Cape Cod artist Robert Edward Kennedy has teamed up with Cape Abilities to support adults with disabilities on Cape Cod.  Earlier this month, Kennedy opened a new art gallery at the Cape Abilities Consignment & Thrift Shop in Barnstable Village.

Sales of Kennedy's paintings, prints and hand-signed note cards at the gallery will benefit Cape Abilities. “I couldn’t speak highly enough of Cape Abilities,” said Kennedy, whose son, J.P., is part of the organization.

Kennedy owns galleries in Hyannis, Chatham and Provincetown.  The gallery at the Cape Abilities Consignment & Thrift Shop will also feature works by other local artists.

The new gallery at the Cape Abilities Consignment & Thrift Shop is at 3239 Route 6A in Barnstable Village. The shop is open Thursday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., 508-362-3417.
