There is a feeling in Addison Art Gallery. The love of art is felt and it is contagious.. It begins with the friendly welcoming by Helen Addison and her staff. This contributes to an informal ambiance. Summer Saturday evenings are "magical" with artists and visitors comfortably sipping wine and chatting while viewing the best new work in the area.
If you visit once, you will return.

I have been buying from the Addison Art Gallery since the mid 90's for both the Brass Key Guesthouse and Land's End Inn. My guests over the years have been so impressed with the collection that I have accumulated that has featured the newest and most talented artists on Cape Cod. This is all because of Helen Addison's dedication to her artist's talent and portraying their work in the best setting that fits. I have been amazed how Helen has remembered all the pieces that I have purchased over the years and she let's me know when something else is created from her artist that would work great with something I bought years earlier. There is no gallery better to help pick a piece that matches with the style that you want to exhibit in your space.

Helen Addison of the Addison Art Gallery in Orleans is a unique spirit with an extraordinary eye. To anyone who loves ART with a passion, her gallery is a must see on Cape Cod. I say that because her artists bring you visions of the cape not usually found in conventional spaces. Paul Schulenberg's rich colors and real people, Elizabeth Pratt's extraordinary explorations in watercolors, and Olivier Suire Verley's distinctly impressionist pictures reflect a Cape Cod few people see. No light houses,few starfish and only the occasional beach grass but loads of passion, creativity and love for this magical place. A MUST for the passionate collector.

Take a moment to visit this gallery! There are many talented local artists and this gallery hosts so many fun events! There are wine and cheese receptions at the open houses so the public can mingle with the artists, various showcases at local venues: libraries, museums, etc, to highlight the artists, there are opportunities to learn from the artists, and so much more! There are different mediums to view: watercolors, oils, sculptures, etc...wonderful experience! Plus the walls are constantly changing so visit often for a breathe of beautiful New England with Cape Cod flavor!!!
