Most of our guests here at Gabriel’s quickly grow familiar with co-owner Elizabeth Gabriel Brooke as a warm and kind presence around the inn. But there’s another side to Elizabeth you may know nothing about: she’s a renowned Provincetown photographer, and we are excited to announce her new gallery opening at our Provincetown Bed and Breakfast on the first floor of our main building.
Elizabeth’s sensibilities were first nurtured during her childhood on the eastern shore of Long Island, NY, where her love of nature began to develop into an aesthetic eye for what others often miss. For Elizabeth, her art is about sharing the essential meaning of what powerfully draws her in while out shooting: feeling the interconnection of all life at its essence.

Gabriel’s guests will now have two ways to view and be inspired to purchase framed or unframed matted prints of Provincetown’s iconic landmarks, magnificent natural land, and seascapes. In the office, find her images from her trips to Antarctica, New Zealand, Iceland, Costa Rica, Namibia, Galapagos, Kenya, Egypt, and Uganda. Her wildlife pictures are not to be missed.
These exhibits will feature new work as they’re completed, curated by Elizabeth Anne. In fact, she is out in the Yukon now. Elizabeth’s full bio and other interesting information are available on her website, where her work is available for viewing and sale.
Sign up for her new newsletter here for occasional updates.

Brooke and National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship recipient, novelist Lynne Hugo on September 23rd from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm. They will be chatting with people casually and presenting a program titled “Two Artistic Approaches to Saving Wildlife.” Elizabeth G will share some thoughts on wildlife photography, and Lynne will present her 11th novel, The Language of Kin.
