Berta Walker Gallery presents "the History of American Art" as seen through the eyes of Provincetown, the oldest, largest, longest ongoing art colony in America, and, in 1915, the birthplace of American theatre.
Provincetown is also the first landing place of the Pilgrims, landing in 1620 where the Mayflower Compact, the earliest and successful first attempt at Democracy, was written and signed.
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."
