Cape Ann Artisans Mini-Tour

This is a one day version of the Cape Ann Artisans Open Studios involving 7 of the artisans.

Based on the success of the July Mini-Tour, the Cape Ann Artisans look forward to a second one-day event on August 15th.   To beat the heat, the hours have been moved earlier.  Six of the studios will open at 8AM; Plum Cove Studios will open at 9AM and all will close at 4PM.

The participating artists include David Archibald, Cynthia Curtis, and Erin O’Sullivan & Scott Place (Twin Lights Studios) representing the ceramic arts.   They are joined by painter Jillian Demeri, sea glass jeweler

Additional time info:

Once again, the Artisans will take full advantage of their outdoor spaces to offer “safe” visiting and shopping.  The feedback from July was extremely encouraging with all artisans enjoying art sales, new regional visitors, former patrons, and people strolling the neighborhood and responding to the signature pink signage.

Visitors can easily group the tour into geographic proximity by visiting the Gloucester artists and Rockport artists in sequence by neighborhood from East Gloucester, to downtown, to Riverdale, Lanesville, and Rockport (or reverse). The full Cape Ann Artisan Tour map can be downloaded at

Artists are all taking appointment by phone, email, and/or Square for visitors that would like to reserve a specific time.  Appointments will be given first priority if the studio is at Covid-compliant capacity.  Look for our pink flags to way-find to the open studios!

The Artisans have also confirmed the Fall Tour for Saturday and Sunday, October 10-11.   Details for the Fall Tour are forthcoming.    All the Cape Ann Artisans welcome appointments throughout the season and hope to hear directly from visitors.

Artisans ask for visitors to be Covid-Compliant, wear facial coverings, practice social distancing, and use hand sanitizer which will be available at each studio.
