Pop culture has long been Shank Painter’s stock in trade. High culture, not so much — until 2009, when Ewa Nogiec (pictured), a photographer, painter, illustrator, and graphic designer, opened Gallery Ehva, specializing in Provincetown artists. (That is Donna Dodson’s Seagull Cinderella pictured outside the gallery.) In 1981, when martial law was imposed in her native Poland, she learned about Provincetown while visiting New York. Two years later, she moved here. Her company, ENS Graphics, worked on Provincetown Arts. She collaborated with Norma Holt on the murals at Fishermen’s Wharf. She designed the Historic Provincetown Walking Tour map. She has written, illustrated, and edited the web magazine I Am Provincetown since 2000. Her invaluable Provincetown Artist Registry documents hundreds of artists. More recently, she has organized the 10 Days of Art Festival.
