AddisonCape Cod — Addison Art Gallery, the most active gallery in the region, will be celebrating its 20th Anniversary with a weekend of sharing and a party on Saturday, November 28 from 5 to 7. According to Helen Addison, “Acknowledging our 20 years of good fortune, we will be donating a portion of all sales made November 27 through 29 to Lower Cape Outreach.” The Gallery, located at 43 South Orleans Road (Route 28), Orleans, will be hosting a party open to the public with music by the Dan Sullivan Trio. Lower Cape Outreach (LCO) provides emergency assistance of food, clothing and financial support to individuals and families in Brewster, Chatham, Eastham, Harwich, Orleans, Provincetown, Truro and Wellfleet — leading to healthy, productive and self-sustaining lives as part of the Cape Cod community. 

LCO runs Katy’s Korner, a free clothing store in Orleans, where qualified clients may receive quality clothing and bedding. LCO has a team of advocates who screens clients and can authorize emergency financial assistance to help a family or individual survive a period of economic crisis. While LCO does not give cash directly to its clients, the organization makes direct payments on mortgages and rents, fuel and utility bills, medical and prescription drug expenses, child care and transportation, educational opportunities and a variety of expenses that can break an already stretched budget. LCO also has resources to help those clients who are willing and able to work prepare for the job search process and locate appropriate jobs.

The combined yearly total of cash, food and clothing distributed in 2014 was $1,416,126. This was accomplished through fundraisers, foundations and town grants, and the generosity of Cape Cod residents, businesses and seasonal visitors. Donations can be made online at lcoutreach.org/donategoh.htm.

Called “One of the nation’s leading year-round galleries” by American Art Collector magazine, Addison Art Gallery is highly respected locally as a welcoming and vibrant part of this community. “The gallery of choice for a large number of collectors, as well as the home of some of the most sought-after artists on Cape Cod.” — Cape Arts Review

The gallery is known for hosting national shows, creating intriguing endeavors such as “After Hopper” (a multi-year, multi-venue celebration of contemporary artists inspired by Edward Hopper and the places he painted on Cape Cod), partnering with other organizations (such as the Cape Cod National Seashore for the National Park Service’s 100th Anniversary in 2016), supporting the careers of talented emerging artists, and showing master artists from across the United States as well as Mexico and France.
