Wellfleet's Art Scene

You won't have any trouble finding art galleries in central Wellfleet: there are more than 20 of them selling fine art and handcrafted items. Most are within a 10-minute walk of one another on the adjoining Main, Bank and Commercial Sts, but there are other galleries sprinkled throughout the town.

At any gallery, pick up the Wellfleet Art Galleries Association map, which has descriptive listings. Hours vary; some are open year-round, others from mid-May to mid-October. Many galleries host receptions with snacks and drinks on Saturday nights in July and August.
