Cape Ann Artisans 2013 Fall Studio TourÂ October 12,13 &14, 2013
Cape Ann is home to a thriving arts community, one of the oldest in the country.Â For thirty years Cape Ann Artisans has been inviting the public to visit their studios during their Open studio weekends. This year's Fall tour will be held October 12-14 from 10 am to 5 pm each day. The self-guided tour along the scenic coastline of Gloucester and Rockport, MA presents a unique opportunity to meet 26 professional artists and see their work in the setting in which it was created. The work represented includes: pottery, painting, sculpture, photography, mosaics, jewelry, hand-made glass beads, and weaving, and block printing. Several of the artists will be demonstrating their working process during the tours.
The members of Cape Ann Artisans, while diverse in our art and expression, share a common sense of place on Cape Ann. Whether we were born and raised in the area, left and returned from other places, or found Cape Ann later in life, we draw our aesthetics and our inspiration directly from the color, light, and vistas of our environment.
Brochures with route maps will be available at the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce, the Rockport Information Booth on Rte 127 and at each of the artisans. A bright magenta Studio Tour banner will mark each location.
