Situated on a small peninsula in Smith Cove, the Rocky Neck Art Colony is known for its rustic charm and eclectic works of art in a laid-back authentic setting. At the beginning of the summer the galleries on Rocky Neck could not open due to the Pandemic, but many opened their doors in July, either in person or online. Come visit Rocky Neck in East Gloucester – a great place to stroll on a summer day, peruse the shops and galleries, and enjoy a memorable meal.
