Through its monthly meetings with art presentations, demos, and talks The Experimental Group offers connection, exploration, and sharing of ideas and methods with the intent to reach creative freedom and increases awareness in our communities that all art forms matter.

The Cove Gallery, run by the Rocky Neck Art Colony, is the former home and gallery space of beloved Rocky Neck artists Gordon and Judith Goetemann. Cove continues the tradition set by the Goetemanns of showing the best in local art. The space is made available to the organization through the generosity of Gordon and Judith’s son Mark Goetemann.

Gordon Massman Studio, 31 Pooles Lane, Rockport, MA 01966

Abstract artist Gordon Massman, in conjunction with Cape Ann Cosmos Media, will host an OPEN STUDIO event in the artist’s 2500 square foot industrial studio warehouse, on June 11, 4:00-7:00pm, at 31 Pooles Lane, Rockport MA. FREE and open to the public. 

Mr. Massman paints large-scale emotional depth charges, taking the viewer on magnificent journeys into the soul. The artist’s statement:

“I paint the unstructured indeterminate character of feeling, irrespective of logic and reason. I reach deep inside the complex nature of urges, desires, wishes, and motivations of the blazing human psyche. In the end, for me, there is only the tube of paint, the canvas, and the sum total of my life. I am blessedly untrained and, therefore, have no guardrails or painterly traditions to restrict my creativity.”

“Judith” oil on canvas – 64″ x 130″

The Matthew Swift Gallery in Gloucester represents Gordon Massman’s work. In addition, the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln, MA, represents eight of his “museum quality” paintings through its corporate lending program.

Before Mr. Massman embraced painting full time, The New York Quarterly Press published seven volumes of Gordon’s poetry. In 2013, his four-hundred-page volume of collected poems was nominated for The Pulitzer Prize. 

Mr. Massman holds an MFA in creative writing from The University of Alaska. He received his undergraduate degree from The University of Texas-Austin in 1972. 

The June 11 Open Studio event will be Gordon Massman’s first unveiling of his work to the public. Attendees should be astounded, moved, and inspired by this vibrant, large-scale production of a uniquely creative outburst of expression. Gordon continues the legendary Rockport art tradition but moves into a new dimension and an unparalleled scale of painting. 

Food, libations, and music will enhance a wonderful experience for all.

Exploring a range of subject matter, Lully Schwartz creates oil paintings that capture the light of summer with a spectacular range of colors.  Rich strokes of paint combine abstract qualities with realism to form Lully’s signature style of art.  Beach bathers, bold flowers and brilliant ocean surfaces seem to convey the artist’s love for sun-soaked moments found in Rockport and beyond.   “I paint the color of light with all its complexities, moments of joy, pain and beauty” explains Lully of her recent paintings.  This exhibition offers the audience visual art that reimagines Cape Ann from a contemporary perspective.      

LULLY SCHWARTZ (b. in Beverly, MA) graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 1983 and today paints and teaches from her studio known as the North Shore Atelier.

Sea Scout Ship 5 – Refillable Water Station Grand Opening – Youth Environmental Summit

Saturday May 21, 2022  11AM – 1PM

Gloucester Harbormaster Building
19 Harbor Loop # 2, Gloucester, MA 01930    

Download Map

With the help of a grant from the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation and NOAA, Sea Scout Ship 5 has installed a public refillable water station at the Gloucester Harbormaster Building on Harbor loop.  The Grand Opening is Saturday May 21 from 11-1.  In addition to the Grand Opening, there will be local Environmental Organizations on hand to showcase their projects and offer opportunities for our community and youth to get involved.

Ship 5 has been working with the Gloucester Harbormaster since 2017 collecting and documenting trash at public boat landings on Cape Ann. To date Ship 5 crew members have logged over 33,500 items on the Marine Debris Tracker. Plastics are the worst offender. This refillable water station is Ship 5’s attempt at making a change. The trash is not going away, but maybe, with the refillable water station, people will change their habits and stop buying disposable water bottles. Everyone can use the refillable water station and feel they are part of the solution in the attempt to reduce plastics in the ocean.

Per manufacturers recommendations the Refillable Water Station will only be operational in the warmer months, Mid-May through Mid-October.  Ship 5 will continue to maintain the refillable water station throughout the summer. The unit is filtered and has a water meter. Sea Scout Ship 5 will monitor the water usage and will be able to determine the number of potential water bottles that were kept from the ocean.

The Youth Environmental Summit portion of the event is to introduce the community and other youth to local environmental organizations that are available for people to participate in.  There are environmental organizations that want youth involvement but are having trouble finding interested youth.  And there are youth looking for environmental organizations. Ship 5 Youth Environmental Summit is a place to meet.

Sea Scout Ship 5 is chartered by Elks Lodge 892 and is a branch of the Boys Scouts of America BSA

Windhover Ushers in a New Era!

Our Brand New Permanent Tent Covering takes Center Stage in our back garden!   (May 15, 2022)

WINDHOVER Center for the Performing Arts is ushering in a new era!

Windhover is open!  We hosted our first gathering of performance artists this past weekend, and there are many more gatherings and retreats to come. Our Windhover season really began with the showing of the premiere of Quarry Dance X: The Film, on April 24, 2022.  Many thanks to the more than 300 of you who tuned in. It was great to know that so many in our audience share our enthusiasm for this unique dance form which combines the art of dance in the natural world.   

In addition to showing the film, we hosted conversation among the creative team of artists who made the film, including the choreographer, several of the dancers, the videographer, the producer and the composer of the music.  It was a thrill to listen to them share their perspectives on their collaborative process.  There was also a time for a Q & A with the viewing audience.  

The making of this film highlights one of the core principles here at Windhover — collaboration.  We offer the opportunity for artists to spend time together, to work together, and to create together. And with your help, we will continue to do so.

For those who missed the premiere of the film on Zoom, we’ve posted a link on the Windhover website for all to enjoy. Please share it with others. You can see the premiere of the film here and Windhover’s YouTube Channel

New Energy Flows into Cape Ann Artisan Tour

Spring Open Studios Tour Just One Month Away!

It’s right around the corner.  Literally, you can walk or drive down the street or up the highway and enjoy some of the most engaging artists in the region.  It’s the 39th year of the Cape Ann Artisans Open Studio Tour and 16 artists spread across 15 studios are looking forward to welcoming art lovers from near and far.

This year’s tour welcomes three new Artisans all based in Gloucester.  John Abisamra, Photographer, on Carrigan Court; Rebecca Anne Nagle, Painter and Mixed Media artist who is located in the Cripple Cove Studios; and Melody Phaneuf, Painter located on Centennial Avenue.  The new artists have brought exciting energy to the tour and also complement the genres of art that can be experienced.  Enjoy the updated CAA video to get a window into what to expect as you traverse Cape Ann.

Many of the artists have expressed their inspiration and current direction in the “From the Studio” blog on the Cape Ann Artisans website.  Here are a few highlights from the blogs:

  • Deb Schradieck was recently interviewed for Cape Ann ARTWaves and her story is fun and engaging.  She is a prolific painter who has done sketches and paintings her entire life and recently added street scenes to her portfolio.  Deb and Jon Abisamra are part of a trio that launched the new Gallery One in Rockport.
  • Jon Abisamra shares “My real passion is to capture the beauty of Cape Ann and its magical light through my camera. I try to capture the uniqueness each season brings. Photography for me is all about capturing a moment in time which may never be repeated. My real studio is the great outdoors.”
  • Melody Phaneuf shares: “I appreciate looking at things, particularly old, tarnished, abandoned things. Objects are combined, arranged, rearranged, discarded. All the parts are judged for their role in the design and expression of idea. “
  • Pam Stratton continues to expand her repertoire with encaustic wax and glass. She recently completed a work reminiscent her of her time in Ravenna Italy. She carved into a field of blue wax to inlay multicolored stars in her piece called Ravenna Dreams. Pam has also started a new line of jewelry incorporating glass threads that she pulls using the shards from her mosaic works.
  • Sinikka Nogelo recently made a piece called “Hidden Treasures,” for The Experimental Group of Rockport Art Association & Museum’s.  The piece honoring the late Jacki Harrington.   combines two disciplines, sculpture and painting.  Nogelo has rolled two paintings that evoke the beauty of the outdoors into a richly textured cylinder, inside of which is a surprise fashioned from recycled paintings – a flower in full bloom.  Look out for more surprises from Sinikka.

Artisans are always expanding their collections and finding new ways to get work into the hands of patrons.  Jacqueline Ganim-DeFalco’s blog, co-authored with Beth Williams, focuses on the importance of relationships with galleries.   Sallie Strand is expanding her reach by leading a collaboration with the Emerson Inn. 

The tour is “self-guided” with 15 individual stops to visit with 16 artisans.  The CAA encourages visitors to do some advance planning to maximize their visit by using the Brochure with the map which is now available at all the tourism outlets and online.    You will find brochures at the Cape Ann Chamber, North of Boston CVB on 95 South, Stage Ft. Park Visitors Center, local banks, and CAA partner locations.  The full group of studios is listed below by last name:
