Wellfleet Preservation Hall invites all OysterFest visitors to their first Oyster Plate Art Auction that will take place in the upper hall of Wellfleet Preservation Hall (WPH). 

Visitors can leave their silent bids on up to 100 oyster plates created by artists, creative community members and oyster lovers from 11am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Some of the artists included are Ed Christie, Ellen LeBow, Bob Rindler and Joe Fiorello.

Throughout the weekend, members of the Board of Directors of WPH will give tours of the Hall to show how it is being renovated and what is envisioned when it is completed.

Wellfleet Preservation Hall, the former church in the center of downtown Wellfleet, is being transformed into a unique community cultural center.  The exterior of the Hall has been completed, but the work has stopped until $600,000 can be raised to finish the interior.   Proceeds from the auction will go toward completing the work so that the doors can be opened to this gathering place for social and cultural programs that reflect the interests of the Outer Cape community.
