Trident Gallery, Matt Swift Owner/Director, Gloucester, MA
This is a very interesting time for the arts in Gloucester. The much anticipated opening on August 30th, 2013 of the Trident Gallery on Main Street under the directorship/ownership of Matthew Swift is another new chapter in the city’s history in the arts. The Cape Ann Museum and the Cultural Center on Rocky Neck are also part of this exciting time and are exhibiting living artists. The Fishing Industry and the Arts have made this gritty town authentic and distinct from others on the east coast. For a long time Gloucester’s art history (1850-1950) has publicized the importance of this place in the art of its past. The names are legendary: Hopper, Homer, Bernstein, Avery. Trident Gallery will be a showcase for art that is happening here and now. Some of the names of painters in The Inaugural Exhibition are Erony, Mueller and Sullivan. I am honored to be among them.
