TJ Walton Gallery

Sparse Lines and Concentrated Color

TJ Walton is an artist with an endless fascination for Provincetown and its harbor. Her linen on oil, wood or canvas paintings are of flowers, boats, whale tails and horses, metaphors for creating a picture that the viewer enters; an atmospheric world that is both light and dark. Walton is self-taught and the recipient of PAAM’s Young Artist’s National Competition in 1999.

TJ Walton is a forerunner in the growing group of contemporary self-taught artists living here year-round. A Provincetown resident since 1989, Walton has stayed the course by relying on a deep sense of self-reliance fostered at an early age. Works are done in series of flowers, boats, horses and whale tales as recurring motifs.

All-black is a statement in Walton’s art and fashion. As writer Margaret Bergman said, " T. J. looks anachronistic and fresh at once, a ‘young modern’ much like a 1950s ‘girl painter’ that made the scene in New York's downtown art world. Paintings on linen and wood are both atmospheric and dense. This quality in her pieces has influenced many emerging artists in Provincetown.

The gallery at 346 Commercial is a new chapter for Walton after the long illness of a parent. She is joined by Director Will Wallace and Gallery/Studio Assistant Billy Blando. Widely collected over the years, Walton welcomes you to share in her renewal. She is also on the design team of Crate and Barrel.
