Late Summer Exhibit

Our Late Summer Exhibit is on the walls! This show will run from August 7 through September 19th.

This exhibit features 2 solo shows by Eleanor Fisher and John Wathne, a group show from the Galleries at Lynn Arts (GALA), and Elements which is a juried MAA Artist Member exhibit. In the Hendrick gallery, we have the Fort Sewall Tree Exhibit. This exhibit is made up of wood taken from the iconic tree that was lost in a storm in 2019. The following artists were asked to create something out of this wood. They are John vanRemoortel, Harold Hansen, Davita Nowland, Jean Yeaple, Chuck Nyren, and Mayank Trivedi. These are beautiful pieces of art that you don’t want to miss.

Please come in and visit with us and enjoy the exhibit, we have many beautiful pieces on the walls.

The Fort Sewall Oversight Committee and Marblehead Arts Association Enter into an Artistic Collaboration

Two of Marblehead’s nonprofit organizations have come together to honor one of the town’s beloved landmarks, now just a nostalgic memory. In July of 2019, it took an unusual microburst, battering, and unrelenting winds to bring down Fort Sewall’s Giving Tree, which graced the fort’s silhouette for well over 100 years.
Thanks to the foresight of the Fort Sewall Oversight Committee chaired by Larry Sands, the wood from that tree and others at Fort Sewall was salvaged and milled into planks, blocks, and rounds.
Marblehead resident Jo Ann Silva, of the Oversight Committee, reached out to the Co-President of the Marblehead Arts Association, Missy Fisher, and between them and their respective organizations, they created a way to celebrate this Marblehead icon.
From now until September 19, all artwork from this collaboration is being exhibited at the Marblehead Arts Association. Many items can be purchased through the MAA during the exhibit, and others will be part of an auction held at the Boston Yacht Club on September 23rd.
The event will start at 6:30 P.M. and includes a concert by Mason Daring and Jeanie Stahl followed by the live auction with Gene Arnould, cash bar, and assorted appetizers.
Tickets for this event are now on sale at the Marblehead Arts Association or online by clicking here.
