Some of the merchants on Bearskin Neck created a great new website with photos provided courtesy of Angela Cook of Oasis Rockport (near Helmut’s Strudel at the end of the Neck). Check it out for maximum information on all things ‘Neck-related in Rockport, www.bearskinneck.net, and be sure to tell ‘em you heard about it here on GMG!
Clarification from Angela Cook-
I heard that you posted about the BearskinNeck.Net site. Thank you. One thing that I want to clarify, though, is that this was not set up by the merchants. It was a joint effort between Oasis Rockport and WebWeDoIt. This is a site that offers a source of information for people visiting the area and listings for all the merchants. It will be a valuable resource and a great method of generating more business for the downtown Rockport merchants. Prior to the start of the season, there are some great promotions going on for enhanced listings and online promo packages for merchants. There are plans for growth and expansion of the site as time goes on and a focus on activities in the area as well as featured businesses listed on social media sites associated with BearskinNeck.Net. It will be the go-to place for all things Rockport.
A big celebration is planned for Mother’s Day weekend. Oasis Rockport, the newest Bearskin Neck art gallery, is holding their Grand Opening. The gallery features fine art scenic photography from Angela Cook. Angela’s focus is on dramatic seascapes and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets as well as many beautiful floral, wildlife and wilderness images. When asked about her photography, Angela is quoted as saying “I enjoy sharing the beauty, emotion and simplicity of life with my images.” Angela is a local photographer who loves Cape Ann and wants to share the beauty of that with her customers. Oasis Rockport will not just offer photos. There will be regularly scheduled walking photo tours as well as outdoor portrait shoots. Angela also plans on including some beautiful semi-precious stone jewelry crafted by Sharon Lane in her gallery as well as select hand-made keepsakes designed by Suzanne Ouellette. The Grand Opening of Oasis Rockport will be held May 7th from 9am to 6pm and May 8th from 10am to 5pm. There will be giveaways, refreshments and a good time to be had by all. This new gallery is located at 65 Bearskin Neck, right next to Helmut’s Strudel and is well worth a visit. If you would like a sneak preview, feel free to check out the Oasis Rockport website at www.oasisrockport.com and be sure to Like their Facebook page, where Angela posts her most recent work.
