To celebrate its centennial year, the Sargent House Museum will host a public gallery exhibit of works by artists who participated in the original 1919 show celebrating the incorporation of the museum.
As in 1919, the 2019 art exhibit will also include works by Theresa Bernstein, Hobart Nichols and Agnes Richmond. In all, there will be more than 20 works on display, many on loan from the Rockport Art Association & Museum, the Major Contributor of the exhibit. Running concurrently with this show, the Cape Ann Museum will feature a group of these 1919 artists now in their permanent collection, including Charles Hopkinson and John Prendergast.
Admission to the gallery exhibit is free for members, $5 for non-members. Any donations welcome.
