A Preview: August's Big Events at North Shore Arts!

The Cape Ann Sisterhood

The month of August opens with a festival of color at NSAA and a full roster of activities!

Exhibition III, the Artist Member Small Works show, enlivens the upstairs and front galleries with a variety of refreshing and inventive images, that promise to be a reminder of the warmth and color of these unhurried summer months for years to come.  One of the most anticipated shows of the season, small works provide the challenge of creating works, in a variety of mediums, within a limited canvas space of  20 x 24". Small works provide art lovers and collectors an opportunity to own a quite reasonably priced work that can easily grace smaller corners of a home or office. Perhaps most importantly, it is an opportunity to acquire works by some of Cape Ann's most notable artists.
Exhibition III opens August 5 and runs through September 17, with a "Meet the Artists" reception held on August 28th from 1 to 3 p.m. Mark your calendars! Receptions are free and open to the public.

Along with the Small Works show, stop into the Gordon Grant Gallery this month to take in a very special show, The Cape Ann Sisterhood. This exhibition, August 5- September 17, showcases the work and friendship of a group of women, all current or former members of the Board of the NSAA; artists whose bonds of friendship and loyalty have developed and deepened over the years and who are true "sisters in spirit". These connections of friendship and mutual interest have seen them through times of laughter and times of trouble. Come see  how their shared experiences and outlook are at the heart of what all great Art and great Art Associations are about! Opening Reception is August 5, from 5 to 8 p.m. Watch this Blog space for more information on the Cape Ann Sisterhood!

The North Shore Arts Association Annual Fine Art Auction
takes place this year on August 20 and will be The Event of the season! A gala evening, always highly anticipated and well attended, this years' Artists & Scholars Auction supports two very deserving Gloucester non-profits and needs your support.  Make plans with your friends to wine and dine that evening as nature puts on one of the most beautiful sunsets on Cape Ann, as seen from the NSAA galleries! Come out to bid vigorously on the artwork of some of Cape Ann's most notable artists to support the non-profit North Shore Arts Association and the Gloucester Education Foundation!

Visit NSAA's air-conditioned galleries this month and see what the excitement is all about!
