Here is a digital who’s who catalogue with portraits of the participating artists and scenes from the inaugural Cape Ann Art Show at the Beauport Hotel Gloucester, MA. The art fair and the hotel were jumping on this gorgeous evening. Original works of art (not reproductions) were priced under $100 and up from there. The artists and the hotel were so well prepared and joyous, I was compelled to record their effort. Apologies if I missed anyone. I jotted down contact information and linked to artists when possible.

They’re in alphabetical order. Please let me know if you or your contact information was missed. I tried to capture the complete installation. Congratulations to the artists and Beauport Hotel! It was a great fair.
The Rockport Garden Club invites you to attend its 2017 garden tour: Rockport in Bloom. This self-guided tour consists of 11 private gardens clustered in the three Rockport neighborhoods.

Cape Ann artist Kathleen Miller brings along her paint box for outdoor painting. The box sits either on the ground or on her lap, with her palette board attached to an easel setup as she paints. The paint box is an essential piece of equipment, containing everything she needs, except the canvas. In it, Kathleen packs her vibrant Gamblin oil paints, flat and filbert (rounded) brushes, and two pallete knives. “Almost all of the paintings I do in the summer are plein air (done outside),” Kathleen says. “I love painting all types of subject matter, although I’m especially drawn to the water. Typically, I paint in the late afternoon, which has really nice lighting effects.” When asked to share a funny experience that happened to her while painting on location, she told about a time that she was set up at Stage Fort Park and a rat ran over her foot. In spite of that, she made a beautiful painting of Half Moon Beach. “You never know what will happen when you paint outside!” she laughed. “You might end up with a beautiful painting with bugs stuck in it… That’s just part of the experience!” Her style, in her own words: “My feelings, expressed in color and design, are more important in my paintings than subject matter.” She likes to make small paintings, although she does larger works as well. Kathleen Miller currently has 57 original oil paintings displayed at Bodin Historic Photo & Fine Art in downtown Gloucester.You can look at Kathleen’s work on:
