Bob Henry and Selina Trieff came to the Cape to paint in the 1950s. For six decades, they thrived in love and art. Bob’s work has always evoked a world that’s constantly shifting. Now, he’s navigating the shift of a lifetime

Bob Henry posts an image a day of his work on Facebook and on Instagram, @bobhenryart.  His studio, at 42 Commercial Street in Wellfleet, is open from 6 to 8 p.m. every Saturday in July and August. Just look for the wooden chicken out front. He’s been working on large canvases for the first time in years. Drop by and say hi.
