Berta Walker Gallery

Within this unremarkable roadside building (1972) is one of the most respected and pedigreed showcases in town: the Berta Walker Gallery. Berta Walker was the founding director of the Graham Modern Gallery in New York. Her father, Hudson D. Walker, was an influential art patron and one of the forces behind the Fine Arts Work Center. Her great-grandfather Thomas B. Walker was the original benefactor of the Walker Art Gallery in Minneapolis. Her gallery, which opened in 1989, specializes in Provincetown artists. Walker currently represents Donald Beal; Varujan Boghosian; Romolo Del Deo and his father, Salvatore Del Deo; Elspeth Halvorsen; Robert Henry and his wife, Selena Trieff; Brenda Horowitz; Penelope Jencks; John “Jack” Kearney; Anne MacAdam; Erna Partoll; Sky Power; Blair Resika and her husband, Paul Resika; and Peter Watts; as well as the estates of Hans Hofmann, Herman Maril, Nancy Whorf and others.
