The Provincetown Art Association and Museum holds an annual Members Show. Members submit a single work on a 12″ x 12″ Masonite panel. There is a silent auction of the works for the duration of the show with bidding starting at $125. Forty percent goes to support the Museum.
I went to the Dark Mountain, the home of Uncivilization, and found a living culture. I didn’t know that’s what I would find, my hopes tied up and caught up in theoretical frameworks positing the likelihood of just such a thing. The flimsiness of my previous scope of interaction having been overcompensated by mental calculations carefully assembled as if in a geometric proof, as if by reading the perturbations of the orbits of the visible planets I could intuit the existence of another beyond the range of my senses. Yet that is what I found. I’m not only grateful, but moved by the breadth and depth of what I found. Not what, but who.
