Peter Herbert studied at the Brooklyn Museum, the Art Students League of New York, with Brooklyn realist Andrew Reiss, master painter David Levine, and under the mentorship of Gloucester painters Erma Wheeler and Gordon Goetemann. His work has been exhibited at The Crosby Gallery, New York, NY, The Century Association of New York City, the Wenniger Gallery, the North Shore Arts Association, The Sawyer Free Library and in solo and group exhibitions at The Annisquam Exchange Art Gallery and the Annisquam Village Art Show.

Pia Juhl was born in Denmark and after meeting her American husband there, moved to Boston.  Early on, Edward Hopper was a great influence.  Today, her painting is more intuitive and influenced by Milton Avery, Wolf Kahn and Catalan artist Jaume Muxart. Her work has been exhibited widely on Cape Ann at Flatrocks Gallery, Cove Gallery, Annisquam Exchange Art Gallery and Art in the Barn.  She has also shown at Faneuil Hall in Boston and in Harvard MA.
