About the Gallery

The Burdick Art Gallery is celebrating fifty years in Wellfleet, ‘The Art Gallery Town’. A quieter cousin of neighboring Provincetown’s bustling art community, this Outer Cape village hosts over a dozen galleries within easy walking distance in the town center, where Charles Burdick opened his first gallery in 1967. Ten years ago his daughter Kate bought the carriage house at Bank Square, moving the Burdick Art Gallery to 25 Bank Street where it is directed by her sister Margaret.

The sisters currently show the work of the Burdick Family, including watercolors by their mother Joanne, by Margaret and by Charles, as well as his acrylics and Kate’s oil paintings.

They also display the oil paintings of local artists F. S. Morgan, J. Kent Planck, Lee Ann Fanning, Monica Rozak, and Nancy Nicol and acrylic paintings by Carl Lawson. The gallery showcases John Best’s art glass boxes, windows and stands and his wife Elizabeth’s jewelry, as well as Susan Posmentier’s ceramics.
