In this sweeping retrospective collection, artist Anne Packard presents the mature work of a keen observer of life, the world, and her beloved Cape Cod. Most pointedly, she captures Provincetown's hooked harbor and expansive sky as grand as a western sky above the plains, reaching beyond its precarious perch. Anne Packard's work is raw and mysterious, sharing her studies of personal solitude and a glimpse into her enduring creative devotion to the moods and grandeur of light. The work is accompanied by text from contributing writers, as well as a personal artist statement from Packard.
