Drizzle, fog, and seasonal June temperatures did not deter crowds from gathering at Rocky Neck Gallery last night for the opening reception.  The festive party started at 5 pm with gallery artists welcoming new juried members along with friends, family and the Gloucester community to the newly refurbished gallery.  Kate Somers and her crew did an outstanding job upgrading the walls, display cases, lighting and traffic flow showcasing the variety of original artworks offered.

The gallery offers juried original art in painting, fine furniture, printmaking, jewelry, ceramics, sculpture, mixed media, photography and collage.  We are open 7 days a week from June 8th to October 15.  The hours are Sunday: 12-6, Monday to Wednesday: 11-6 and Thursday to Saturday: 11- 8.  Many more events are planned for the season: artist's demonstrations and talks, receptions, and the summer artists series.  New works are introduced often.  Artist members manage the gallery throughout the season so this is a great way to meet the artists and learn more about their work and historic Rocky Neck.  Please stop in and say hello! 

Special thanks to artist member & photographer Tom Robinson-Cox  & Kathy Chapman for provided these images of the opening reception.
