“We’re all about Cape Ann,” the museum’s Executive Director, Ronda Faloon, told WBZ NewsRadio 1030.

It features sketches from Stuart Davis and many works from Fitz Henry Lane, a noted maritime artist who grew up in Gloucester, as well as a 13-foot Fresnel lighthouse lens.  The museum also has painted oars, statues and other artifacts on display.

“It’s this mixture of all these different kinds of art and artifacts,” said Faloon.
