Wellfleet: A Top Cape Cod Art Destination
In 1980, the Wellfleet Art Gallery Association sprang to life with the sole goal of establishing Wellfleet as a premier Cape Cod art gallery town. Forty years later, Wellfleet has become one of the Cape’s top art destinations, with more than a dozen exceptional galleries. Take a stroll downtown and you’ll stumble upon studio after studio filled with the work of creative artists from near and far. Ranging in style from modern to impressionist, realist to mixed media, you can connect with an original piece for your wall, shelf, or yard. Take home a memory from Wellfleet from one (or more) of the galleries below.
