We attended the opening of “A Peep At P-Town,” an exhibition at Mr. Ken Fulk’s Peepshow gallery which runs through September 23, 2012.
The exhibit features art work created in Provincetown, Massachusetts from 1977 to 2012, created by John Waters (who attended the event), Michael Stuetz, Jack Pierson, David Armstrong, Tim Donovan, Larry Collins, Mischa Richter, Fritz Bultman, John Dowd, and Frankie B. Rice.
The exhibit evolved from a design project Ken Fulk was involved with earlier in the year. “In May I was asked to create a travel-themed window installation for a design conference in Los Angeles,” he explained. “I chose Provincetown and conjured up a full-scale replica of the historic dune shacks along the National Seashore, where many of these artists worked and lived.”
He so enjoyed re-creating his beloved Provincetown (which he first visited in his 20s, and where he currently has a home), that he decided to bring the installation to San Francisco, and use it as an opportunity to highlight some of the talented artists who have focussed their energies in the small town at the tip of Cape Cod.
As we spotted a few major collectors at the opening party, Fulk has brilliantly brought these artists to the attention of some influential people who certainly seemed to be taking notice, as well they should.
