Now in its 40th year, the Cape Ann Artisans Open Studios offers a unique opportunity to visit artists in their studios for several select weekends each year. If you have never done this before, you are in for a treat. You will meander along the coast of Gloucester and Rockport peeking into hidden drives and neighborhoods to find your way. You will be guided by an online or printed map and dozens of pink banners and signs throughout Cape Ann. In 2023 you can visit 17 different studios. Artists encompass many media including: pottery, painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media, mosaics, weaving, glass beads, sea glass wearable art, and fine jewelry.
The summer Mini-Tour is ONE DAY ONLY and a smaller group of artists and this date is meant to coincide with Mass Tax Free Weekend!
