ow 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.
2023 is also a special year filled with celebration for Gloucester’s 400th Anniversary alongside the CAA 40th. Register with CAA to find out about special workshops in collaboration with the Cape Ann Museum and a full month exhibit in the Fall with the Rocky Neck Art Colony from Sept 28-Oct 29th.
