Exhibitions on view at Brick Store Museum

The Brick Store Museum is home to six galleries on Main Street in Kennebunk. Its revolving exhibitions employ the museum’s 70,000-plus artifacts to illustrate the history, art and culture of the Kennebunks and southern Maine. Visitors of all ages are welcomed at the museum, to explore the exhibitions now on view:

“To Your Health: Examining the History of Modern Medicine,” presented by York Hospital and co-sponsored by Southern Maine Health Care, where visitors will discover the fascinating history of how our bodies have experienced disease and treatment over 250 years, and how healthcare has changed over time.

“80 Years of Fashion,” supported by Kathy Ostrander-Roberts, shows off some of the most unique pieces in the museum’s large textile and costume collection in celebration of the museum’s 80th anniversary this year.

“Design & Function: Furniture, Portraits and Art, 1685-1840” displays the museum’s permanent collections of art and decorative arts from the Kennebunks. On display in this exhibition is the Capen-Perkins Chest, a chest of drawers built in 1685. It is one of only two to survive in New England.

“Seek the Light: The Photography of Rowland Williams” features a local photographer’s recent work in the Kennebunks.

These and other exhibitions will be open through September. For more information, visit www.brickstoremuseum.org/exhibitions.
