At PAAM: Twrkv's gesture is paired with photographers pinhole percision


Provincetown, Massachusetts-The Provincetown Art Association and Museum presents an exhibition co-curated by Pasquale Natale and Midge Battelle titled Couple/Duo. The exhibition considers the creative parallels between duos of one kind or another. It couples poets and painters, sculptors and painters, and painters and painters. Some are friends, some are couples, some are have never met. Each pairing of work - whether similar or dissimilar - shows a relationship of palette, subject matter, composition, narrative, or other element. The exhibition continues through March 30.

For the exhibition, a dramatic graphite and wash on paper by Jack Tworkov (pictured left) is paired with a pinhole photograph by Marian Roth.

Marian Roth, a Guggenheim Fellow for 2000-2001, has been engaged in exploring the medium of pinhole photography and expanding its potential for over two decades. Roth's work has been widely exhibited and is the permanent collection of the DeCordova Museum, Provincetown Art Association and Museum, and in private collections. Her photography has been featured in a number of publications and a catalog of her work, Making Time: Marian Roth, was published in 2001 in conjunction with an exhibition at The Schoolhouse Art Center in Provincetown. She received a fellowship and residency from the C-Scape Dune Project to convert a dune shack to a pinhole camera.  She is represented locally by the Kobalt Gallery. Ms. Roth lives and works in Provincetown.
