with an emphasis on representational art


God Bless Art: The Portraits of Earle Merchant was an exhibit held April 9, 2016 - May 28, 2016 at the Cape Ann Museum. The museum information includes links to Keith Powers, "Love of Creating Art Shines Through" (Cape Ann Beacon 4/15/16) and Gail McCarthy, "God Bless Art" (Gloucester Daily Times 4/7/16). Merchant said in 1990: "I am, essentially, a self-taught artist. My earlier works leaned towards the primitive, but they became less of that style as I progressed. I like people, especially children. This probably accounts for achieving notable likenesses in finished portraits. I value highly my companionship over the years with so many talented fellow artists. Cape Ann is fortunate to have such high quality artists. God bless art and its Associations." Accessed August, 2016

Summer with the Averys (Milton, Sally, March) is a 2019 exhibit at the Bruce Museum which says: "Along with canonical paintings by Milton Avery, the show offers a unique opportunity to become acquainted with the remarkable art created by Avery's wife Sally and their daughter March."  Accessed 9/19
