  1. Wish I lived in Gloucester, and was a painter! NSAA sounds like an exciting arts organization. Bravo!

    1. NSAA represents artists working in a variety of media; sculpture, painting, graphics and mixed media. The City of Gloucester is heaven in all seasons, enthusiastically supports its artists and cultural community and won the 2015 Commonwealth of MA Arts & Cultural Award. Join Us!

    This is a wonderful undertaking! I look forward to the opening of the NSAA once again...I miss it so. I hope to enter paintings in the shows again, and will do research into an ad for the publication. Sounds like an exciting year for all.

  3. Thanks for your comments, Elaine! We welcome your involvement on any level and are as excited for this Season to begin as you are. Together, we can make it a great one!
