Rocky neck artist colony

DEFINITION

On the North Shore ocean side along a picturesque rocky coast in an inlet of Gloucester, Massachusetts harbor, it was founded more than 200 years ago and claims to be America's oldest working art colony. In the 'colony' are about 30 galleries that sell paintings, photographs, crafts, and even home-made candles. The artists work in back rooms and are usually available and eager to talk with guests about their creations and work. Many of the restaurants offer water-front tables, such as The Studio, where you can sit out on a patio and look at the ships and boating activity. In addition to artists, the Colony organization has business and other community members. The goal is to promote free expression of the arts and celebrate the culture of Rocky Neck through residencies, workshops and exhibitions. Artist participants have included Milton Avery, Edward Hopper, John Sloan, and Childe Hassam. Source: http://www.rockyneckartcolony.org/
