The next program in Cape Cod National Seashore’s winter series on the arts will feature an exhibit and presentation by Joan Pereira, “An Art History of Provincetown,” to be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 18 at the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham. The program is free.

Pereira’s program will focus on the art history of the town, as well as her experiences working within the Provincetown art community. Pereira is an accomplished artist whose commissioned works grace the walls of municipal buildings locally and around the country. She has been living and working in Provincetown since 1955. In addition to the presentation, she will exhibit pieces of her work at the Salt Pond Visitor Center for most of the month of March. Her works reflect the character of the Outer Cape and Cape Cod National Seashore. She is best known as a landscape painter, and she works in both pastel and glass mosaics.

Pereira’s program is part of the series “Perspective: Seeing Cape Cod National Seashore Through the Creative Arts.” The series includes presentations by artists, authors, and musicians. It is hosted by the National Seashore, and sponsored by its partner organization, Friends of Cape Cod National Seashore.
