Thanks to a grant from the Rockport CPC, we are now able to provide handicap accessibility to our Hibbard & Maddocks Galleries, our tired courtyard staircase is being replaced, and parts of the Hibbard and Maddocks gallery buildings are receiving some much needed siding.   Click here to see photos of the progress.

Front Desk Volunteers Needed

Are you a people person? Do you love art, Rockport, and helping visitors?  Then give us a call!  We are looking for reliable volunteers who can sit at our front desk, answer the phone, greet and assist visitors, and process sales.

Volunteers would cover at least one 4 hour shift (10am – 1pm, or, 1pm – 5pm) on a weekly basis.  If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, please email us at, or call us at 978-546-6604, and we’ll have our Volunteer Coordinator get in touch with you.
