Suzanne Gilbert Lee has been appointed by the board of trustees to the newly created position of executive director of the Rocky Neck Art Colony (RNAC). Gilbert Lee, a native of Gloucester, comes to the art colony following a long history of arts administration, most recently as festivals coordinator for Historic New England headquartered in Boston. As former gallery director at North Shore Arts Association, Gilbert Lee is well suited to handle the growing management needs of the expanding RNAC, that until very recently operated solely as a volunteer-run organization. The acquisition of the Cultural Center building on Wonson Street has created the opportunity for a wide variety of events, programs and rentals in addition to exhibition space requiring hands-on management.

Gilbert Lee is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts-Amherst with a BA in journalism and a graduate certificate in theology from Weston Jesuit School of Theology.

The Cultural Center at Rocky Neck is home office of the RNAC, the official Welcome Center for Gloucester’s Rocky Neck Cultural District and hosts exhibitions, workshops, meetings, lectures and cultural events of all kinds. The Cultural Center is open on Thursday-Sunday, 12:00-4:00 PM from September to May or by appointment. Please phone 978 515-7004.

The Center accommodates 60 to 100 people and is fully handicapped accessible. For information about renting the facility for a meeting, theatrical or musical performance, a small wedding or anniversary, both private or for the community, contact rnaccoordinator@gmail.com.

The Rocky Neck Art Colony, a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization nurtures excellence in the arts through exhibitions, workshops, residencies and vibrant cultural events for its members and the public.
