Rockport / Gloucester

While American Impressionism flourished on Cape Ann, artists created a camaraderie in which both the traditional and modern painter could prosper. In turn, the centuries-old slystem of workshop and atelier survived. To this day, many artists teach in their studios and out-of-doors for there is no "lonely garret" syndrome on the island. Artists are a vital part of the fabric of life and commerce in Gloucester and Rockport, and they have proven to be invaluable historians. They tell and have told the story of their own times and the stories of New England for more than a hundred years. - rockportartassn.org

Hudson River

The Hudson River School was a group of painters, who between 1820s and the late nineteenth century, established the first true tradition of landscape painting in the United States. Their paintings included scenes of the Hudson River Valley and the adjoining mountains of New York and Vermont, as well as far flung sights around the world. Influenced by European romantic landscape painting, Hudson River School painters created artworks showing meticulously rendered details and an almost religious reverence for the magnificence of the American wilderness. Through their works, the Hudson River School artists set about the task of re-creating the unique beauty of the American landscape for the public. - albanyinstitute.org
