Anne Packard opened the doors to Packard Gallery in 1988. The heritage building is located in the historic Gallery District in Provincetown and was once home to a Christian Science Church.
Both her grandmother, Zella, and grandfather, Max Bohm (Gold Medalist of the Paris Salon in 1898 for his painting, “En Mer”) were artists. Max is credited for his leadership in the establishment of Provincetown as a successful artist’s colony. This artistic lineage is, in part, how Provincetown became so deeply rooted within the family.
Packard Gallery represents the works of Anne and Leslie Packard, two generations of widely exhibited and collected painters. Anne, a renowned landscape artist, paints simple, sparsely-rendered scenes of the Outer Cape and Europe. Leslie paints still-lifes speaking with the simplicity of pure color and elegant form.
While over 30 years later the gallery is still family-owned and run, in 2019.
