Bernstein and Meyerowitz met two years prior in New York when they were involved with the People’s Art Guild, which was an organization that sought to bring art to New York’s East Side settlement houses. Later, they were involved with the Gallery-on-the-Moors, the North Shore Arts Association, the Gloucester Society of Artists, and the Cape Ann Society of Modern Artists.
