Galleries line the streets of this artist corner of Gloucester. On quiet days many artists are happy to visit and discuss their work.

Wonderful way to spend the day visiting art galleries and local cooperatives, restaurants, a cultural center, a marine railway and surrounded by water views. A must see day or night.

On Rocky Neck one can easily walk from one of many art galleries to the next, browsing all the while and taking in the scene. Each gallery has its own atmosphere and offerings, and one can see artists at work. Don't expect elegance. The houses...More

The docks have been rebuilt. The new studios smell fresh, like new wood and paint. The art is good, if you look closely and selectively. Some of the stuff is for tourists who want to spend a little and bring something colorful home. Lots of...More

On this small slice of land on Gloucester Harbor is a staggering collection of artists and artisans. Streets are narrow and winding, so on foot is the best way to explore.
