1917Oscar Anderson (1873-1953) opened his second Rocky Neck studio and gallery and established the Gallery-on-the-Wharf annual exhibitions.Arts and Culture, Art

The loft at 73 Rocky Neck Avenue was first used as a space for making art by Anderson. In response to the invitation-only Gallery-on-the-Moors by wealthy art patrons William and Emmeline Atwood, Anderson converted his studio to show and sell work of his own and of other local artists. Gallery-on-the-Wharf adhered to the “No Jury—No Prizes” ethos.
