Wish You Were Here: Postcards from the Past: Opening Reception

October 6 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The opening reception for Calliope Poetry’s Wish You Were Here: Postcards from the Past exhibition will be held on Friday, October 6, from 4 to 6 PM, at the Falmouth Historical Society’s Museums on the Green, 55 Palmer Ave. Falmouth. 

Calliope Poetry’s postcard exhibition will be on display until May 10, 2024.

The Falmouth Public Library’s trove of postcards includes depictions the town throughout the decades (since the early 1900s), with many historical images of each of Falmouth’s villages. The postcards capture the spirit of the past and bring the people who wrote them alive again, with all their unique personalities, quirks, and humor.

Each card has its own story, and this project enabled local literary and visual artists to use those stories to reflect on and sometimes reinterpret the postcards, images and messages as a way to enter Falmouth’s history—to capture the contrast between past and present, and to celebrate the unchanging character of the town. Calliope Poetry hopes this exhibit prompts a memory of your own.

Wish You Were Here: Postcards from the Past was made possible through a generous grant from the Falmouth Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural
Council, the Town of Falmouth and the Falmouth ArtMarket.
