Provincetown, MA: Provincetown
Art Association and Museum (PAAM) is proud to announce the 2011 Lillian
Orlowsky and William Freed Foundation Grant recipients Joan Ryan of
East Boston, MA; Karen Cappotto of Provincetown, MA; and Deborah Martin
of Twentynine Palms, CA.
The recipients were each awarded $10,000 and a three person exhibition at PAAM in fall 2012.
were more than 250 applicants, hailing from 32 states and two
countries. Applicants ranged in age from 45 to 84, and were 59% female
and 41% male.
The late Lillian Orlowsky and William Freed were former students of Hans Hofmann
who studied with him in both New York and Provincetown. They were very
active at PAAM as artist members, instructors in the summer school, and
they served on a variety of committees throughout their 50 years on Cape
Cod. Lillian, in particular, was sensitive to the challenges artists
face, especially those working against the mainstream or outside of
popular schools of art. Her desire to provide financial support to
mature artists through this generous endowment gift speaks to her
passionate commitment to art for art's sake and art created regardless
of the demands and whims of the marketplace.

Welcome to the family of Cape School friends and supporters! We
have been very busy over the past year reorganizing as a non-profit,
and making plans to once again be the school where serious artists
come to learn Charles Hawthorne's and Henry Hensche's method of seeing
and painting color. Last year, our first annual fundraising auction gave us enough operating capital to continue through the winter and to plan a rich curriculum for the 2011 season. We are hoping this year's auction will be even more successful!
We invite you all to come and help us celebrate the successful first season of the reborn Cape School of Art!
