Wellfleet Affordable Housing
We have posters by Helen Miranda Wilson, which we're selling to benefit the Wellfleet Affordable Housing Trust Fund.
Helen Miranda Wilson, who grew up and attended school in Wellfleet, had her first exhibition at the Cherry Stone Gallery in Wellfleet in 1971. She shows regularly at the Albert Merola Gallery in Provincetown, and is represented by DC Moore Gallery in New York City. Her work is included in the collections of several prestigious museums and many private collections. She moved back to Wellfleet full time in 1999 and began serving on various appointed or elected boards and committees, including the Wellfleet Housing Authority and the Affordable Housing Task Force. She was elected to the Select board in 2003 and served from 2003 to 2006. As she devoted more and more time to serving the town, her art practice was invigorated and transformed: starting in 2001 she stopped working representationally from direct observation and began making "abstract" paintings with no recognizable subject matter.
