This place is chock full of different mediums of art - not just paintings but sculpture too! Marla (the owner) is fabulous and knows each of her artists personally. You shouldn't miss this place on a visit to Provincetown.

We love to drop in and see the new works of the artists in this gallery. Many different media are used and they are thought provoking and interesting works. The owner puts a lot of effort into the gallery and knows much about each artist and how they create their art.
