Seven Cape Ann Artisan Studios to host first ever Summer Mini-Tours| Creatively expanding space to the outdoors to accommodate visitors


The Cape Ann Artisans sorely missed the opportunity to open up their studios in the Spring so they are introducing a new twist for the summer months.  Instead of a full weekend tour, a sub-set of the full group will open their studios for one Saturday in July and one in August.

The participating artists include David Archibald, Cynthia Curtis, and Erin O’Sullivan & Scott Place (Twin Lights Studios) representing the ceramic arts.   They are joined by painter Jillian Demeri, sea glass jeweler Jacqueline Ganim-DeFalco, glass artist Beth Williams, and Pamela Stratton Mosaics.   The group has self-selected based on their ability to use outdoor spaces and welcome visitors safely.

The Cape Ann Artisans have been discussing all possible ways to welcome our friends, family, neighbors, and visitors safely after a long winter of making new artwork.  We are thrilled to now be creative in the use of our combined indoor and outdoor spaces to make visitors feel comfortable and to enjoy the exquisite gardens and views of Cape Ann.  Cynthia Curtis will open up an entire end of her gallery to the outside thanks to a newly installed garage door.  Jacqueline Ganim-DeFalco will expand into her lower barn space and set up tables to sit outside and enjoy the garden. David Archibald’s luscious garden will be in full bloom.

Visitors can easily group the tour into geographic proximity by visiting the Gloucester artists and Rockport artists in sequence by neighborhood from East Gloucester, to downtown, to Riverdale, Lanesville, and Rockport (or reverse) according to the digital postcard which will be circulated online or can be downloaded from

Artists are all taking appointment by phone, email, and Square appointments for visitors that would like to reserve a specific time.  Appointments will be given first priority if the studio is at Covid-compliant capacity.  Look for our pink flags to way find to the open studios!

All the  Cape Ann Artisans welcome appointments throughout season and hope to hear directly from visitors.

All Artisans will be asking for visitors to be Covid-Compliant, wearing facial coverings, using hand-sanitizer, and practicing social distancing.
