Quote from Emile Gruppe
Built in 1858 as the Rocky Neck Schoolhouse, the present day Gruppé Gallery was purchased by Emile A. Gruppé in 1929. The one-room schoolhouse served the residents of Rocky Neck, America’s oldest art colony, for over a generation. Emile Gruppé moved to nearby Rockport in 1925 and purchased the old building overlooking Gloucester Harbor for use as a studio.

Throughout its 75+ year history, the Gruppé Gallery has served as a studio and gallery as well as the Gloucester School of Painting where over 7,000 painters studied. Today, Emile’s son Robert paints here and maintains a gallery for his own work as well as that of his father. We invite you to visit this historic studio and enjoy both the delightful ambience and the fine art available.
