Provincetown and art have been in a relationship for over one hundred years. Many art galleries feature the work of local artists and beyond. CNN Travel took notice of Provincetown’s art scene and status as America’s oldest continuous art colony.
East End & Commercial Street
Provincetown’s East End section is known as the gallery district due to the high concentration of art galleries in the area. A walk down Commercial Street will reveal over 40 art galleries to peruse for local art. Not to be missed are the weekly Friday night art openings—a perfect setting to meet the artists and gallery owners. Kick back, relax, sip some wine, and enjoy all Provincetown artists have to offer, now and all year round. For a full list of galleries, see the Provincetown Gallery Guide.
