Rock N Art Open on Bearskin Neck through Christmas

Rock N Art is a gallery I have with my neighbor, Anthony Ciaramitaro, at 12 Old Harbor Road on Bearskin Neck. We opened it August 1, 2018. Anthony does very cool stone sculptures out of local beach stones. He got the shop and offered me space there if we split the expenses. It's been a great opportunity for us. 

Starting the day after Thanksgiving I plan to be at the shop for the many themed events Rockport has during the holidays. It will be mostly Saturday and Sunday from 12-5 but I will publish a schedule here soon. 

Juried into the Rockport Art Association Nov. 2018

I am very happy to announce that I've been juried into the RAAM. There were 57 painters that applied and only 6 got in. This was my second try. I submitted five watercolors, all were boats with reflections. 

It's a real honor to get into Rockport. Now that we live there, this was something I really wanted. They get a lot of foot traffic and have several nice galleries plus a gift shop. I am looking forward to participating there on a regular basis. 

Rockport is now home!

In May 2018 we sold our home in Westborough and moved to Rockport. This fulfills a longtime goal of living and working in an artcentered community by the sea. We are thrilled to be here. The house we purchased at 4 Normanstone Drive has a gallery space on the first floor that is nearing completion. It's been freshly painted white; track lighting installed, and a wall-hanging system was added. The grand opening of this gallery is scheduled for Saturday, September 29th from 1:00-6:00. Invitations will be going out by mail and email, and will be posted on Facebook. 

August 2011: Juried in for Artist Membership in the North Shore Arts Association

This is a huge accomplishment! The NSAA receives many applicants for Artist Membership but only six of us were accepted. The jurying is a two-step process. Submission of five photographs of your work is the first step; if you pass that, you are invited to bring in the originals. Getting the phone call that I was accepted was very exciting! They requested my piece titled "Holy Mackerel" for the first show in the Spring.

Spring 2011: Joined North Shore Arts Association as an Associate Member

The North Shore Arts Association is on Pirate's Lane in East Gloucester. It has three large galleries and sits on Smith Cove with a beautiful view of the harbor. I decided to join to network with other artists and possibly try for Artist Membership. Their gallery has high-quality work of many local artists with six or so exhibits throughout the summer.
