JDG presents contemporary art by established and emerging artists, both national and international. The gallery has a strong interest in artists living and working on Cape Ann, Massachusetts, an area rich in artistic heritage. The superb light and rugged features of its coastline have long been an attraction for artists of international renown, among them Milton Avery, Marsden Hartley, John Marin, Arthur Dove, Edward Hopper, Stuart Davis to name a few. The contemporary work created in this area continues to be robust and innovative. The gallery also has a focus on contemporary Californian artists, and shows a selection of international artists represented by Purdy Hicks Gallery of London UK.

Several months of the year, the gallery donates exhibition space to regional artists through The Lacuna project. Please contact the gallery for information.
