Today I spent a pleasant rainy day volunteering at the Galley West Art Gallery in Orleans, MA, where my photography work is on display. It is a lovely little community gallery on the campus of the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit, at Monument Road and Rte. 28. Founded a year ago, it features the work of artists from the Lower and Outer Cape Cod towns of Brewster, Chatham, Harwich, Orleans, Eastham, Wellfleet, Truro and Provincetown. The Gallery building is pretty awesome... the front half is part of an old tavern (circa 1829), and the back is the up-turned hull of the shipwreck Orissa, which washed up on Nauset beach in 1894 (after spending 37 years under water!). For more on the history of the space, follow this link.
So! If you like art or old buildings, or both, and/or if you are an artist interested in exhibiting your work, stop by and see the gallery. If you are the latter, keep an eye on the calls for art, and sign up for the mailing list. You can find both on the GWAG website.
