444 Commercial Street

Gallery Voyeur

It’s unclear how many visitors ever came to Cape Cod in search of “handcrafted gifts and art objects from Mexico,” but those who did could have patronized the Mexican Shop in the 1960s and 70s. (Probably a more picturesque business than Rivard Electrical Contractors, which had been here in the 50s.) John Waters spent a summer in an apartment behind the Mexican Shop, with David Lochary (Raymond Marble in Pink Flamingos and Donald Dasher in Female Trouble) and Lochary’s boyfriend. The large storefront windows now frame the graphically overscaled paintings of Johniene Papandreas at Gallery Voyeur.
