Documentary Airs on 21st Century Artists in P-town

In the photo to the right, Rose Ireland paints at Chez Sven in 2007. We exchanged accommodation for a painting. At Chez Sven, we believe artists should be encouraged. They have so much to contribute to society. It is not easy to survive in today's world by selling art. Indeed, being an artist who lives on the Outer Cape has become a challenge. Today NECN ran a great documentary on this subject. ArtSpirit beautifully summarizes contemporary living in Provincetown, where artists may hold three jobs during peak-months in order to pay rent and create art the rest of the year.
