"My white line wood cuts reflect a theme I have been working on since 1996 -- all roads lead to the beach."
A native Bostonian, Ed Crane’s work reflects his lifelong love of the New England shoreline, particularly the Outer Cape. “Since I am largely self-taught, I continuously learn and explore different media and objects to express my affinity to Provincetown and Truro.”
Winding roads through dunes that eventually head to the ocean reflect the anticipation and excitement one feels traveling to (or living on) the Outer Cape. The population and the architecture may change -- but the light, the ocean, the dunes, the winding roads, the history of the place stay the same.
Ed Crane had his first solo show at the Provincetown Group Gallery in 1996, and has shown in Provincetown venues including the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, School House Gallery, Cortland Jessup Gallery, and at the Julie Heller Gallery, where he presently shows his work.
Ed has been on the faculty of the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, and at the Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill where he taught white line printing.
