On a street full of art and artists, the painter Jane Kogan (b 1939) makes her home in a property she’s owned since 1979. [A profile appears on the Provincetown Artist Registry.] That’s her work, Corner of Baker and Pearl, from 1983, at right, showing 1 Baker Avenue. Kogan is a familiar face downtown as the manager of the Provincetown Bookshop, 246 Commercial Street. She holds a B.A. from Brandeis and an M.F.A. from Columbia. She won a Fulbright scholarship in 1961 and, seven years later, was in the second cohort of visual arts fellows at the Fine Arts Work Center. That was when she moved to Provincetown.
Her house was built in 1878, the Historic District Survey says. From 1926 until 1979, it was owned by George S. Chapman Jr. (b ±1901), a teller and corporator of the Seamen’s Savings Bank, and his wife, Mary V. Chapman (b ±1900). • Historic District Survey • Assessor’s Online Database ¶ Posted 2013-06-03
