Art & History: The Anchor Inn
175 Commercial Street, Provincetown, MA
The Anchor Inn Beach House was established in the 1950s. It was at one time also known as The Anchor and Ark Club. Built in the 1800’s, it was originally a private residence.
According to “Building Provincetown” and its website www.BuildingProvincetown.com, “A handsomely ample corner turret, ornate pediment and neo-Classical details on the broad front porch distinguish this Queen Anne-style house, built around 1870 and subsequently expanded. The Anchor and Ark Club, a Masonic organization (the emblems symbolize a well-grounded hope and a well-spent life), was founded in 1935 and headquartered here. This was also the Seagull Restaurant.”
The Inn will present art by Gabe Capuano (1945-1994) this summer. The public is invited to view many works on paper in the lounge of the Inn daily from 3-9 pm.
Opening receptions will be held from 5-10 pm on July 1, 15, 29 and August 29, 2016.
