Memories of Painting on Cape Ann

During the month of September, Copley artist member Ann Marie O’Dowd was living in Gloucester, taking in the vistas of the North Shore. Every day she painted lobster boats, sandy beaches, and fishermen as she got to know her way around the small coastal community.

Last week Ann Marie gave a talk at the Cape Ann Museum in front of Cape Ann residents and non-residents alike. To let the audience experience the artist residency through her eyes, she showed pictures and videos of the scenery and her painting process on a slideshow.
