The 34th Annual Cape Ann Artisans Studio Tour Announces New Dates & Returning Artisans

The Cape Ann Artisans have set the schedule for 2017. The Spring Tour will be held Saturday and Sunday, June 3-4.   The Fall Tour will encompass the entire three day Columbus Day Weekend, Oct 7-9. The tour time is 10AM-5PM. The Holiday Show will return during Rockport’s Main Street festivities on December 1st and 2nd.

The Artisans welcome back several members that were on sabbatical, Elizabeth Harty, Marcie Rae, and Bond Street Studio.   One new studio will be on the tour, that of Deborah Gonet, a mixed media artist.

The Artisans thank the community for its continued support of its partner program that includes sponsorships on the brochure and online. Annually, the Artisans print and distribute over 12,000 brochures which are distributed throughout the region. A few of these coveted spots remain available. For information, please contact Sinikka Nogelo:

The Artisans have also launched a program called “CAA in the Community” where a small group of artisans will create an on-site display and mini-presentation to inform your group about the tour in more detail. It’s a chance to meet the artists and help share the story with your organization and to better inform both residents and visitors. To request a visit by the artisans, please send a note to Jackie via
