This year represents the 40th year for the Cape Ann Artisan Tour as the oldest “open studios” in the country. Celebrate the occasion at the upcoming CAMTalk: History Series: Cape Ann Artisan’s 40th Anniversary on Saturday, October 21 at 2:00 pm.
The @capeannartisans are part of a vibrant arts community, located along the scenic North Shore of Massachusetts. The Tour is a self-guided exploration of artists’ studios in Gloucester and Rockport. Both areas are also home to three important Massachusetts designated Cultural Districts – downtown Gloucester, downtown Rockport, and Rocky Neck.
The Museum was proud to host an exhibit of the Artisans for their 30th anniversary in 2013 and to have collaborated on a year of hands-on studio offerings for their 40th anniversary this year. In this talk, hear from select members of the Artisans about their ongoing work sharing and celebrating fine art and craft on Cape Ann. Viewers can see the Cape Ann Artisans' 2023 40th Anniversary at the Cultural Center at Rocky Neck Art Colony in October 2023.
