Start holiday shopping at crafts show, studio tour

Columbus Day weekend brings two opportunities where art and commerce combine to provide both shopping and insight into the Cape Ann art scene. An added bonus for those attending both events is taking in the fall foliage as they drive around to visit sites.

The events are the 29th annual Annisquam Arts & Crafts Show and the 30th anniversary of the Cape Ann Artisans Tour. Both are free. Many use these events as a way to get started with holiday shopping while benefitting the local economy because most of these goods are made by Cape Ann residents.

Annisquam Arts & Crafts show

The Annisquam Arts & Crafts show will feature an expanded collection of fine arts and crafts over Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 12 and 13, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Annisquam Village Hall at 36 Leonard St. in Gloucester’s Annisquam section.

The exhibitors are: Nancy Adams, Helen Beal, Julia Bishop, Kathy Bucholska, Suzanne Brown, Amanda Cook, Joanne Crawford, Ben Cunningham, Lee Cunningham, Phil Cusumano, Margaret Derby, Leon Doucette, Janet Egan, Dennis Flavin, Rose-Marie Glen, Kerry Gorton, Carl Gustin, Peter Herbert, Andrena Huntsman, Susan Kenna, Bobbi Kovner, Ellen “EJ” Lefavour, Camilla MacFayden, Greg Marchant, Connie Mason, Stephanie Mason, Giovanni Pagnotti, Robin Paine, Daphne Papp, Judith P. Norton, Chris Pullman, Kristin Petty, Linda Steele, Ellie Stevens, Evy Stewart, Ken Tarr, Dona Shea, JP Ware & Elz Spofford, Kirk Williamson and Ann Mechem Ziergiebel.

There will be a silent auction for the oil painting “Crane Beach 1998,” by award-winning artist Dorothy Arnold.

The event benefits the Annisquam Village Church. For more information, call 978-281-4552.
