My style is a blend of realism and impressionism, with a very colorful palette and ‘Cape Ann School’ lighting, expressing happy emotions and quiet moods that are easy to read.”   – Marion Hall

Heidi Caswell Zander One-Artist Show

October 26 – November 7, 2019
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 26th, 2 – 4 PM


An exhibition of oil paintings by Rockport artist Heidi Caswell Zander will open in the Marguerite Pearson Room of the Rockport Art Association & Museum (RAA&M) on Saturday, October 26th with an artist’s reception from 2 – 4 PM. The exhibition will be on view Saturday, October 26 – Thursday, November 7.

Heidi Caswell Zander’s work bares the imprint of growing up immersed in the artist culture of Cape Ann, Massachusetts. As a youth, summer days were spent in adult workshops absorbing the enthusiasm for capturing a cloud on 140 lb. watercolor paper, for being a link between natural wonder observed on location to its impression on a rectangle which would hang on a wall. Rich color and connection to place are the prime elements of her works. Caswell Zander’s signature brushstroke, which is used to convey both the excitement of creating the image as well as the value of making a mark, is retained through process, marks articulated and layered through to the final piece. There is an energy displayed by these brushstrokes. She distills from observation the essence of objects, their radiant colors, vibrancy of life, the subtleties of their relationships, their harmonies and completeness.

Heidi Caswell Zander is owner and sole artist of Tidal Edge Gallery in Rockport which opened in 2005.

A Rhode Island School of Design B.F.A. & M.A.T. graduate and member of the RISD European Honor Society, she has also lived in Rome, Italy, New York, and Berlin, Germany. Heidi is a juried artist member of the Rockport Art Association & Museum, North Shore Art Association and National Association of Women Artists. She is currently Rockport Art Association & Museum’s President. Her paintings are in collections throughout the United States and Europe.

Solo Show: John Fleming
Saturday – October 12, 2019

Opening Reception:
Saturday, October 12, 2:00 – 4:00 PM



An exhibition of sculpture and drawings by Rockport artist John Fleming will open in the Marguerite Pearson Room of the Rockport Art Association & Museum (RAA&M) on Saturday, October 12th with an artist’s reception from 2 – 4 PM. The exhibition will be on view Saturday, October 12 – Thursday, October 24.

As a member of the Rockport Art Association & Museum, Fleming has won numerous awards for excellence in sculpture and graphics, including the Marguerite Pearson Gold Medal for best in show.  A graduate of the Pratt Institute in New York City, Mr. Fleming’s art has taken many forms: commercial art, advertising, graphic design, illustration, art direction, and jewelry design and manufacturing.   The works he will be featuring in this solo show are drawn from Fleming’s decision to use nature’s seemingly random way of creation and “see what happens.”  As Fleming himself states:

“Each piece has its story.  Some hopeful of what they will become.  Some comical.  One, in particular, tragic and flawed knowing that it’s probably the last of its evolving kind.  All of them having no sense of why they exist.”

Jane Deering Gallery presents First Violin: An Octave of Prints by artist Patty Rosenblatt.

An Opening Reception will be held with the artist on Saturday, October 12th from 4:00-6:00pm. The series of eight images grew out of a commission from the Longwood Symphony Orchestra to make a sculptural piece using an unfinished violin. Inspired by a relished theory — which posits that clay is the substance from which all life on earth first sprang — Rosenblatt decided to submerge the violin in a well of wet clay and allow the complexity of time to alter the submerged instrument. The resulting series of prints capture the various stages of transformation. The gallery is located at 19 Pleasant Street, Gloucester MA, next to the Cape Ann Museum. Gallery hours: Friday/Saturday/Sunday from 1:00-5:00pm and by appointment at

Patty Rosenblatt studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the University of the Arts, Philadelphia. She earned a BA from Goucher College and and MA from Boston College. In 2007 she was awarded a Joan Mitchell Foundation Scholarship by the Santa Fe Art Institute. Currently, she is an Advisor to Manship Artists Residency and Studios (MARS), Gloucester MA; and served from 1999-2013 on the Advisory Board of the Aidekman Art Gallery, Tufts University. Rosenblatt has exhibited widely throughout the northeast region. Her work is in numerous public and private collections. The artist maintains a studio on Cape Ann.

This Weekend in the Arts 10/6-9/2019

SATURDAY, October 5 – Artist’s Reception at GLADSTONE 

Cove Glow, 2018, oil on canvas, 9” x 12 – Rockport, MA
GLADSTONE fine jewelry and fine art gallery is pleased to be showcasing the work of Zufar Bikbov, an acclaimed plein air painter, in conjunction with the upcoming Cape Ann Plein Air Competition and Festival in October. The exhibition opened on August 20 and will be on view through October 12.


Zufar Bikbov is passionate about oil painting and the dynamic nature of the plein air art form. He has been traveling and painting landscapes throughout the United States for over a decade, and is the recipient of multiple prestigious plein air awards at national competitions of juried artists.
A native of Russia, Zufar was influenced by his father’s unrealized dream to become a professional artist in Stalin era post WWII Soviet Union. Zufar trained from the age of nine at Zelenodolsk Youth Art School in Kazan in the Russian realist tradition. He embraces experimentation in his artwork and today his landscape painting style exhibits elements of both realism and impressionism.
As a young adult, Bikbov’s desire to help others led him to embark on a career in medicine. During his years in medical school and residency, art remained an important constant in his life. He was honored to participate in the 2002 exhibit, Doctors Paint, at the State Museum of Fine Arts in Kazan, Russia.  There he made a connection which ultimately brought him to Yale to further his medical studies. He relocated to the United States in 2004 and continued to work in the medical field through 2016, painting and participating in plein air competitions all the while. Zufar became a full-time artist and art teacher in 2017.
Zufar’s work is represented in private collections throughout the United States – from New England to California – as well as the UK, Spain, and of course, Russia. While he continues to avidly explore the American landscape, Zufar teaches painting in studio and online at the project.
This is Zufar’s first exhibition at GLADSTONE and the second year he will be competing in Cape Ann Plein Air, October 6 – 14. He was the recipient of the Second Place Award at Cape Ann Plein Air 2018.
The gallery is located at 36 ½ Union Street. Hours are 11-6, Tuesday – Saturday.

Andrew Anderson-Bell – “Layers of Pastel” One-Artist Show

September 29 – October 11, 2018

Opening Reception: Saturday, September 28, 2:00 – 4:00 PM



This slideshow requires JavaScript.

An exhibition of representational landscape paintings in the medium of pastel by Ipswich artist Andrew Andersson-Bell will open in the Marguerite Pearson Room of the Rockport Art Association & Museum (RAA&M) on Saturday, September 28th with an artist’s reception from 2 – 4 PM. The exhibition will be on view Saturday, September 28 – Thursday, October 10.

Native to the New England area, Andrew Anderson-Bell is a representational landscape artist painting in the medium of pastel. A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, Andrew initially pursued graphic design and photography. While these remain passions to this day, his interest in painting in pastel was sparked by viewing a pastel exhibition he saw 20 years ago. The immediacy of the medium, the vibrancy of the colors and the diversity of mark making inspired him to pursue a career in pastel painting. Where Andrew lives keeps him in daily contact with the great outdoors, his leading source for artistic inspiration. His paintings offer the viewer the indulgence of a meditative space to contemplate the grandeur of nature and reinforce the notion that even the most solitary and tranquil moments have significance.

Please check out Andrew’s website: for further information about this dynamic artist.
