Announcement of RAA&M Re-opening

Dear Members and Friends of the RAA&M:

As the Executive Director of your art association & museum, it is my distinct pleasure to announce that as of July 1st, 2020, the RAA&M will be OPEN FOR BUSINESS! At a time when too many of our fellow art associations are shuttered, we here at the RAA&M have been endeavoring to serve you through a host of initiatives. From on-line galleries and on-line art courses, to outdoor workshops and hanging new shows like Welcome Back! (our first summer Exhibiting Members show, which opens on July 1st) we are trying our best to present artwork to the public and generate the sales so necessary for artists to make their living.

Admittedly, it hasn’t been easy. On Wednesday, June 17 we conducted what is commonly called a “soft opening” of our Tavern Building, and through this experiment we have discovered that staff are dedicating one out of every four minutes of their workday just to properly sanitizing the facility. As well, we have been manning the front desk and hanging shows on top of performing our daily activities. But through it all we have found our rhythm, and with an admixture of hard work and humor find ourselves ready and able to serve you and the Cape Ann community as a whole.

In closing, we thank you profusely for your patronage, your patience, and for your holding faith in us through these challenging times. We aren’t out of the woods yet. Not by a longshot. But together, we shall make certain that the arts continue to have a home here on Cape Ann, long after this pandemic-business is but a distant memory.

Trusting that this finds you happy and HEALTHY,

James A. Craig
Executive Director
Rockport Art Association & Museum
