“We were delighted when, over and over again, a studio that we dropped by simply because it was on the route we were taking turned out to be a little jewel. We were so impressed by the quality of the block printing, ceramic work and painting. It was also a special privilege to be welcomed so warmly into the artists' studios,” a Spring 2014 visitor
With the Fall upon us, the Cape Ann Artisans invite neighbors and visitors to harvest their creative spirit! As our landscape changes, so do the colors that inspire the artwork itself – ocher marshes, winter squash, concord grapes, crisp apples, and new angles of sunlight are teasing everyone’s palate. For the second time this year, 23 studios around Gloucester and Rockport will be open to the public for a self-guided tour during the three days covering the Columbus Day weekend October 11-13. I am so looking forward to welcoming friends old and new to the studio. For returning visitors, there are new pieces in the collection to explore – my personal new favorites, so smaller earrings, Sea marbles, and sweater guards. In the meantime, stop into the Pop Gallery on the west end of Main Street where I now have a nice sampling of work for sale!
