Photo Exhibit of P-town Dune Shacks to be Displayed at National Seashore

EASTHAM – A photographic exhibit featuring the dune shacks of Provincetown comes to the Cape Cod National Seashore’s Salt Pond Visitor Center in October.

Photographs by Jane Paradise will be on display as part of the seashore’s ongoing series – “Perspectives: Seeing Cape Cod National Seashore Through Art” – from October 2 through 30.

Writers, artists and families made summer homes on the back shore of Provincetown in the early 1900s in the dwellings affectionately called the dune shacks.

Some were originally lifesaving huts from the late 1890s. The dwellings that exist today were constructed from the 1920s through 1950s, often out of salvaged materials and even pieces from shipwrecks.

Paradise gives a glimpse of what it is like to live in a dune shack and experience the landscape.

Her work captures her visits to various dune shacks in the national seashore over the course of a decade.

Most recently Paradise’s photographs of the shacks were featured in the March/April 2017 issue of ArtScope Magazine.

A public reception for the artist will be held Saturday, October 6 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham.
