Museum hatches free show | Local news


A free exhibition of works by Essex sculptor Brad Story and Ipswich photographer Dorothy Kerper Monnelly opens at Cape Ann Museum Green on Friday.

The special show at the Janet & William Ellery James Center on the green, 13 Poplar St., shows the works of the artists, inspired by the natural surroundings on the North Shore, in particular the Great Marsh, which extends from Cape Ann to the border with New Hampshire.

“Each artist‘s sculptures and photographs are particularly impressive as they reflect the real beauty of our local landscape,” said Oliver Barker, director of the Cape Ann Museum. “Both elevate the region’s natural beauty to an art form.”

Barker said this is the first of three exhibits and related programs that will safely engage the community during the ongoing pandemic and take advantage of the open space at CAM Green.

The show runs through July 30th and the CAM Green Campus is open Thursday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm and Sunday from 1pm to 4pm. Entry is free, but timed entry should be reserved at Information about the exhibition and the associated programs can be found at
