Local Colors began in the fall of 1989 as a group of local rtists who rented a small retail space in Gloucester for the holidays. Those initial couple of months stretched into a few more and eventually that small group of artists decided to make it official. Bylaws were drafted, and Local Colors was born. In time, the adjacent retail space vacated and Local Colors expanded and added more artists. Eventually, the artisans outgrew the space and moved to another location just up the street. That gallery served as home to Local Colors for six years until a fire forced the relocation to its current space at 121 Main Street in downtown Gloucester. We've been at this location for over 10 years. Local Colors has flourished for almost 25 years making it Cape Ann's oldest Artists' Cooperative.
