Things To Do- The Hive Cape Ann Studio Opening Friday Night

I’ve been a fan of Jon and Karen Conant’s design and art work since the very first time I laid eyes on it.  Now their vision to bring young fresh art to the people will see become reality with the opening of The Hive Cape Ann

The artists will be represented at The Cape Ann Farmer’s Market also.

If you want to be refreshed and excited with the fresh talent coming up in the local art scene, make a point of checking out the opening Friday Night July 10th at 1 Station Square In Rockport.   see the flyer here

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.

Why?

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.
