The exhibition will explore the relationship between the art colonies of Monhegan, Maine and Cape Ann, Massachusetts.

Co-organized with the Cape Ann Museum, the show will pair works from both Monhegan and Cape Ann by these and other artists. Cape Ann and Monhegan Island Vistas: Contrasted New England Art Colonies will on view at the Monhegan Museum of Art & History July 1 through September 30, 2021.
