Description

Meet the Artists In Their Studios!

“Unlike a gallery that brings the works of an artists to the public, The Art of Cape Ann Tour will bring the public into our working environment. It is a unique opportunity for visitors to engage with artists and experience the culture of art on Cape Ann.” Explains Cape Ann Artist Melody Phaneuf.

Gloucester is home of our nations oldest running artist colony, Rocky Neck, and today more than 2000 artists call this area home. Starting in the early 1800's, artists have been painting, sculpting, and capturing the spirit of this charming and picturesque village.

This is a special tour for Art Week, and we will combine history, seaside sightseeing and demonstrations by local artists.

With multiple (4-5) stops, we will discover artists of the past along our narrated tour passing by homes painted by Edward Hopper, landscapes featured in art and poetry, and iconic scenery that has captivated visitors for centuries as we journey by bus to visit the working art studios, and beautiful galleries nestled around Cape Ann.

Light snacks will be served in some of the studios, everyone will receive a canvas backpack with snacks, a bottle of water and brochures to help you find more of our local artists when you are ready to return again.

Prior to the start of the event on our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/PluginCapeAnnTours), we will provide the names and a links to the artists and the studios which we will visit during each tour.
