National Seashore to Host Photography by Mark Preu

EASTHAM –For the months of January and February, the Cape Cod National Seashore will exhibit photographs from artist Mark Preu as part of its Perspectives: Seeing Cape Cod National Seashore through Art series.

Mark’s collection of images is drawn from his work from three stays in the dune shacks and other day trips in the national seashore’s Dune Shacks of Peaked Hill Bars Historic District.

The exhibition includes photographs of wildlife, plants, and dune shacks, as well as large format panoramas, one of Mark’s specialties.

Mark has a life-long connection to the Cape, first spending summers, and then living year-round in Brewster since 1971.

All prints, matting, and framing are done by Mark in his home studio.

He has been selling his work for over 20 years in local galleries and at his home gallery in Brewster, which he shares with his wife, potter Diane Heart.

An artist reception with refreshments will be held on January 14 from 1:30-3:30 PM at the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham.

The Visitor Center is located at the intersection of Route 6 and Nauset Road and is open daily from 9 AM to 4:30 PM, with staff to assist with activity planning.

Visit the museum, view a park film, enjoy panoramic views of Salt Pond and Nauset Marsh, and shop in the gift and bookstore featuring national seashore-related items.
