strisik-ptg---webOctober 4 – November 16

The RAA is proud to present the fourth of its special summer exhibitions: Paul Strisik, NA: The Artist & His Collection from October 4th – November 16th. This beautiful show will not only feature the works of this National Academician, but also highlight the vast collection that he and his wife Nancy acquired over the years both here on Cape Ann and during their worldwide travels. The exhibition will feature gallery walks led by two of Strisik’s long time friends Ron Straka and David Curtis. These free gallery walks will take place on two consecutive Wednesdays, October 15th and October 22 respectively, at 10:30 AM.
