427 Commercial Street

Lovinger Gallery

The photographers Gurli and Jeff Lovinger opened their gallery here in 2006. This was the Eva De Nagy Gallery, founded in 1960, from the late 1970s through at least the early 1990s, when Gillian Drake described it (in The Complete Guide to Provincetown) as an “interesting gallery of African and Asiatic art, ivory and semiprecious stone carvings, bronzes from Nepal, 17th-century Philippine santos,” and De Nagy’s drawings. By 2004, it was the Clibbon Gallery, which subsequently moved to 120 Commercial.

One thought on “427 Commercial Street

  1. The house/gallery was designed by Eva’s son, Peter Stuart, an architect. He also did work on the former Yeffee Kimball house across the street, which his mother had bought. I believe that Eva’s gallery was built on land owned by Yeffee.
