About Hive


Hi There

The Hive is equal parts working studio, gallery event space & clubhouse for the younger generation of Cape Ann creative folk. We formed early in 2009 to encourage art & idea collaborations, support systems and the creation of links between individuals and their community as a whole.



The Hive seeks to build community by providing a space for arts exploration, cross-pollination of ideas and promoting creative and active lifestyles on Cape Ann.


Our Blog

This blog is our mainline of communication. Content ranges from what’s happening at the The Hive, to what our contributing artists are currently working on, to general info of what’s going on on Cape Ann and the surrounding area.


Artists & Community

We are a pretty diverse crew, ranging both in our artistic styles as well as our passions. However, we find common ground in our vision to unite the creative & active community and make Cape Ann a more unique place. Check out our profiles to learn more about us.



For a place that has such a rich history with the arts, sometimes it feels like the current scene is much too focused on traditional fine art and is lacking on support for new mediums. Our gallery at The Hive sprouted from the fact that we have so many local friends doing interesting work, without a clear venue to show it.

Did You Get Your Hive Sticka!

Jon Conant from TheHiveCapeAnn and Everlution Forms brought a pile of these Hive Stickers to The Blogapalooza Event/Cape Ann Beer and Blog.  Click this text for more info on how you can get a free Hive Cape Ann Sticka!

As the regular readers of GMG can attest, I’ve become a huge fan of Roller Derby.  The shit is C R A Z Y!!!!!!!  How I found out about it was through East Gloucester residents and Local Blogger Jon Conant. Jon is married to the lovely Krush Puppy, a jammer for the Boston Massacre.  Her interview will be coming up.  You can check out his site by clicking this text

Here’s Krush Puppy from East Gloucester and Shelby Shattered From Essex spending some quality time in the penalty box-
