Since 1922, North Shore Arts Association has served our community and beyond, by fulfilling its mission of promoting the advancement and preservation of the fine arts. This is achieved through exhibitions that encourage the viewing and acquisition of the fine arts, and presenting educational and charitable programs for the benefit and enjoyment of all. We rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support.  Without this assistance we would not be able to carry out our mission.

Our last open season was packed with exhibitions, special events and community collaborations.

Some highlights are:

  • Presented eight member shows
  • Presented eight solo shows
  • Presented seven “Pop-up” Shows
  • Hosted nine receptions
  • Offered ten artist demonstrations, gallery talks and lectures
  • Offered use of our galleries to Gloucester Writers Center, The City of Gloucester, Action Inc., Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce, Open Door, Cape Ann Symphony and Gloucester Stage

All offered for free to the community and the general public!

Your gift helps make all of this possible! Art sales, membership dues and marina income just aren’t enough to cover our expenses.

Your generous donation will help us:

  • Maintain and improve our galleries
  • Continue to provide exhibitions, lectures, and special events free to the public
  • Make a difference in the lives of aspiring artists through education and encouragement
  • Create opportunities for artists and art lovers to meet and interact
  • Preserve and acquire historically significant artwork for the enjoyment of all

We are actively planning further improvements to our galleries for 2021. Plans are in the making to improve access to our upper gallery by replacing our ancient chair lift. We also plan to provide more light upstairs by painting the ceiling and replacing the upper windows in order to allow more natural light into the space. These improvements will greatly enhance our visitors experience!

You make the difference! We hope you will consider donating, as this greatly impacts our success. Know that your gift, no matter the amount, is greatly appreciated.

There are also other ways to support NSAA:

  • Ensure the long-term preservation of NSAA by contributing to our Endowment Trust
  • Include a gift to NSAA as part of your estate planning
  • Plan a business or social event in our galleries
  • Help spread the word by telling your friends and family about the good work of NSAA

We hope to see you in the gallery often!
