Winter Arts

In planning for your winter escape to Provincetown, it's always good to know there are still galleries to enjoy and places to get supplies for your own art endeavors. Here are a few suggestions.

For the art lover, an off-season gallery stroll is a great way to combine a brisk walk outside with the warm serenity of absorbing beauty in an uncrowded gallery take time to linger and savor the views. This year, the Arthur Egeli Gallery is open 12 to 4 Saturdays and Sundays and weekdays by appointment. Currently, you can see work by John Clayton, Arthur Egeli, Margaret McWethy, Jerome Greene and Stephen Griffin, among others.

Poli Gallery is also open weekends from 12- 5 pm. Come and view her collection of paintings, giclees, note cards, iPhone cases decorated with selections of her artwork, her renowned “Luna” series of dog portraits (or you can order a custom pet portrait of your best friend!) and more. She also has budget-friendly “dog tags” and signature tote bags to bring home! Owner Nicoletta Poli confided to me that she'll be having a new art reception on Valentine's weekend, as well! Of course, no art lover's visit is complete without a visit to Provincetown Art Association and Museum! Their winter hours are Thursday through Sunday, 12-5 pm, and you have the option to view the collection and exhibitions, attend a Gallery Conversations lecture, see a film and more!

Do you prefer to make your own art? Well, on Tuesday and Thursdays you can pick up supplies at Artist Loft. Owner Rick Campbell notes that customers can call him if they need to stop in for something particular on other days, as well. After you've created your art work you can head down Commercial Street to Pilgrim Framing (at the rear of 372 Commercial on Arch Street)! They specialize in unique designs with superior customer service, competitive pricing and exceptional turnaround time. They offer both retail and wholesale sales and services, to include conservation and archival solutions, handcrafted driftwood and reclaimed wood molding options, specialty cut matting, shadow boxes, stretching and crating services, and creative design consultation services. Pilgrim Framing is open Monday-Friday from 9 am to 4 pm.

For those wanting body art, Kris Smith is on the job at Coastline Tattoo from Wednesdays through Saturdays, and other days by appointment. Whether you want a rose or snowflake, eagles or bears, a tribute to Mom or a fantasy figure, you'll find a design to suit your taste, and if you don't, Kris is dedicated to working with you to create the custom tattoo design of your choice! Kris' studio and staff are licensed with the Town of Provincetown, have documented experience and proof of apprenticeship, certification in First Aid, CPR, and OSHA blood borne pathogens (including universal precautions, waste disposal, hand washing techniques, disinfection, and sterilization methods and techniques).

It’s the perfect time of year to enjoy the creativity that Provincetown offers!
