CAPE ANN GUIDE & DIRECTORY 2017–2018

ESSEX

As the birthplace of the fried clam, this charming town along the winding Essex River and marshes yields some of the finest seafood on Cape Ann. Whether you care for a cup of chowder or a plate full of those famous fried clams, you will not be disappointed. But the quiet town of just over 3,000 residents has much more to offer than great seafood. Antiquing, a premier Essex attraction for generations, remains a favorite pastime for locals as well as visitors. Shipbuilding has been part of Essex’s heritage for more than 400 years, and draws people from far and wide to admire what it takes to build

beautiful wooden ships, some still sailing Cape Ann’s harbors and waterways today! A visit to the Essex Shipbuilding Museum is a must to truly appreciate the rich ship-building heritage of this small community. Kayaking or taking a cruise down the Essex River will surely give you a unique view of the tidal salt marsh as you meander with the river out toward Conomo Point and Ipswich Bay.

GLOUCESTER

America’s oldest seaport, this city of nearly 30,000 residents has a storied heritage. By the mid-19th-century Gloucester had become the fishing capital of North America, and fishing is still a way of life for many in the community today. Local restaurants rely on the fresh catch Gloucester’s fishermen bring in daily. Like their Essex neighbors, Gloucester shipwrights built many of Cape Ann’s earliest ships and schooners, dating back to 1713. CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM


Gloucester Harbor. coastal-exposure.com

Choose among a host of dining options from boiled lobsters and fried clams in the rough to fine al fresco dining in town or by the sea. Take a stroll on the HarborWalk along Gloucester’s busy working waterfront, enjoy the panoramic vistas of Gloucester Harbor at the Fishermen’s Memorial Statue (“The Man at the Wheel”) on Stacy Boulevard or from Stage Fort Park, or tour Rocky Neck and its art colony and cultural district. Get on the water for a fun sail or cruise around the harbor, or venture farther off shore and enjoy the best whale watching and deep sea fishing in New England. Experience the fullness of Gloucester’s remarkable history, abundant attractions and unmatched scenic beauty. CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM

MANCHESTER-BY-THE-SEA

Founded as Jeffrey’s Creek in the mid-19th-century, this town is located at the southern end of Cape Ann. In 1989 the state legislature made the name official as a means to differentiate the town from its larger neighbor to the north, in New Hampshire. Visits to Singing Beach, aptly named because of how the sand resonates when you walk on it, Masconomo Park along Manchester Harbor and Tuck’s Point are all well worth your time. Attractive retail shops, restaurants and galleries fill the town of just over 5,000 residents. The Manchester Histor-

ical Museum’s Trask House is a must-see to get the complete story of this town known for its historic architecture.

ROCKPORT

This picturesque seaside village, located at the most northeasterly part of Cape Ann, features beautiful parks and beaches, historic lighthouses and art galleries galore. Rockport’s walkable downtown is filled with quaint shops that include bookstores, candy and gift stores, cafés and ice cream shops as well as art galleries, specialty shops, jewelers and many places to dine. A leisurely stroll along Main Street and Bearskin Neck will give visitors every imaginable opportunity to buy that perfect keepsake to remember and cherish their time on Cape Ann. Visit Halibut Point State Park or walk along Rockport’s scenic shores in the footsteps of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau and be captivated, as they were, by Rockport’s unique charm.

HAT WOULD CAPE ANN BE WITHOUT ITS PEOPLE? OF COURSE, THE region has a compelling landscape: working waterfronts, pristine beaches, and, according to the local artists, a quality of light to rival Venice. Yet that is only half the story explaining why so many different types—creators, innovators and the stewards of tradition—either flock to Cape Ann, or never leave in the first place. The following six conversations with local notables offer just a few snapshots of the region’s many welcoming faces, and show how the coastal life is celebrated in this pocket of New England.

I

n the summer of 2016, Chef Anthony Caturano opened his Old World-style Italian restaurant, Tonno, in Gloucester. It has been a busy year, and Caturano hasn’t yet had a moment to think about the upcoming first anniversary. “It’s a big milestone, for sure,” he says. “I know we will have something special cooking! I just don’t know what exactly, yet.” Caturano was already known in the Boston restaurant scene for Prezza, his North End restaurant named after the

Caturano also recommends paying attention to his restaurant’s lengthy and ever-changing list of specials that acts as a seasonal partner to the perennial classics. “We buy the best products, and we buy locally sourced products when we can. The way I prefer to run the kitchen, I’d support a small, local producer over these large ones any day. Right now, we get our sea salt from Atlantic Saltworks, harvested right here in Gloucester.” In the summer, Caturano drives by the ar-

ea’s farms to pick up fresh produce. “I never really pay attention to or follow food trends, but when it comes to the farm-to-table thing—well, I just hope it’s not a trend. It’s the way food should be, period.” Caturano is pleased that Tonno’s dining room is also just the way it should be. “The dining room should mirror the food. Our dishes are approachable, but we set the bar high in terms of quality. We want to please that sophisticated diner, and we want the couple who enjoy dressing up for dinner, but of course we also want that couple coming in after a day on the beach, just to relax and eat well. We are a fun place, casual rather than formal, because comfort is just so nice.” As for Tonno’s first anniversary and beyond? Caturano is looking forward to it. “We’re going to continue to set that bar high. And I think we’ll stay busy!”

town in Italy where his grandmother was born. After more than 15 years of accolades in Boston, Caturano’s decision to expand to Gloucester was an easy one. His parents had been coming to Cape Ann since the 1980s, and Caturano liked this cozy, coastal region that had become so familiar to him. He was also convinced that his traditional style of Italian cooking would be welcomed by both locals and visitors, just as it is in the North End. “There are a lot of people here with Italian roots, and celebrating that heritage is just a popular thing to do. People love it.” Gloucester is also perfectly located to take advantage of both Italian traditions and local products. Take codfish. “Gloucester was founded on codfish,” Caturano says, “so a lot of people in this area grew up eating it. Cod also appears in some of these traditional Italian dishes.” On Tonno’s main menu, guests can order “Cod Oreganatta” for example—though

t times slow and soulful, at times brimming with a vivacious, folksy twang, Cape Ann singer/songwriter Chelsea Berry’s music commands attention with its wit and vivid emotions. It should come as no surprise that Berry herself exudes the same eagerness to form emotional connections. “I just want to be somewhere where people are listening,” she says. “I want to be in front of people who are emotionally available—people who are ready to be swept up in whatever it is I have to dish out.” Luckily for Berry, Cape Ann is more than willing to lend an ear. Berry discovered the region on a whim. While studying at Berklee College of Music in Boston, the Alaskan native found herself growing restless. “I was bored of the scene down there, and wanted a change. So, I got on a train one day and ended up in Gloucester. Immediately, I fell in love with it.” Fast forward to today—Berry is living locally, a professional musician with several albums out, and a fixture at Cape Ann venues, including the Shalin Liu Performance Center in Rockport, where she has serenaded a captivated

Singer/songwriter Chelsea Berry.

“I got on a train one day and ended up in Gloucester. Immediately, I fell in love with it.” —Chelsea Berry audience multiple times. “It’s unbelievable how supportive people are here. All of the local artists support each other. We go to each other’s shows, and then we run into each other at the coffee shop in the morning and the restaurant in the evening. It’s beautiful because we are not really in competition with one another. That’s not too common in a lot of places.” Of course, “I’ll always be an Alaskan,” Berry admits. “I love Alaska and I go back as often as I can. But... I’ve lived in a lot of places between Alaska and Cape Ann—in Montana, in Nashville, in Chicago—and I have never felt so welcome and supported as I have here. It’s definitely my second home, and my second family.” For Berry, as for the many creative souls who have found refuge in the reCAPEANNVACATIONS.COM

gion’s natural beauty, Cape Ann’s role as muse is just as important as local patronage and friendships. “Obviously, it’s inspiring to be in such a beautiful place. The ocean is right there, the sunrises are just epic, and there is a lot of wildlife once you get into the woods and out on the water. That makes for really good writing, good painting and good music—all those things.” Some of her favorite activities include walking to Good Harbor Beach, going rock climbing in Newburyport, or attending a session at one of Gloucester’s yoga studios. The question of finding time to enjoy her beloved outdoor sports while pursuing a career in music is simply not a problem for Berry. In her enviable world, work and pleasure comprise one and the same life.

“I write songs as I’m skiing. I write them when I’m biking. I write them when I’m hiking, or when I’m driving long distances. Rather than turning on the radio or distracting myself with other things when I have a long time outside, I write music.” Many people tell her that they dream of having just a taste of her life; for them, Berry offers this window into her philosophy: “You don’t have to work full time as a musician to participate in my world. You can learn to sing or take guitar lessons, and then sit in on jams—like the Monday Night Open Jam at the Rhumb Line [in Gloucester]. You can do all those things, and you should do those things, because we are fortunate to be alive and I firmly believe in taking advantage of every single part of life that we can, while we have it.” CAPE ANN GUIDE & DIRECTORY 2017–2018

hen it comes to Cape Ann’s maritime heritage, many people immediately conjure up the iconic image of courageous fishermen hauling in the day’s hard-won catch. Yet what happens out on the water is only half of the story, and half of the hard work, determination, and reverence to tradition that are the core of this region’s spirit. Before any ship sails out on the open seas, it must first be built. Shipbuilding was central to the Village of Essex’s economy for much of its history, ever since the first “Chebacco boats” were constructed in the mid 17th century. “It began out of necessity,” explains Justin Demetri, an historian and visitor services director for the Essex Shipbuilding Museum. “With farming being difficult on salt marsh and granite, the settlers sup-

The Essex Shipbuilding Museum.

“Essex is still a Mecca for maritime enthusiasts of all stripes and although the glory days are over, [ship]building never really ceased in town.” —Justin Demetri plemented their agriculture with fishing. It was this group of fishermen-farmers that began the town’s well-earned reputation for affordable, high-quality, fishing vessels.” Word spread quickly, and the village grew into “a shipbuilding factory” that supplied Gloucester with its famous fishing schooners. Demetri estimates that, between the 1660s and 1940s, Essex shipbuilders launched approximately 4,000 vessels. Not bad for a New England village with a population of just 1,500. Even today, this legacy is visible. “Essex is still a Mecca for maritime enthusiasts of all stripes and although the glory days are over, building never really ceased in town,” says Demetri. “I grew up in a Gloucester fishing family, and as a kid in the 1980s, there were still a couple of Essex-built draggers in the fleet. One of them was my family’s.” Demetri’s Cape Ann roots and firsthand experiences make him a passionate guardian of this corner of New England history. “I grew up in the Fort Point

neighborhood of Gloucester, right across the street from the site of the St. Peter’s Fiesta. My family has deep roots in Gloucester’s Sicilian fishing tradition.… At the age of 12 I became one of the original members of The Gloucester Adventure, [a historic preservation society that operates the 1926 dory-fishing schooner Adventure], when I gave the first recorded donation. This led to a friendship with the late-great [journalist and historian] Joe Garland, which got me hooked (pun intended) on local history.” “Cape Ann is a unique place,” Demetri continues. “It goes beyond clichés like beaches and fried clams. Not that there is anything wrong with these things, but there is more here—a spirit that draws visitors and makes them want to stay. The Essex Shipbuilding Museum is an example of that unique spirit, a small museum with a very big story to tell.” The museum’s storytelling involves impressive archives and exhibits, not the least of which are ship models (some on

loan from the Smithsonian) on view in the museum’s Central School House. Yet for Demetri, “the most impressive artifact on display has to be the hull of the Evelina M. Goulart, a near 90-foot schooner from 1927 located in our active yard.” The key word here is active—this is one museum that isn’t content with wall text and armchair scholarship. The current president, Captain Harold Burnham, has used the museum’s shipyard alongside his family’s own ancestral yard to build five authentic wooden schooners. There are also opportunities for Cape Ann’s visitors to sail on some of them. Still, Demetri laments the changes that have occurred even during his own lifetime. “I fear that we risk losing what makes Cape Ann so special as future generations lose connection to their past. It is critical that we do not forget where we came from.” The Essex Shipbuilding Museum, with its shipyard and compelling stories from both past and present, is proudly doing its part to keep the story alive.

CAPE ANN PROFILES: KEN KNOWLES however, his work is hardly insular in its outlook. As a young man with artistic ambition who made his first sale straight off the easel for $300, he traveled “to every corner of New England,” and has since explored Europe. “My favorite trip was definitely Venice,” he remembers. “Venice is one of those places that has a similar, magical light to it. Of course, there’s a lot more about Venice that is magical than just the light. But, as the years passed, I realized that there was so much right here, too. There are many places in the world, and you can go and find all sorts of stuff to paint, but for me these days, leaving Cape Ann is like leaving a beach town in order to go on vacation at a beach town. It doesn’t make sense.” And so Knowles spends his days recording the light that falls over his home-

“Rockport, Gloucester…tend to have an incredible light that hangs in the air, especially in the summer. Most places don’t have quite the same magic. The art world hears about that, and they flock here.” —Ken Knowles Knowles himself never had to make that migration. He’s a Rockport native. Growing up in this community dotted with eager artists, it was not difficult for Knowles to determine his calling, even in his teens. “Someone set me up with an easel and showed me how to paint outdoors after they’d seen my drawing ability. I fell in love with it. I still had another year and a half of high school, but by the time I had graduated, I went headlong into painting and never looked back.” Knowles studied under traditional landscape masters on Cape Ann, including Stapleton Kearns and T.M. Nicholas; CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM

Knowles is proud of what he terms his “ordinary life” and readily admits that neither his daily practice nor his paintings themselves fit the contemporary definition of innovative art-making. “It’s not avant-garde. A lot of the world, especially in major cities, would even call this manner of American Impressionism carried on in the traditional way ‘old-fashioned.’” Yet Knowles does not see himself trapped in the past. “I carry on where those great painters whom I admire, who are gone, have left off. I am a believer that art continues to go on forever. You can’t really reach the pinnacle of any form. If you believe that art has no end, then you can keep trying to make your work greater, and never get to a point where you think you are the greatest, or you need to change or move on to something else.”

hat do Venice, Italy, and Cape Ann, Massachusetts, share in common? According to Rockport-based plein-air painter Ken Knowles, it’s high-quality light—the single most important element for a landscape artist. “Rockport, Gloucester—any of the places on this side of the bridge [that connects Cape Ann to the mainland]—tend to have an incredible light that hangs in the air, especially in the summer. We don’t have any big mountains to block it, so right down until the last light, it’s raking across this island. It’s really hard to describe exactly what it is, other than saying that most places don’t have quite the same magic. The art world hears about that, and they flock here.”

town. Painting an average of 40-50 hours per week, Knowles maintains a regular work/family life balance with a regimen that places him before the easel by 8 a.m. most mornings. “I’ve learned that the best way [to pursue a career as an artist] is to do it like a 9–5 job. Earlier on in my career, I would be a bit more spontaneous, searching around for inspiration to hit. Once you’ve got a couple of kids, you have to learn to do it a different way. What inspires me now is to be an artist; I don’t need an additional sense of inspiration for the subject of each particular painting to be successful.”

Of course, having a studio in Rockport helps when it comes to surrounding oneself with worthy subjects that offer endless appeal. “ I do love marine work,” Knowles admits. “I love the schooners, that kind of timeless old harbor scene, and anything that has a lot of water and a lot of light in it.” There it is again—light. Knowles can’t stress its centrality enough. “The most important thing in my paintings is light. Without light, the painting is dead. It took me a long time to learn that—I always knew there was something about light quality—but now I know absolutely: it’s everything.” CAPE ANN GUIDE & DIRECTORY 2017–2018

utside, fishermen are weighing their catch; inside, Cape Ann locals and visitors mingle over a “Fisherman’s Brew,” the Cape Ann Brewing Company’s flagship beer. “It’s my first beer, my baby, my first child,” enthuses Cape Ann Brewing Company owner Jeremy Goldberg. A well-balanced amber lager that pairs well with most anything, Fisherman’s Brew is “a good beer to sit and reflect with,” as Goldberg puts it. Cape Ann Brewing’s line of beers—and really everything about its beer hall-style pub that overlooks Gloucester’s working waterfront—reflects this North Shore craft brewery’s mission to exemplify “all that’s encompassed in the passion and creativity in the world of craft beer, but also the grit and courage of the North Atlantic fishing fleet.” A combination of passion and courage to venture into the unknown is a good description for Cape Ann Brewing’s genesis story, as well. “I worked on Wall Street as a bond broker,” begins Goldberg. In the wake of

Brewing Company released its first beer: Fisherman’s Brew. While he claims that, after more than 10 years of company growth, his job as an owner is now all about “washing the dishes and writing the checks,” Goldberg is the original brewer, and holds a lot of insights into the wild world of craft brewing. “For us, the beer industry has definitely changed significantly. When we got started in 2004, it was right at the end of basically a small collapse of the industry that followed a time of rapid growth in the late ‘90s. A lot of breweries closed. A lot of mistakes that were made were corrected, and craft brewing rediscovered some consistency. Since then, especially over the past five years, there has been such an explosion of the industry. The number of breweries when I started was probably about 1,100 to 1,200 in North America, and now there are some 5,000 or 6,000, with many more planned for opening in 2017.” In today’s world of food trends, where consumers have a penchant for the next new thing, “this isn’t an industry where

you can just sit there, make a standard amber lager, and that’s it,” Goldberg explains. “You really have to be willing to take chances and do some unique things.” That said, Goldberg has noticed an interesting parallel trend. “It seems that everyone wants to try something new, but really only in terms of a new brewery. The styles have come to a stagnant point. For example, the IPA has become so dominant in the industry that it’s almost all-encompassing. So, while the industry has grown, it’s also shrunk in a lot of ways.” In the end, Goldberg’s goal for Cape Ann Brewing is to remain true to what he loves, impressing people with the thoughtfulness that goes into these recipes. It’s right there in the mission statement: “In this industry where so many tack to the starboard or port without regard, we chart our course straight and true.…We toe the line of innovation and convention because, like the local fishermen, we know that we must keep up with the times in which we live, while remembering and honoring that which has come before.”

the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Goldberg experienced an early mid-life crisis—he needed to do something different with his life. On hiatus from Wall Street, he joined filmmaker Paul Kermizian on a tour of 38 breweries across the United States in 40 days for Kermizian’s feature-length documentary American Beer. “I fell in love with the industry during this trip. I wanted to be a part of it somehow, some way.” Home from the trip and out of work, Goldberg got in touch with his brother-in-law, who owned a warehouse in Gloucester, his father, who was willing to invest in a project, and a consultant, who considered Gloucester to be a good fit for Goldberg’s craft brewery concept. A year and a half later, the Cape Ann

ou really can’t complain when your job requires you to be out on the water and on the beach day in and day out,” says Cliff Amero, owner of Essex River Cruises, a Cape Ann fleet that offers an assortment of charter and excursion options for all occasions. Amero spends the season enjoying an ever-changing schedule of activities. “Our days range from having three public, narrated sightseeing cruises, to hosting two private Tidal Beach events… and then another sunset cocktail cruise in the evening.” Passengers on his Essex River Queen vessels range from curious visitors, to avid bird-watchers hoping to spot coastal species, to large family gatherings celebrating an anniversary or birthday with a traditional New England clambake on a quiet strip of tidal beach. Even businesses join in. “I have very fond memories of one company,” Amero recalls, “who joined us every summer on their annual summer outing for a Tidal Beach Clambake because they had such a wonderful bonding experience, and ap-

“It is my honest opinion that there is no other way to experience Essex than on the water.” —Cliff Amero preciated the uniqueness of the area and of the service we provide.” Founded in 1992, one of the primary goals of Amero’s company was to make accessible areas that would otherwise be difficult for the average visitor to see. “It is my honest opinion that there is no other way to experience Essex than on the water,” Amero admits. Aboard for a sightseeing cruise, passengers can listen as the captain narrates specific points of historical, cultural and environmental interest, while seeing “everything from eagles, osprey and deer, to clammers working hard on the clam-flats to chase down those steamers that will be served fresh at one of the local restaurants in town.” Spending so much of his days out on the water around Essex, Amero is senCAPEANNVACATIONS.COM

sitive to the natural wealth of the local habitat, and hopes that Essex River Cruises can instill a protective outlook among clients, as well. “The marshes serve as one of richest ecosystems in the world and they play extremely important roles: providing a habitat for both land and sea animals, preventing erosion, and providing a buffer to protect the shoreline. As a company, we aim to have as little impact on the environment as possible while providing a way to appreciate the area…and educate people.” Another key takeaway that Amero hopes to leave visitors with is that “the history of [Essex] is alive and well.” On the sightseeing tour, visitors are navigated past “shipbuilders who have been operating for hundreds of years, [and]

fishing ports that have been in operation since the founding of the city.” There is even a bit of Hollywood glamour in these waters. Some of the many films made on Cape Ann include The Crucible, The Perfect Storm and, most recently, Manchester by the Sea with Oscar-winner Casey Affleck. “I grew up in the area and spent a number of years travelling around the world, but as cliché as it is, there’s no place like home.” Amero concludes. “Cape Ann not only has some of the most scenic coastline in New England, but it has such a rich culture that is hard to find in any other small New England city. Once you visit this magical place, you will understand why it’s so hard to leave!” CAPE ANN GUIDE & DIRECTORY 2017–2018

V

isitors to Cape Ann will find an incredible variety of hidden byways that lead to some of the most scenic and less traveled parts of the region. Among them are public footpaths, hiking and biking trails, and serene natural parks and preserves. The Trustees of Reservations (TTOR), Essex County Greenbelt (ECG) and state and local parks offer a variety of trails where visitors can enjoy coastal landscapes, peaceful woodlands and old granite quarries. Along the shore, several well-marked footpaths lead travelers to public lands with sweeping vistas of the sea. Just south of Rockport’s central village, the Headlands presents an unparalleled view of the harbor and bay from atop its rocky outcrop. Farther south, one can walk along Emerson Point to see an up-close view of the iconic twin lighthouses of Thacher Island. Casually stroll along Gloucester’s HarborWalk and Stacy Boulevard for views that have inspired Cape Ann artists for centuries. In the center of Cape Ann, between Gloucester and Rockport, lie more than 3,000 acres of undeveloped woodlands known as Dogtown, which encompasses a loop around the Goose Cove Reservoir and more ambitious hikes to historic home sites and the “Babson

Boulders.” It was settled in the late 17th-century, and subsequently abandoned in the early 19th-century for the fishing life on the coast. Throughout Cape Ann, many parks offer places for day travelers to take a break and enjoy the region’s beautiful natural settings. On the far north point of the cape is Halibut Point State Park (Route 127, Rockport). The park presents one of the most awe-inspiring views available on Cape Ann, with a large, fresh water-filled quarry in the foreground and the ocean just beyond. Ravenswood Park (TTOR, Route 127, Gloucester) with its 600 acres, offers a natural setting with 10 miles of well-maintained trails through the mature forests of West Gloucester. Nearby Stage Fort Park is home to the remnants of an early 19th-century fort overlooking the harbor, along with two public beaches, many foot trails, a playground and several picnic areas. Just west of Gloucester is the small community of Essex, situated on the banks of the Essex River and the Great Marsh, and best known for its shipbuilding legacy and present day antique offerings and restaurants. Cogswell’s Grant, a property of Historic New England, is a 160-acre working farm on the Great Marsh honoring nearly four centuries

of coastal farming. The Cox Reservation (Route 133, Essex, ECG) is covered in easy walking trails with beautiful vistas of the marsh leading to the banks of the Essex River. And the Stavros Reservation (TTOR), following a short hike uphill, reveals spectacular vistas over the marsh to Essex Bay. Just south of Essex is the picturesque town of Manchester-bythe-Sea, boasting a lovely harbor and one of the most scenic harborside parks in all of New England—Masconomo Park. Finally, don’t miss the Coolidge Reservation (TTOR), and its wooded trails that lead to an expansive seaside lawn and a corner of Magnolia Beach. Cape Ann’s varied terrain offers wonderful bicycling opportunities for both on-road and mountain bikers. The best on-road bike routes (25–51 mile loops) hug the coast from Manchester-by-the-Sea to Rockport, with a loop back into Downtown Gloucester. Follow the Essex Coastal Scenic Byway route counter-clockwise for the best views. Start in Gloucester for the short loop or extend your ride with a trek through Manchester and Essex. Shorter bike loops include Goose Cove Reservoir in Gloucester (three miles, paved off-road trail, one hill) and Gloucester’s Backshore loop (6-miles, on-road loop, ocean views). The easiest off-road biking terrain can be found in Ravenswood Park. Dogtown Common offers more challenging mountain biking opportunities, including long, winding banked trails and rocky terrain.

CAPE ANN and the TRADITION of PLEIN AIR PAINTING BY JUDITH A. CURTIS

I

T IS WELL OVER 150 YEARS SINCE THE FIRST ARTISTS ARRIVED ON CAPE Ann to paint nature on the spot. En plein air, as the French call it, meaning the artist executed his or her canvas “in the open air,” with their subject in front of them. This was not an entirely new concept. In England, John Constable and J. M.

W. Turner were sketching outdoors as early, in Turner’s case, as the late 1790s. These works tended to be topographical in nature. That is, they were more occupied with accuracy of place and character based on traditional techniques, than his later, romanticized views. Constable, in his turn, loved to catch the quick impression of moving skies and distant vistas, observing the naturalistic effect of a scene. In Europe, the 17th-century French master Claude Lorrain preempted everyone with his goal of working

outside the studio to achieve a quality of inherent beauty determined by the Classical concept of high idealism in art. For many artists the invention of the metal paint tube in the mid-1800s, supplanting the usual pig’s bladder, made carrying oil paints out of doors much easier. The academics felt it was hardly necessary to actually paint outdoors; a classical landscape as a backdrop to, say, a religious theme, could be executed in the studio according to basic principles and one’s knowledge and personal ob-

servations. Nevertheless, a whole new school of thought reared its head among the younger, avant-garde artists, particularly in Paris and the surrounding countryside. Claude Monet, Edouard Manet and Berthe Morisot, to name but three, quickly rose to the forefront of this trendsetting approach, and into this milieu of impressionist seeing and high key color—as opposed to darker tones— came visiting American art students, among them William Morris Hunt, Frank Benson, Edmund C. Tarbell and Philip L. Hale. While there were many American students shaped by the ideals of French Impressionism, Benson, Hale and Tarbell, in particular, influenced future genCAPEANNVACATIONS.COM


erations of artists with their instruction at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. However, rather than just teaching the idea of using a high key palette to emulate the effect of light on a subject, the Americans taught their students to retain an effect of academic drawing in their work, rather than lose all shape in favor of loose brushwork and color and that, together with a unique nationwide genre, developed into what we know today as American Impressionism. William Morris Hunt was one of the first teachers to bring students to Cape Ann in the mid-1870s when he opened a school of plein air painting in Magnolia, just down the coast from Gloucester Harbor itself. So unusual was the sight of a painter working at his easel out of doors that Hunt eventually began wearing a sign around his neck saying, “I can’t talk and I can’t hear!” to discourage spectators. In 1877, Hunt—an enthusiastic plein air painter—executed a painting of Gloucester Harbor that caused him to exclaim, “I believe I have painted

William Morris Hunt was one of the first teachers to bring students to Cape Ann in the mid-1870s when he opened a school of plein air painting in Magnolia. a picture with light in it!” The painting was later purchased by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Prior to Hunt’s arrival, Gloucester was also home to Fitz Henry Lane whose well-established reputation as an artist and lithographer meant his work reached a wide audience, many of whom were artists subsequently inspired to see the area for themselves. It is these beginnings that enable Cape Ann’s claim to being the earliest, continuously active art colony in America. By the late 1880s, East Gloucester’s Rocky Neck in the summertime played host to so many artists and students that an entire hospitality industry sprang up to accommodate them. Frank Duveneck came from Cincinnati, OH, regularly to spend the summer on Cape Ann, and was always accompanied by his students from CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM

the Art Academy, a group that included Joseph DeCamp, John H. Twachtman, Edward H. Potthast and Theodore Wendel, among countless others. It has been suggested that Frank Duveneck came to Cape Ann because it is the same latitude (almost) as Venice, suggesting a similar quality of light. Others claim Duveneck came to Gloucester to visit his infant son, Frank Jr., who was being raised by relatives after the death of his mother, Elizabeth Boott Duveneck— relatives who summered on Cape Ann. Interestingly, Elizabeth Duveneck had been an early pupil of William Morris Hunt in Magnolia. Whatever the reason for Duveneck’s continuing presence on Cape Ann—he summered here for at least two decades— he produced a vast quantity of plein air landscapes working alongside DeCamp,

Twachtman, Potthast and Bessie Wessel, often on Banner Hill, which offered aerial as well as linear perspective in a wonderful panorama overlooking Gloucester Harbor. Bessie Wessel, one of a handful of women students from the Cincinnati Art Academy (CAA), married artist and CAA instructor Herman Wessel in an intimate ceremony at Duveneck’s summer studio in Gloucester in August 1917. Other notables who painted on Cape Ann read like a Who’s Who in American Art. Willard L. Metcalf and Childe Hassam painted here together in 1895, Hassam returning numerous times afterwards, while William M. Paxton and his artist wife Elizabeth often stayed at the Harbor View Hotel, the scene for Paxton’s celebrated painting, The White Verandah. John Sloan, who created 90 paintings on his first visit—more than CAPE ANN GUIDE & DIRECTORY 2017–2018

he had done in his entire career—and Stuart Davis, Theresa Bernstein and her husband William Meyerowitz brought a New York moment to the area and introduced a bold touch of the modernist to a normally conservative area. Marsden Hartley made his reputation with a series of paintings depicting the raw nature of inner Cape Ann’s Dogtown, Edward Hopper found a way to break loose from a career as an illustrator to become a fine artist, while Winslow Homer’s daring watercolors made his name and fixed Gloucester in the minds and hearts of the art community forever. Second generation practitioners such as A. T. Hibbard, Emile Gruppé and Frederick J. Mulhaupt continued the traditions of excellence. And let us not forget the artists from Manchester-by-the-Sea and Essex. Ann Sophia Towne Darrah often painted in Manchester, while Charles Hopkinson regularly invited friends and fellow painters such as Marion Monks Chase, Charles Hovey Pepper and Polly Thayer Starr to his home, Sharksmouth.

Essex was also a favorite location for the Cape Ann artists, and can boast of Kenyon Cox and son, Allyn, as well as Arthur Wesley Dow, George Wainwright Harvey, Theodore Wendel and Harriet Lord. Cape Ann, originally an isthmus before the Blynman Canal was cut through in 1643, is edged by a granite coastline that is both paintable and protective. The harbor at Gloucester was once home to the largest fishing fleet on the eastern seaboard, while Rockport—and its famous icon, Motif No. 1—offers a more intimate view of the fishing industry so necessary to the island. Fish and granite, the mainstay industries of Cape Ann, offered constantly changing scenes

to tempt the plein air painter. And one had to paint quickly, lest the subject of the painting suddenly up sail and leave. The docks offered a plethora of subject matter. As Herman Wessel once commented, “Should a boatman, at 6 a.m., noiselessly raise a sail to dry it after a night’s rain it immediately wakes every artist and they hurry out without any breakfast to get the best place to sketch the sail.”1 The granite quarries also offered the throb and rhythm of men at work beloved by the outdoor artist, and in these instances, whether picturing the quarry itself, or men loading barges at the Granite Wharf in Rockport, the drama and light were enough to stimulate the artistic appetite. And it is true that the light of Cape Ann is quite different from its many rival art colonies. No doubt Prov-

incetown, Old Lyme, Cos Cob, Ogunquit and Monhegan consider their light spectacular, too, but Cape Ann has ambiance and history, as well as a roseate light favored by plein air painters. True, Smith Cove in Gloucester Harbor is no longer the “cove of a thousand masts,” that it was in 1903, and the granite quarries no longer ring with the sound of hammers and wedges, but an artist is often the historian of his or her day. As those artists who painted a century ago recorded the events of their time, so the artists of today will continue the tradition of painting out of doors and capturing the effect of light falling upon their subject. 1

S

IX ICONIC LIGHTHOUSES STAND GUARD ALONG THE CAPE ANN coastline protecting seafarers from rocky shores and shoals. They offer historians and romantics alike a glimpse into Cape Ann’s maritime lore and legacy. Lighthouses are a comfort to mariners to this day, and despite the use of GPS and electronic aids for navigation they still symbolize home and safety.

GLOUCESTER Annisquam Harbor Lighthouse White light flashing every 7.5 seconds with red sector. Annisquam Harbor Lighthouse (Annisquam Light) was erected in 1801 to mark the entrance to the Annisquam River at Wigwam Point, a popular Native American summer encampment. The river connected Ipswich Bay to Gloucester Harbor following the construction of the Blynman Canal. Annisquam Light’s wooden frame was replaced with the existing 41-foot brick tower, with a focal plane of 45 feet, in

1897. The lighthouse is maintained by the U.S. Coast Guard and is no longer accessible from the nearby village of Annisquam in Gloucester. Best viewing opportunities are by water or from Wingaersheek Beach.

Eastern Point Lighthouse White light flashing every 5 seconds. Eastern Point Lighthouse was erected on Gloucester’s Eastern Point to mark the harbor entrance in 1832. The current brick tower was built in 1890 and is 36 feet tall with a focal plane of 56 feet. In addition to the light, there is a

large lighthouse station, which continues to serve as housing for the U.S. Coast Guard. One of the station’s more famous occupants was Winslow Homer. The noted artist spent a year living at the light in 1880. Although not open to visitors, the lighthouse presents a wonderful view, especially from the vantage point of the adjacent Dog Bar Breakwater. Visitors are welcome to walk along or fish from the flat granite blocks atop this massive quarter-mile long structure, which has protected Gloucester Harbor from storms since 1904. The Massachusetts Audubon Society maintains a small parking area near the lighthouse and breakwater as part of its Eastern Point Wildlife Sanctuary. Parking is free for members and $10 per car for non-members between Memorial Day and Columbus Day. For more information visit massaudubon.org. CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM


Ten Pound Island Lighthouse Equal interval red light every 6 seconds. This lighthouse is located on Ten Pound Island, in Gloucester Harbor. The light was constructed in 1821 to mark the island and act as a marker for navigating Gloucester’s inner harbor. Rebuilt in 1881 from cast iron with brick lining, the tower is 30 feet tall with a focal point of 56 feet. Visible from many locations along Gloucester’s waterfront, tiny Ten Pound Island proudly houses America’s first Coast Guard station. The light was restored and relighted through the efforts of the Lighthouse Preservation Society. For more information visit lighthousepreservation.org.

foot granite towers (with a focal point of 166 feet above sea level) seen today replaced the original lights in 1861. The two towers, North and South, were constructed and placed so that when a ship puts sights on both towers, they point to true north, allowing sailors

to check and adjust their compasses. The Thacher Island Association provides launch service from T-Wharf in Rockport Harbor to the island during the summer months, with advance reservations. For more information visit thacherisland.org.

ROCKPORT Straitsmouth Island Lighthouse (Straitsmouth Light) was built in 1835 to mark the entrance to nearby Rockport Harbor. The present brick lighthouse was built in 1896 with a height of 37 feet and a focal plane of 46 feet above sea level. The relatively small lighthouse is maintained by the U.S. Coast Guard, but is owned by the Town of Rockport including the 1.8 acres upon which it sits. The rest of the 31-acre island is owned by the Massachusetts Audubon Society as a bird sanctuary. For more information visit thacherisland.org.

The South tower has a red light flashing five times at 20-second intervals. The North tower has an amber steady light which is maintained by the Thacher Island Association as a “courtesy” light memorial to mariners who have passed. Also known as Cape Ann Light Station, the Twin Lights are the only fully operational multiple lights on the coasts of the United States. The original 45foot towers were constructed and lit in 1771 making them among the oldest of America’s lighthouses. The stout 124CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM
