Elizabeth Rowley Gallery: A new name and an expanded location

Celebrating Edward Hopper’s legacy on Cape Cod

After many years as a successful Orleans gallery, the Elizabeth Rowley Gallery has a new name—and an exciting new addition for a roster of artists widely collected on the Cape and beyond.

In honor of her father, Eugene Munn, who supported her artistic endeavors for decades, Elizabeth Rowley has renamed her gallery Munn Fine Arts. Also, making the most of her annual winter stay in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Rowley has recently established an innovative cross-marketing concept for the gallery’s collectors and the artists she represents.

“For years, many of my collectors with Cape Cod and Fort Lauderdale homes have been asking if any of the artists in our Cape gallery ever paint Fort Lauderdale images in the Impressionist style,” says Rowley. “Last summer, I approached some of the en plein air artists who spend the winter in Florida. Everyone seemed excited and all wanted to give the Florida paintings a try.”

Rowley notes that the artists started small with 8” x 10” oils. “In addition to selling a number of the Florida paintings to our loyal collectors through our web site, munnfinearts.com, I knocked on the doors of local Florida businesses,” Rowley says. “Jeff Rudd, owner of ‘The Treasure Trove,’ not only bought two paintings, but called a number of the other business owners in the neighborhood and gave me a verbal introduction, which helped me sell even more paintings.” Rowley says the experience was a wonderful opportunity for Munn’s artists to be able to sell paintings in the winter when her Orleans gallery is closed.

A show “The Cape Cod/Fort Lauderdale Art Connection” is planned at Munn Fine Arts, 84 Route 6A, on August 15 from 5 to 7 p.m. For more information, call 508-247-0444, or visit munnfinearts.com.
