Insights On Site at the White-Ellery House

Picasso’s Women – A one-day installation by Gabrielle Barzaghi

The Cape Ann Museum is presenting an installation of sketches by Gabrielle Barzaghi entitled The Picasso Women Visit the White-Ellery House, on Saturday, September 5 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. This program will take place at the Cape Ann Museum’s historic White-Ellery House(1710) and is free and open to the public as part of Escapes North 17th Century Saturdays. The House is located at 245 Washington Street in Gloucester at the Route 128 Grant Circle Rotary; parking is available off Poplar Street in the field behind the house. 

Gabrielle Barzaghi graduated from the Boston Museum School in 1978. She moved to Gloucester in the mid-1990s and has taught drawing as a Senior Lecturer at the New England School of Art and Design at Suffolk University in Boston for many years. She is a recipient of a Massachusetts Cultural Council grant for drawing and has participated in many invitational and group shows throughout the region. Her work has been shown at the Boston MFA, the Currier Museum, the Fuller Museum and the Cape Ann Museum.

Artist’s Statement: Many of my works spring from my imagination, while others are the result of close observation and drawing from life. Often my drawings are a mixture of both, with close observation in the past serving my visual memory in the present. The themes are of myth and transcendence. 

The White-Ellery House has served as the backdrop for a series of one-day contemporary art installations (Insights On Site) for seven years running. It was built in 1710 and is one of just a handful of First Period houses in Eastern Massachusetts that survives to this day. Unlike other structures of this period, the largely unfurnished house has had very few interior alterations over the years. Stepping inside today, visitors enter much the same house they would have 300 years ago. The historic home is open on the first Saturday of the month from May through October as part of Escapes North 17th Century Saturdays.

Pastel Workshop with Gabrielle Barzaghi at Rocky Neck Cultural Center

pastel workshop

July 19, 20 and 21, 10 am – 3 pm

This is an intensive three-day workshop that explores traditional and contemporary approaches to drawing with chalk pastels. There will be an ongoing conversation about color (observed and expressive), formal and technical drawing concerns, and meaning and metaphor as it relates to our work. There will be demos, critiques, and lots of one-on-one attention. Participants should have basic drawing skills. If you love to draw and would like to learn how to use pastels, or would like to brush up on your pastel technique and try new things, this would be a great workshop to take. Painters will find this medium a welcome addition to their studio practice.

Artist and Educator Gabrielle Barzaghi is a Senior Lecturer at New England School of Art and Design at Suffolk University and has taught college level drawing since 1980. You may see her work at www.gabriellebarzaghi.com
