“During New England’s Whaling boom in the 19th Century, Falmouth was a bustling hub of whaling activity, with over half of its male residents involved in the trade in some way. In what has become an annual collaboration combining art and history, students from Falmouth High School’s advanced ceramics classes will be exhibiting pieces created to honor and illustrate the colorful characters and rich stories of Falmouth’s whaling past.” – Falmouth Historical Society

“With the completion of Camp Edwards in 1941, Cape Cod’s small, quiet towns and villages were thrust head first into the war effort.  While the war affected each and every corner of America, the Cape was particularly transformed and would never again return to its sleepy pre-war existence. Falmouth’s streets populated with soldiers, its beaches dotted by amphibious craft, and its post office filled with mail from the local boys who served.  Through a patchwork of posters, clothing, ephemera, artifacts, and oral histories from local Falmouth residents, this exhibition brings to life the town as it was in the early 1940s, in the midst of some of the most transformative years  of the 20th century.” – Falmouth Historical Society

Jun 29 – Aug 17 all-day

Stolen Likenesses: Doug Rugh’s Oil Sketches from a Falmouth Coffee Shop

“Local Falmouth artist Doug Rugh (whose studio is located right down the street), is a brilliant portrait painter. This series of vignettes, some jotted off quickly, some more polished and finished, were all done as “covert sketches” while sitting in local coffee shops like Coffee Obsession. The results are a contemporary portrait of the town’s residents.” – Falmouth Historical Society

Reception: Friday, July 5, 5:30-7pm
