Artist William Evaul and The White-Line Print Tradition

Bill Evaul is a painter and printmaker who studied at Syracuse University, the Whitney Museum and Pratt Institute with Jacob Landau and George McNeil.

Bill Evaul

He received two fellowships from the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown and has lived and worked on Cape Cod ever since, giving lectures, leading workshops, producing artwork in a variety of media, and specializing in the white-line woodcut. As a contributing writer for Print Review and other magazines, he produced reviews and scholarly articles, including “The Provincetown Printers: Genesis of a Unique Woodcut Tradition,” which helped revive the obscure and nearly lost technique.

Evaul’s work is in numerous public collections including The Library of Congress, Robert Blackburn’s Printmaking Workshop, The Zimmerli Museum of Art at Rutgers University, The Georgia Museum of Art, The Sunrise Art Museum, The Kresge Art Museum, and the Provincetown Art Association and Museum.

The Periwinkle Shop

We have carved out space at WAG to revive The Periwinkle Shop, now open Wednesdays 9 AM to 3 PM and by appointment at 1740 Main Road, Westport Point, MA.

The original Periwinkle Shop was in operation from 1966 to 1972, April through September. WAG members sold handcrafted items and artwork. Volunteers staffed the small store, located across from the Westport Point post office.

Member Artists and Artisans are invited to sell their artwork in the shop. Contact WAG at info@westportartgroup.com if you are interested in adding your artwork or handcrafted items to the shop.
