Four Eleven Gallery History :
For over 50 years, the rambling white house at 411 Commercial Street has been a studio and home to many artists and writers in Provincetown. The storefront gallery space, opened in 2011 by Liz Carney is a true painter’s gallery. It has been said by many locals that it evokes a feeling of old Provincetown.
411 Commercial street has a lengthy past rife with artistry. This building, affectionately known as the "rambling white house of the East End" was bought by artist Madelyn Carney, mother of the gallery's Artistic Director Liz Carney, at the end of the 1970's. Before then, however, previous owners included Nassos Daphnis, a Greek-born abstract imagist. The space was also used as a gallery decades ago before its current manifestation: known as Gallerie Graphique and ran by the late Paula Horn-Kotis.
Segmented into different living and studio spaces, the house features a windowed space in the front that has seen many creative souls come and go. Often functioning as both a studio and a home, this space was occupied by artist Richard DeQuattro for over twenty years during the 80's and 90's. Other creative minds who have passed through include artists John Dowd, Lynn Stanley, Jennifer Liese, while writers such as Paul Lisicky, Pamela Mandell and Candace Reefe have called this vibrant building home as well.
