Peter Marshall has graduated from Hamilton College with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, and from Boston University with a Masters in Sculpture. He’s been vacationing in Provincetown since the mid 1970s, made a home here in 2000, and has shown his art in a number of local galleries, including Icon, Matrix Gallery, and the Ron Fowler Gallery. He has also shown at the Leslie Lohman Gallery in New York City, Gingerbread Square Gallery in Key West and 281 Gallery in Boston. He has also been in both open and juried shows at PAAM.
One of the reasons why he started doing white line prints was because he was intrigued by their Provincetown history, and liked the idea of helping to carry on the artistic tradition of a local printing technique. He’s tried to capture Provincetown’s past in both current activities and landscapes without sentimentalizing them. He enjoys using the muted palette similar to that of some of the earliest white line artists, but also likes changing the boundaries for a varied point of view. The longer he lives in Provincetown, the more he plans to depict the timeless activities of the town.
