About Douglas Ritter

local artist educator- active in local arts organizations - former fellow at the fine arts work center in provincetown, and serve on the board of the south wellfleet neighborhood association - which is restoring a turn of the century greek revival schoolhouse in the neighborhood. i teach drawing, design, and computer graphics at cape cod community college, and am certified by betty edwards in the renowned "drawing on the right side of the brain" curriculum. outdoors enthusiast, advid swimmer and biker.

Why Douglas Ritter chose Cape Cod

i designed and built this property in 2002 as first and primary residence and studio - the outer cape is a fantastic and welcoming community - and shares strong connections to american art history - it's perhaps unparalleled in terms of the depth of cultural and historic offerings. well fleet's tradition in modernist architecture guided the design, as well as sustainability and efficiency.

guests love this house - there is a large studio space with negotiated availability - can provide art materials and instruction in drawing and painting. i am a visual artist and teach at cape cod community college. wellfleet has a unique history of modernist architecture, and the home has been architecturally planned with principles of usonian design - i.e. frank lloyd wright by allan dodge. Furnishings are period modernist. no kitsch.
