Annual Appeal

Dear Friends and Library Supporters,
Our Annual Appeal letters will be sent out in a few weeks. We’ve had a change in accounting staff and do apologize for the delay. Those of you who have so generously supported us in the past and would like to receive your tax deduction this year rather than in 2014 may send us your donation early and receive credit, or you can use our paypal account.

December in the Matz Gallery: Kerry Mullen

Kerry Mullen is a multi-media artist living and working in Gloucester, Massachusetts. She is greatly influenced by her surroundings, particularly the rocky coast, glacial formations, granite quarries, ocean, and extraordinary light which play upon all of these from the season to season.


Kerry’s clay work appears to have been formed from the ground itself with beautiful earth tones and a refined sensibility.


Kerry’s work has been shown at various North Shore venues including her own Spotted Cat Gallery, Cove Gallery, Rocky Neck Art Association, Artspace, Joncien Gallery, and Local Colors. Her work is in private collections across the United States. Kerry’s unique contributions to the greater community have been through her sculpture installations shown at Maudslay State Park in Newburyport, Massachusetts and the Stone Bone Feather Festival in Amesbury, Massachusetts.
