Join us for a very local edition of our Local Lens filmmaker series, showcasing the work of regionally-based or Cape connected artists. Wellfleet native and filmmaker Eben Portnoy will present a selection of his short films and music videos. Raised in Wellfleet and a Nauset grad, Portnoy currently lives in Los Angeles, where he recently graduated with an MFA in Film Directing from UCLA. He is currently writing and developing several feature-length projects, including a supernatural thriller set on the Outer Cape. Tonight's screening, followed by a Q&A with the director, will include Wild Love, Portnoy’s MFA thesis and winner of a Sloan Science Foundation Fellowship. Set in Costa Rica, Wild Love is a jungle romance about a young primatology research assistant who learns some unexpected lessons from his wild monkey cousins. Valencia, based on a short story by actor James Franco (who also executive produced the film), is an impressionistic glimpse at the exploits of a group of rebellious pre-teen skaters. Throw in a tale of a software engineer who discovers the internet is becoming conscious (Bodies for a Global Brain) and a tribute to the anarchic experimental-theater troupes of the sixties (What is Janet Lynn?), and you get a sense of Portnoy’s eclectic and adventurous sensibility.

Meet the artist and enjoy refreshments and live music provided by 12-string guitarist Laura Yoccarino. Wellfleet artist Megan Hinton brings the glorious region of Brittany, France to Preservation Hall this Summer 2016. In the fall of 2015 Hinton was awarded an artist residency to live and work at La Vignette, a stone cottage and atelier on the grounds of La Maison de la Grande Vigne in Dinan, France. La Maison was the former residence of well known 20th Century French painter Yvonne Jean-Haffen, who bequeathed her home to the municipality of Dinan after she died in 1993. During her stay Hinton executed numerous watercolor and gouache paintings on site and in the studio depicting the region. Four of Megan’s watercolors were acquired by La Musée de Jean-Haffen for its permanent collection. Since her return to Wellfleet she is referencing the work made during her residency to make large scale oil paintings that convey the memory and transformation of the original Breton scenes in her painterly fashion. The exhibition runs from July 19 to September 6, 2016.

Join us for a special night of music with three fabulous LOCAL female musicians, Annie Lynch, Catie Flynn and Ashley Bilodeau opening the show. Annie and Catie are longtime friends and honed their songwriting chops right here on their native Cape Cod. Catie was the winner of the 2010 “Cape Cod Songwriters Competition and attended Berklee College of Music in Boston. Upon graduating she moved to Nashville Tennessee, where she toured and recorded with her American group The Firemans' Daughter. In 2013, Catie released her solo album entitled “Let Me Down Slow”. After years of violin lessons during her childhood, Annie moved on to the guitar and singing, truly finding her voice as a singer/songwriter. In the mid-2000’s Annie joined musical forces with other Berklee grads to form Annie & The Beekeepers. The band went on to record an EP followed by a full-length album in 2013, and have toured extensively across the USA, sharing stages with many notable current artists. Tonight, these two longtime Cape Cod friends will “Take it back to where it all started many years ago on the Cape, with two dear friends and a lifelong musical sisterhood.”
