Upcoming Installation by Elizabeth Alexander

August 3, 2012

Instructor Elizabeth Alexander‘s Still Life: A Fabricator’s Banquet exhibit will be installed at The Cape Ann Museum’s White-Ellery House at 245 Washington Street in Gloucester for one day only!

August 4th, 11am – 3pm

Alexander’s installation is part of The Museum’s 2012 One-Day Contemporary Art Series at the White-Ellery House as part of 17th Century Saturdays, an Escapes North program and is free and open to the public.Her work which was originally created for a Colonial house in Portsmouth: The Wentworth-Coolidge Mansion, will be installed in an equally unique location. The White-Ellery House was built in 1710 and is one of just a handful of First Period houses in Eastern Massachusetts that survives to this day. (First Period means c. 1620–1725.) It is a 2 ½ story “saltbox” structure with a massive central chimney that once serviced six fireplaces. Unlike other structures as old as this, the White-Ellery House has had very few interior alterations over the years. Stepping inside today, visitors enter much the same house they would have 300 years ago. The White-Ellery House is on the National Register of Historic Sites because of its unique construction and important interior features.
