Founded in 1921 as an artist cooperative and social gathering place for artists and art lovers, the RAA is one of the oldest and most active art organizations in the country. In 1929, the Rockport Art Association found its permanent home at the historic Old Tavern building, 12 Main Street, Rockport, Massachusetts. It now encompasses three buildings, with over 3,000 square feet of beautiful galleries and teaching facilities. Its mission is to promote the art of Cape Ann, past and present, through exhibitions and education. It also regularly exhibits its impressive museum collection, and has published four books on Cape Ann artists. The Association currently includes approximately 250 juried artist and photography members, and over 800 contributing members. 

The Rockport Art Association is located at 12 Main Street, Rockport, MA 01966. For hours and admission fees please call the Rockport Art Association or see the Association's website.
