Welcome to the Woodman/Shimko Gallery website.

Please enjoy the site as you wonder from artist to artist and view the creations from painters, photographers, sculptors and other wonderfully creative men and women from Palm Springs, Provincetown and elsewhere from around the country.

The window displays at the gallery uniquely present the art in a way no other gallery tries to create. The display of any store or gallery is the eye to the environment you will experience once inside.

Gallery shows are usually on Friday evenings but please check our schedule for the up and coming shows..

The Woodman/Shimko Gallery is known for not only showing creative and contemporary work but showcasing in a way unlike other galleries.

Artist Notes

A word from our artists

“Photography is art: not merely a picture. It should arouse curiosity and stimulate emotion. Ideally, the viewer will be drawn in where contemplation is evoked, thus allowing self interpretation and appreciation.”

 

– Ronald David Erskine

“It seems to me that any work of art – be it a musical composition, a sculpture, or choreography in dance, is an attempt to take something intrinsically intangible in nature; an emotion, a thought, feeling, belief or impression and to translate it into physical terms, in this case onto a two-dimensional canvas.”

 

– Russell Bennett

“Art is not a living,

it is life itself.”

 

– Steve Bowersock

“My sculpture, … is how I have communicated my thoughts throughout the years and my interpretations takes form with suggestions of growth, evolution, change- consistently dynamic.”

 

– James Messana

“Light is a living presence that supports everything.”

 

– Chet Jones

“My art is a meditation on, as well as an attempt to capture, the moment when a complex inner life meets the unyielding outside world. ”

 

– Cassandra Complex
