PROVINCETOWN – In celebration of the Center for Coastal Studies 40th Anniversary, Provincetown Library’s First Annual Moby-Dick Reading Marathon, and the Appearances Eco-Arts Festival, the Center for Coastal studies has announced two new art shows that highlight whales, and whale research and rescue.

Gallery artists celebrate the Provincetown Public Library’s first annual Moby-Dick Marathon Reading with a group show at the Julie Heller East gallery.

The exhibition features historical whaling prints, Moby Dick word art using 19th century wooden type, contemporary and modernist works on paper, painting and sculpture – art that evokes imagined breaches, shipwrecks, and marine life on the Outer Cape.

A percentage of sales will benefit the Center for Coastal Studies Marine Animal Entanglement Response program.

The event runs through May 5 at Julie Heller East on Commercial Street.

The center has partnered with the Sage Inn and Lounge to display a series of photographs illustrating the Center for Coastal Studies’ whale research and rescue work.

The show opens today with a one-off video exhibition highlighting the Center’s major programs – humpback whale studies, education and marine policy, coastal geology, water quality monitoring and marine animal entanglement response.

The photographs will remain on display for the duration of the Appearances Eco-Arts Festival.
