Below is a photo I took of Sergio with Armistead Maupin who was visiting Provincetown a few years ago. He’s a very friendly person who has a lot to share. I’d encourage anyone interested to get tickets before this sells out.
Launched in 1976 as a groundbreaking serial in the San Francisco
Chronicle, Armistead Maupin’s iconic Tales of the City series has
since blazed its own trail through popular culture. Hear Armistead Maupin talk
about creating the series and his new book, a memoir titled Logical
Family (October 2017), which grew out of his critically acclaimed
one-man show of the same name.
This is the first exhibition of original prints by the artist in Boston, bringing together 50 works that highlight Escher’s imagination and ability. Infinite Dimensions investigates some of the themes that defined his work, including tessellations (arrangements of repeated shapes that fit together with no gaps), perspective and perception conundrums, sphere and water reflections, and transformations. Among the highlights is the 13-foot-long Metamorphosis II (1939-40), a monumental exploration of the fluidity of time and space in which a chessboard, hive of bees, rustic village, and other elements merge into a continuous woodcut printed from 20 blocks.
About the artist: Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972) is one of the world’s most famous and prolific graphic artists, making 448 lithographs, woodcuts / wood engravings and 2,000+ drawings and sketches. He was born in the Netherlands and attended the School for Architecture and Decorative Arts in Haarlem.
