Deborah is now associated

with Mller White Fine Arts

in South Dennis.

Her work was recently acquired

for the collection

of the Cape Cod Museum of Art.


Deborah Forman studied art at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Museum School of Art. She has exhibited in galleries on the Cape, in New York, and Philadelphia. Internationally, she was part of a group show at the Sakai City Museum in Osaka, Japan. In the spring of 2013, she had a solo show of her mixed-media work at the Cape Cod Museum of Art in Dennis, Massachusetts. One of her collages is the collection of that museum. She is presently exhibiting her work at Miller White Fine Arts in South Dennis.

In addition to her art, Deborah, who holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Temple University in Philadelphia, is an author. She wrote a two-volume history of the Provincetown art colony, Perspectives on the Provincetown Art Colony ( Schiffer Publishing, 2011). An exhibition of work by artists included in the book was held that summer at the Cape Cod Museum of Art. Contemporary Cape Cod Artists: Images of Land and Sea, the first in a series of three books on Cape Cod artists, was published by Schiffer in the spring of 2013, and exhibitions of artists’ work related to the book were held at the Tao Water Gallery in West Barnstable and the Addison Art Gallery in Orleans. Deborah wrote the script, did the interviews, and worked on the filming for Art in Its Soul, a documentary on the history of the Provincetown art colony, which was aired on the Boston public television station, WGBH, and subsequently on other public television stations nationwide. 

She was editor in chief of Cape Cod VIEW magazine for five years. Prior to taking that position, she was features editor of the Cape Cod Times. During her work there, she interviewed many artists, including Robert Motherwell, Jack Tworkov, Myron Stout, Fritz Bultman, Chaim Gross, Raphael Soyer, Red Grooms, Jim Peters, Paul Resika, Arnold Newman, Joel Meyerowitz and Michael Mazur. Talking to painters and photographers has enriched her experience as an artist, she says. Each interview was like a mini-course in art. Her articles are published in the Cape Cod Times, Cape Cod VIEW, Cape Cod Life, and Art New England.


Deborah Forman’s abstract art digs deep into the universality of experience by unifying elements from the real world into her mixed-media works that illuminate the rhythmic play of shapes and colors and activate a personal experience for the viewer.
