I am enjoying my traditional late summer vacation to Wellfleet on Cape Cod. While I am away collecting great find to share with you, I am featuring a few of my past posts about this great spot. From my 2015 visit…


Well it is official, we are going back to Wellfleet – the charming Cape Cod harbor town – for our traditional vacation next week, and I can’t wait. One of the places I look forward to returning to is the the Frying Pan Gallery right on Wellfleet Harbor.

About the Frying Pan Gallery: “In it you will find steel sailfish, stripers, tuna, bait-fish, horseshoe crabs and more by artist/owner Steve Swain, as well as paintings, etchings, jewelry, furniture, photographs and more by other Cape Cod artists and artisans. Situated in the historic harbor area at the end of Commercial Street and across from the Town Pier, the Frying Pan provides a new outlet for local art, in an old wrapper. The building was originally assembled in the early 1900s by Wellfleet oystermen with pieces washed ashore from nearby Billingsgate Island. Many other structures were floated off this once great Cape Cod town when it succumbed to erosion and was finally submerged.”

The Frying Pan Gallery features the great work of artist Steve Swain – like his steel horseshoe crab sconces (above right) which are just so cool.

From my personal photo collection – a view of the outside of the Frying Pan Gallery last summer:
