January 4

Please Leave Your Tiara at Home with CAM docent Jill Carter
In 2013 photographer Jim Hooper set up a make/shift studio on the Gloucester wharves. He then invited all families involved in the various industries on the waterfront to drop by and have their pictures taken. He captured these images as people were wrapping up their days work. What evolved is a portrait gallery that tells a story of Gloucester’s heroic fishing families—some with a span over 4 generations.  

Can Art Assimilate a Young Immigrant? with CAM docent Bruce Shaw
Immigrants poured into America during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Saturday Evening Club, a reading club in Boston (and here in the summers on Cape Ann), and the Paul Revere Pottery, in existence until 1942, provided the possibility for these girls to decorate ceramic pieces, helping them gain skills while also defining them as important and imaginative.

Return of the Natives with CAM docent Bruce Jones
The Cape Ann Museum displays a limited number of artifacts about the Native Americans that populated the area from about 11,000 years ago to the 20th century. Let’s take a closer look at those artifacts and what happened to all those natives.
