The opening reception for Rocky Neck: An Artistic Celebration, by the Rocky Neck oil painter Stephen Lapierre, will open this weekend, noon to 8 p.m. Saturday, May 13, at the artist's studio on Rocky Neck in Gloucester.

The one-man show includes over 100 original plein-air oil paintings capturing the architecture, gardens, and harbor views of the Neck over the past seven years. 

A preview reception for Rocky Neck neighbors and friends will be held this Friday, May 12, from 4 to 8 PM.

LaPierre’s current show also includes some of the artist’s Key West plein air paintings… created during LaPierre’s six-year residency (2010 – 2016) in our southernmost city.  

The receptions and show are being held at LaPierre’s studio at 75 Rocky Neck Ave, 2nd floor, next door to the recently re-opened Rudder Restaurant.
