Graphic designer, printmaker and painter Mensah Bey is known for artwork based upon his interacting with a new community. How, he wondered, had Gloucester’s Main Street fared during the pandemic’s shut-down? By focusing his residency on this question, Mensah created a video featuring Kelsick Specialty Market’s owner, Paige Drewery. He then painted a complementary narrative painting, which will be on display with his other Gloucester-based works at Arts On Main through August.
