Next Talk: December 10 at Cedar Tree Gallery


The Woman Dressed in White

Saturday, December 10, Manchester resident Leslie Bartlett will give a talk accompanying an exhibit of his recent work, titled “PERSEPHONE: the unspeakable girl,” large-format photographs of Rockport's Flat Ledge Quarry, once the largest site of the Rockport Granite Company.

For nearly 20 years Bartlett has been visiting Flat Ledge, drawing from it artistic expression and renewal. This exhibit reveals imagery from one wall of the quarry, which borders directly on Granite Street.

The talk, “The Woman Dressed in White—feminine images held in rock,” presents the early women artists and intellectuals who first happened upon the world of quarrying—their reactions and art. Bartlett will relate the current exhibition to the feminine spirit which has held the quarry and the bedrock of Cape Ann in “austere tenderness.”
At The Cedar Tree Gallery in Essex (Walker Creek Furniture, 57 Eastern Avenue),
at 6:30 p.m. The exhibit will continue through February 12, 2017.
