Artist and artisan studio and gallery spaces:
For over 25 years, artists have pooled together to rent gallery space at Local Colors 121 Main Street. Established in 1978, the gallery operates as a co-op, sharing resources and all operations and administrative duties. They are the staff so there is always an artist on hand! The monthly rent split among the invited artists is modest as Cape Ann Savings (109 Main Street) owns the building and is a stalwart community and arts supporter. The roster is full right now.
Gallery display of another sort is part of goodlinens plans for 130 Main Street and will be installed along the right wall as you enter (photo below was looking left). A curated small selection of artisans will be invited to rent on a monthly basis for a modest fee. Owner Jo Anne Chirico designed special matrices currently in stages of fabrication. Look for three artisans in focus by October.
