Provincetown, MA: Big Fat Flowers, an exhibition curated by Vicky Tomayko and Bert Yarborough, opens at Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAAM) on Friday, June 14 at 8pm, and remains on view through Sunday, July 14. The conclusion of the exhibition coincides with PAAM's Annual Secret Garden Tour. More information about and tickets for the tour are available at www.paam.org/garden.
The genesis of this exhibition came when Vicky Tomayko was creating a poster as an example for her silkscreen class at Cape Cod Community College. When Bailey Bob Bailey saw her working on it, he said ” I have a piece for that show!” The exhibition was born of serendipity and now has 30 artists contributing work that relates, directly, indirectly or tangentially to the title theme.

Provincetown Art Association and Museum was established in 1914 by a group of artists and townspeople to build a permanent collection of works by artists of outer Cape Cod, and to exhibit art that would allow for unification within the community. Through a comprehensive schedule of exhibitions of local and national significance and educational outreach, Provincetown Art Association and Museum provides the public access to art, artists, and the creative process.
