Presenting the history of American Art as seen through the eyes of Provincetown

Berta Walker Gallery has been highlighting the rich cultural heritage of Provincetown's more than 100-year old art colony since 1990, and is known for showing a wide variety of important Provincetown-affiliated art and artists.

In 2015, Berta Walker opened a second gallery in Wellfleet. The new gallery continues Walker's ongoing interest in connecting the creative history of the Outer Cape Towns of Provincetown, Truro and Wellfleet, which together have housed and nurtured The Provincetown Art Colony for over 125 years.

Wrote Andre Van Der Wende in Provincetown Arts: "Berta Walker's gallery mission is voiced in the motto that has guided her over the years, 'Presenting the History of American Art as seen through the Eyes of Provincetown'. She aims for nothing less than documenting the role that artists associated with Provincetown have played in the major movements in American art in the last [century] . . . making the past vital to the living artists she represents, replenishing the present with a curatorial finesse that is highly regarded."
