Cape Ann Artisans Studio Tour

Cape Ann Artisans Open Studio

Cape Ann Artisans are among the most established artists currently living and working in Gloucester and Rockport. Some studios are centrally located while many are tucked away among Cape Ann’s distinctive and diverse neighborhoods.

We invite the curious and adventuresome art-lovers to visit us off-season for a deep dive into our creative life on Cape Ann. The tour is free and self-guided.

Professionally printed brochures containing the studio descriptions and the tour map are available at all studios, the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce, the Rockport Information Booth on Rte 127, and many other public venues; meanwhile, at home you can download and print the PDF to plan your trip. Print it out, mark it up, or just keep it on your portable device (smartphone, tablet,…) for travel.  As you approach each artisan studio on the road a bright, magenta Studio Tour banner will mark the studio location.

Beyond the biannual Open Studio Tours, individual artisans are engaged and active in Cape Ann’s thriving arts community; during non-tour times many can be found working in their studios by appointment (look for the*next to each artisan’s info for those open year round) or at other events in the area.

Partners

We would like to thank our partnering businesses for their support of Cape Ann Artisans; please visit and support them on your tour around Cape Ann.
