START out this Thursday nurturing your creative spirit then on to your dance spirit to the evening sounds found on Rocky Neck.  Join us this July 7th, for Nights on the Neck, a festive event of art demos, live entertainment and open studios.  The activities start at Rocky Neck Gallery at 12 noon. And other galleries and artist studios are also open into the evening along with restaurants, cafe and shops.

At noon (12 pm) local artist Kate Somers will give a two hour demonstration on watercolor techniques.  Stop in and see this talented painter at work, sharing her knowledge of a colorful versatile medium.

From 3 - 5 pm Judy Robinson-Cox, a Cape Ann, Massachusetts photographer and mixed-media artist, will hold a mini-workshop on building and photographing fantasy environments.   This workshop is targeted for kids and please bring a digital camera.  Judy will give a brief talk and slide show.  Then she will build a set or two depending on the number of attendees and show how you can create environments with things around your house.  Everyone will be able to take photographs of the set.

And the festivities continue... from 6-8pm we will be enjoying the sounds of the local band The Quarry Men featuring Matt Natti on digeridoo, Eli Natti on upright bass and James Corcoran on the hand drum.

And there is plenty more to inspire you.  Original works of art from local and regional artists grace this gallery (and lots of other fine galleries & studios) in paintings, photography, jewelry, ceramics, sculpture, fine furniture and mixed media.  Fine food, drinks and merry making are available.  Plus you are near the refreshing breezes of the sea and in sight of blue ocean waters. Come down to the Neck for a fun day into night!
