016 Perugia Press Prize.
