New gallery opens on Main Street

ROCKPORT — A 20-year veteran commercial artist is seeing a dream come to fruition.

”Ever since I first moved to Cape Ann and discovered its natural beauty and love for the arts in this incredible community I’ve dreamed of opening a gallery here,” said Dan DeLouise, the owner of the new DeLouise Studios at 53 Main St.

”We’ve gotten a real nice response from everyone in town,” DeLouise said.

”I’m very excited to have several talented artists on board and absolutely thrilled how well each artist’s work complements the other,” he said. “The gallery boasts a variety of art from sculpture, watercolor, oils, photography and works in precious metals.”

DeLouise, who began his career in New York City, said commercial artwork is becoming ever more digital, and he likes working more traditionally, in oils.

”I’m transitioning, painting in the back of the gallery,” he said, while working on commercial art commissions. He is moving from magazine and high-end commercial work to oil painting and more traditional work. He has done commercial work for Hasbro, Amtrak, Atari, Coca-Cola, Lucas Films, Reebook, Scholastic Books, and the North Shore Music Theatre.

The new gallery represents five artists and DeLouise is adding his own work to the mix. The artists are photographer Jan Anderson; North Shore painter Bill Duke, who works in watercolors and oils; Bruce D. Feldman, who creates sculptures from driftwood; and Nick and Hillary Rezendes, who craft jewelry in precious metals.

DeLouise Studios is open Tuesdays from 1 to 5 p.m., and Wednesdays through Sundays, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information contact DeLouise at 978-282-1540.
