To our Patrons and Friends - own a piece of history!!! Approximately 70 hand painted slates will be available for purchase via silent auction late spring. Shown left is a mesmerizing painting on an old Paint Factory roofing slate by NSAA Artist Member Donald Doyle . . .


Attention NSAA Artist Members! It Is Not To Late To Participate!
A founder of Ocean Alliance feels that the arts will be instrumental in saving the seas. We agree and want to do our part to help. Therefore, a major June 2016 Art Exhibition of the Sea and Science is being developed in partnership with Ocean Alliance, and North Shore Arts Association.


This proposed fundraising joint venture will benefit restoration efforts to both of our facilities. It includes a sale of paintings created and donated 100% by NSAA Artists on old Paint Factory roofing slates donated by Ocean Alliance. This groundbreaking collaboration between Cape Ann’s artistic and scientific communities, will be a timely and newsworthy opportunity to promote both our organizations and our supporters.


We hope that you will participate in this important fundraising campaign. Please contact the gallery to make arrangements to pick up your slate - only 35 more are available.

When your painted slate is returned to the NSAA in the Spring of 2016, (by June 13th) each artist will be given another slate (of various sizes) in return. You may keep this historic piece of the Paint Factory for your purposes. This is sure to be a newsworthy campaign! Please visit the Ocean Alliance website
