Yes, this gallery contains some beautiful works of art. I imagine that if the proprietor can "see" that you have money to spend, she would be a delightful person to you. My experience was that of a rude and condescending nature, complete with snide remarks and an air of self-righteousness. Incredibly unprofessional. She did not greet me (not uncommon in... More

Addison represents some of the best local artists. The gallery is cozy, but manages to highlight each artist. Check the newspaper for their summer evening events. If you want good art that is collectible, this is one of the best.

I first started going to Addison Art Gallery about ten years ago and I've been a collector ever since. Helen Addison has a keen eye for artists and their work. It's an eclectic mix and it is always fun to visit to see what's new.

I highly recommend the Addison Gallery. I've been collecting art on the Cape since the 70's and at the Addison since it opened. Helen, the proprietor, has a wonderful eye for talent. She promotes her artists in national publications and she knows the tastes of her collectors and alerts us if a work we'd like comes in. If you're interested... More

The Addison Gallery is a charming gallery, well lite, and interesting settings. The artists are varied, and all very talented. The staff is warm and welcoming, and you can quietly browse about on your own, if you like. - A long time Orleans location, with many openings and events. You will enjoy yourself here.
