burd2One of the great pleasures of a trip to Wellfleet (the charming Cape Cod seaside port where I just completed my traditional late-summer vacation) is browsing the many art galleries around town. I have posted about a few of the galleries in the past and on this trip I discovered one that I had never poked my nose into before – The Burdick Art Gallery.

About The Burdick Art Gallery: “The Burdick Art Gallery represents three generations of award winning artists: parents Charles and Joanne, daughters Kate and Margaret and grandchildren Anna and Ben, exhibiting landscape, figure and still life in acrylic, watercolor, oil, ceramic, and pastel.”

So much talent in one family – all on display in the charming gallery. I was particularly attracted to the small scale watercolors of Margaret Burdick: “Margaret Burdick is the daughter of artists Charles and Joanne. She studied with Henry Hensche and Phillip Malicoat in Provincetown and attended The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Her work is in private collections around the world, has been exhibited in New England, New York and Florida, and is frequently shown at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum.”

I love Ms. Burdick’s work, like this painting, evocative of the great Edward Hopper who painted many scenes inspired by the same landscape:

The Burdick Art Gallery is located at 25 Bank Street in the charming harbor town of Wellfleet, MA.
