Art lovers will appreciate the magnificent view nestled along the harbor in Gloucester, Massachusetts. To stumble upon the existence of Rocky Neck Art Colony while exploring the peninsula is like discovering a treasure trove of history around every bend. While walking in the midst of the cultural community, a feeling of déjà vu is overwhelming. How can it be? To feel convinced of such an illusion that one has previously experienced such an encounter is mind-boggling. Perhaps it reminded me of the south of France, or the iris-laden paths of Monet’s Giverny. Quaint workshops, artist studios, galleries, and restaurants dot the inlet with American Impressionism en plein-air. To every art lover out there, make a note to add this unique art colony to your list of “must sees”.
