Jo Hay Studio, Ptown, Provincetown

Silence, Acrylic on Board by artist Chris López at Jo Hay Studio – Provincetown

One of my favorite things to do when in Provincetown is to visit the galleries on Friday evenings when many of them open their doors with new exhibits. Tomorrow, Friday, July 8th the Jo Hay Studio now located at 167 Commercial Street opens with their new show, SIMPLY MASCULINE by artist Chris López.  The work pays tribute to those who identify as Bears on the eve of Bear Week 2016.  Should you happen to visit Provincetown check out this show which runs from Friday, July 8 –  Friday, July 15.
