1946A “Regarding Art” column in the Boston Sunday Herald on July 14, 1947, was published by Lawrence Dame titled “Rockport in Ferment”.Arts and Culture, Art

The column touched upon the sense of involvement and excitement that artists must have relished. In the evenings, according to Gloucester resident Bob Matz, artists gathered at his house, eating, drinking, and arguing. The Matz home was a regular hangout for many, with or without their wives, and the dinners were part of the vibrant atmosphere, vibrant enough that ARTNEWS was going to Cape Ann to review shows.
