Manchester Historical Museum Re-opening

Manchester Historical Museum is Re-opening
Manchester Historical Museum at 10 Union Street is thrilled to reopen on Tuesday, July 14, and would like to invite you to come view the current art exhibit and sale – “Cape Ann through Artists’ Eyes.” Come enjoy paintings and photography from 18 local artists. This free exhibit will run through September during our regular hours Tuesday – Fridays (10 – 3). As artwork sells, new items will be hung, so come a couple of times during this run. For more info contact the Manchester Historical Museum.
In order to comply with CDC and state guidelines, guests and staff must wear face coverings while inside, practice social distancing, sanitize hands upon entrance and register for Covid tracing. We will be limiting the number of people in the exhibit hall which may mean a short wait in our lovely courtyard before entering. The historic Trask House will remain closed for the time being. Limited archive research will resume but will be by appointment only.

ARTS ABOUND wishes you a Happy Fourth of July

Arts Abound would like to wish you all a happy holiday! We are well aware that the world continues to be a crazy place but we are certainly grateful for the freedoms we do have!

This gorgeous photo is taken by our talented featured artist Melissa Cox.

Gloucester-made Ryan & Wood hand sanitizer, paired with a hand-sewn mask or two, makes a wonderful gift. Ryan & Wood is a local distillery that temporarily converted their production to hand sanitizer to help folks stay safe during the pandemic. $40 as shown here with mask.

Celebrating Creativity with local artists

Our gallery features a variety of beautiful and unique artwork from local artists as well as carefully handcrafted gifts, such as pottery, hand-painted scarves, hand-carved wooden cutting boards with bread knives, greeting cards, jewelry, and local photography.
