The Essex County Artist Fund is Essex County Community Foundation’s response to the immediate and everyday needs of artists to be supported and lifted up across the county and across sectors. At ECCF, our philosophy is to build a creative ecosystem focused on awareness and appreciation for arts and culture, capacity building, collaboration, and cultural planning. Individual artists and arts/culture organizations are key to this network. www.eccf.org/creative-county.
Artist Name: Daniel DeLouise – Rockport
Creative Practice: Owner/Artist of Art Gallery in DeLouise Studo 53 Main St. Rockport Ma 01966
Artist Statement: We aspire to carry forward some of our great New England heritage and encourage future artists to do the same. I have on several occasions completed art demos during Artweek and offered the finished Artwork for auction to benefit the Open Door food pantry. Created opportunities for other artists to show in the gallery, organize weekly paints out with other artists and events for artists to paint and sell during community events Arts in Bloom Rockport. I’m also a board member of NSAA and CAPA.
