Berta Walker Gallery presents JOSEPHINE and SALVATORE DEL DEO Opening Reception Friday, August 14, 6 - 8 pm

Berta Walker Gallery is proud to help premiere Josephine Del Deo's recent book "The Watch at Peaked Hill, Outer Cape Cod Dune Shack Life, 1953-2003" along with new and older paintings by master artist Salvatore Del Deo focusing on the Outer Cape's environment of land, sea, dunes, fishermen. Additionally, the gallery's artists will show a variety of paintings related to these subjects, honoring Josephine Del Deo and her unique work on behalf of our community and artistic history.

"The Watch at Peaked Hill, Outer Cape Cod Dune Shack Life, 1953-2003" just released by Schiffer publishers, chronicles the ongoing relationship between members of the Provincetown arts community and the dune dwellers and dune shacks on the outer shore and the influence of that life on the entire community of artists and writers. It reveals the ongoing trials and tribulations of preserving the dunes while still allowing artists and writers to live amongst them. 

Salvatore Del Deo is always having a dialogue in his paintings with the world he lives in and especially with the nature of the Outer Cape. Through the over sixty years of his painting career, coinciding with time he & Josephine spent in the dunes, he has created an immense and diverse body of work. His is a style that seems to traverse the continuum from the   realistic to the abstract, with a natural fluidity available only to one who is thoroughly centered. His visual vocabulary was built up over years of study and looking and seeing.  His view of the world is both engaging and compassionate, achieved by a rich palette and a soulful perspective.
