White Line Woodblock in Provincetown, 2008

Garden Flowers by Edna Boies Hopkins

For anyone traveling to Cape Cod this sumer, Provincetown is once again host to a number of white line woodblock opportunities.

A collection of 50 color woodblock prints by Edna Boies Hopkins will be on exhibition at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, June 13 through Aug. 3. Curated by Dominique H. Vasseur, the exhibition is intended to show “the artist's evolution toward modernism.” PAAM is located at 460 Commercial St., Provincetown.

Also at PAAM will be two different classes in "white line printmaking," the technique that Hopkins used that was developed in Provincetown in the early 20th century.

And the Julie Heller Gallery is a place where there are always examples of Provincetown white line prints as well as many other works by artists who have passed through this beautiful Cape Cod art colony.
