Last call to view exhibitions at Cape Ann Historical Museum
The Cape Ann Historical Museum’s two temporary exhibitions, Chapters on a Quarry Wall, photography of Leslie D. Bartlett, and Jeff Weaver: Gloucester Paintings and Drawings will be on display through January 31, 2008.
Chapters on a Quarry Wall is the culmination of eight years of climbing out on quarry ledges at sunrise and sunset to capture the unique light and geography of the region’s granite quarries. The exhibit features approximately 40 vertical images displayed as unmounted scrolls. Bartlett has spent the last decade exploring Cape Ann’s unique blend of artistic and historic opportunities for photographic interpretation.
Jeff Weaver: Gloucester Paintings and Drawings reflects Weaver’s long connection to the region, and his fascination with the architectural diversity, decaying wharves, and working waterfront that have provided him with an intriguing array of subject matter for almost 40 years. Weaver chooses subjects which reveal Gloucester’s true personality, discovering visual interest in scenes that would ordinarily go unnoticed.
