Ed Walsh is honored to show his work at the Cortile Gallery located at 230 Commercial Street
in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Studies in China, Japan, and Italy have expanded Ed’s
appreciation for the wide-ranging potential of color and light. He has an interest in architecture,
and years of sailing have fostered a strong love of the sea.
Ed often reflects these passions in his work, typically painting with acrylic.
His subjects range from portraiture to abstraction. His love for the Provincetown seascape
has him returning often to the interplay of light and ocean for which the town is famous.
Whenever possible, he paints the view from sea to land.
His first visit to Provincetown was in 1954, and he has made a home there since 1987.
The town, its architecture, landscape, people, and most of all, its incomparable light,
have never ceased to work their magic on him. He finds inspiration in the shadows
and shapes of his garden, as well as the ever-changing moods of Cape Cod Bay.
He studied the Philosophy of Art with Paul Weiss and painting with Franny Golden,
Rob Longley, Mary Giammarrino, Cynthia Packard, as well as Cedric and Joannette Egeli.
Ed’s work can be found in private collections in Provincetown, Boston, Chicago, Miami,
San Francisco, Atlanta, San Antonio, Los Angeles, New York City, and Washington D.C.
as well as France and Canada. Local exhibits include the Fine Arts Work Center
along with the Provincetown Art Association and Museum.
Ed Walsh grew up in Boston, attended Catholic University in Washington DC
as an undergraduate, and received his Masters Degree from the
University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He currently divides his time
between Provincetown and South Beach.
