My Connections     my social profile

Rocky Neck is home to one of the oldest
continuously operating art colonies in the United States.

Part of Gloucester’s Rocky Neck Cultural District, the Rocky Neck Art Colony offers an eclectic mixture of history and culture—a great place to stroll on a lazy summer day, to include in a day trip to the beach, or to enjoy a memorable meal at a variety of restaurants that are available to suit every taste with live entertainment enhancing the ambiance in restaurants and bars on weekends.

Notable plein air artists including Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, Frank Duveneck, Childe Hassam, lived and worked on Rocky Neck in the 19th and early 20th centuries, inspired the Cape Ann style of American Impressionism, a critically important contribution to American art history.

Along side these were modernists Stuart Davis, Milton Avery, Adolph Gottlieb, Nell Blaine and Mark Rothko who came to Cape Ann charmed by the landscape and working waterfront and found a community of artists who continue to thrive here.
