Illustrated talk looks at city in '50s

A well-known local writer will give an illustrated talk, “Coming of Age in the East Gloucester Art World of the 1950s” this Saturday.

Writer and Gloucester native Peter Anastas will deliver the talk at the Cape Ann Museum on July 13 at 3 p.m. The talk will focus on the artists and writers Anastas knew in and around Rocky Neck. He will describe his journey toward an understanding of the relationship between visual and literary art and the places in which it is created.

He will detail his experience as a young man who reported on the Cape Ann arts community for the Gloucester Daily Times’ Cape Ann Summer Sun.

This program is offered in conjunction with the special exhibition “Four Winds: the Arts and Letters of Rocky Neck during the 1950s.”

This program is free for members or with museum admission.
