The Cape Ann Artisans – Summer Mini Tour 2023

August 12, 2023 @ 10:00 am 5:00 pm

The Cape Ann Artisans invite the public to visit select studios on Saturday, August 12th for a one-day event.   The timing coincides with Mass Tax Free weekend as well as the height of Gloucester and Rockport’s summer activities along the waterfront.  The summer Mini-Tour is an off-shoot of the larger tour that takes place in the Spring and Fall.

This year’s Mini-Tour includes these artists and the numbers coincide with their place on the full Spring and Fall tours.

3.   Beth Williams – Handmade Art-Glass Beads & Jewelry

10. Pam Stratton – Mosaics, Mixed Media & Jewelry

11. Cynthia Curtis – Ceramic Arts – Stoneware

13. David Archibald – Ceramic Arts – Porcelain & Stoneware

15. Danette English – Ceramic Arts

16. John Abisamra – Landscape Photography

17. Jacqueline Ganim DeFalco – Sea Glass Wearable Art – Hair Accessories and Jewelry

The Mini-Tour is a great chance to give out of town visitors a glimpse of the tour which has always occurred on the fringe of summer.   The Artisans have enjoyed meeting an entirely new set of summer Cape Ann residents.  With some advance planning it’s easy to see all seven studios.   The Cape Ann Artisans “From the Studio” blog on their website is a great way to find out more about each artist and prepare for your visit.   The Mass Sales Tax Holiday will take place August 12 and 13th.  Retail items of up to $2500, purchased in Massachusetts for personal use on these two days will be exempt for sales tax.  

The tour map is available online and can be downloaded here.
