Come celebrate the opening of Peabody Historical Society’s newest exhibit, “Greetings from Peabody: The Art of Greeting Cards and Postcards, 1900-1960,” at a reception from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Cassidy Art Museum, 33 Washington St., Peabody. This exhibit features a variety of antique cards from the society’s collection. Learn how styles evolved from the elaborate and sentimental cards of the late Victorian era, to the often humorous and “cartoonish” cards of the 1930s and 1940s. Visitors may also read the messages penned by Peabody residents to loved ones and friends. For more information, call Heather Leavell at 978-531-0805.
