“NATURAL HABITAT” A Study of Man and Nature.
Jul 10 – Jul 17, 2019

Featuring: CRIS LOPEZ, ANDREW MONCRIEF, GIN STONE

Chris Lopez has become well known in Provincetown during Bear Week for his stunning portrait paintings of men, focusing on the Bear Community. As stated by Lopez “My artwork is not sexual, rather intimate and comforting.” The paintings are full of detail, capturing the very essence of a man.  Lopez is from Barcelona Spain and currently lives Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

Andrew Moncrief calls himself a “queer-centric artist”. Andrew’s paintings and drawings are a constant study of sexual identity , the male form and how we, as a society, struggle with body image. The works are abstract yet recognizable and sophisticated at the same time.  Moncrief grew up on Vancouver Island and settled in Montreal, Canada. 

Gin Stone creates sculptures in the shapes of animals, often bears, by using reclaimed fishing cord and other found objects rescued from the ocean.  Beautifully executed detail in her work is obvious at first sight.  Her menagerie of animals is whimsical and fun.  She is an ardent environmentalist and lover of living creatures.Stone is from New York and has lived and worked in Cape Cod for nearly 20 years.
