The Cape Ann Historical Museum is presently hosting three exhibits. The current exhibits, Theresa Bernstein, American Modernist and Jan Matulka, A Painter’s eye on Cape Ann have been extended and will now run through Sunday, September 17, 2006. Bernstein (1890-2002) contributed to a critical period in American art history and to the development of Cape Ann as an artist colony. Jan Matulka, A Painter’s eye on Cape Ann consists of paintings and drawings by modernist artist, Jan Matulka (1890-1972). A contemporary of Stuart Davis, Matulka’s work represents a vision of Cape Ann in the 1930s.
