Chapito Diaz
Rocky Neck Art Colony is just part of the vibrant, enthusiastic art-scene out on Rocky Neck Avenue in East Gloucester. Affectionately called "The Neck," during the summer months, the avenue and the wharfs are bustling with activity in both the shops, boutiques and galleries. Not to be missed - Sigrid Olsen's gallery, Kiss On The Neck (my all-time favorite name for an icecream shop!), Rocky Neck Gallery, The Rudder (food), White Bird Gallery, and Aquatro Gallery.

As for Rocky Neck Art Colony, the artists display their work at the Rocky Neck Gallery and in some of the studios and galleries spread around The Neck. Linked to the 19th century and artists like Emile Gruppe, Marsden Hartley, Edward Hopper and Mary Cassatt, it has been both a refuge and a place to work; much like the harbor and the marine economy that surrounds the Colony now. A beautiful place to visit.
