So many thanks to everyone who came out for my talk at the Cultural Center last night. Thank you to old friends who were there and thank you to my new friends; it was a pleasure to meet you! We had a wonderful turnout. The Cultural Center at Rocky Neck and the Rocky Neck Art Colony did a tremendous job hosting. With special thanks and gratitude to Martha Swanson, Suzanne Gilbert Lee, Jane Keddy, Karen Ristuben, Tom Nihan, and Mary Lou. The Beautiful Birds of Cape Ann thank you to!

What to do Today

Today’s a great day to tour the Art Gallery’s on Cape Ann. What else is there to do on a warm Drizzly, Foggy almost Summer Day? Boating, Beach, Cookouts?   Maybe Next weekend.

Take a walk thru Downtown Gloucester, Rockport, Rocky Neck and check out all the talented  Cape Ann artists.

Go visit a gallery today, take some pictures and send them in to GMG to be posted.

The John Nesta Gallery on Rocky Neck

I had Great Time Visiting John at his Gallery on Rocky Neck this past weekend. He is a wealth of information on Painting and the Gloucester Waterfront. If you’ve never been, put it on your “ToDo” List.

John’s there 7 days a week, All Year Long. You can usually see his Red Van or as he calls it his “Studio on Wheels” parked out front.

He has an Easel and everything else he needs for Painting in the back so he can paint in any weather conditions. 

John is a prolific Painter and you’ll see that when you visit his Gallery.

Here are some Photos I took Last weekend at The John Nesta Gallery.
