Last Insights On Site art show for the season at White Ellery House: Leslie Lyman and Karen Battles installation October 1

Meredith Anderson from the Cape Ann Museum reminds us that “the one day exhibits at the White-Ellery House are not only a place to see some interesting local  contemporary art in a historical context…They are also a great chance open house for people who’ve never been to experience this remarkable 17th century home.”

Cape Ann Museum printed matter about the Leslie Lyman and Karen Battles Insights On Site one-day-only exhibit on October 1.


From the Cape Ann Museum

The White-Ellery House (1710), owned and operated by the Cape Ann Museum, has served as the back­drop for a series of one-day contemporary art installations since 2010. The House is located at 245 Wash­ington Street in Gloucester and is free and open to the public on select Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each month from May through October as part of Escapes North 17th Century Saturdays. Visitors are invited to explore the art installation and the historic house and property. Karen Battles and Leslie Lyman will be available to discuss their work and Museum staff and volunteers will be on hand to answer any questions about the House. This program is free and open to the public.

Support for this program is provided by The Umberto Romano and Clorinda Romano Foundation which celebrates Umberto Romano’s (1906–1982) legacy on Cape Ann through arts education and appreciation and by fostering the work of emerging and/or working artists.

Karen and Leslie are both mixed media artists living in Newburyport and Beverly Farms respectively.

This will be the final installation in the 2016 Insights On Site series. To see work by other artists in the series or to find out more about this program visit
