Eventually more and more artists were drawn to the building. It was a loosely knit association of diverse artists that has come to be known as the 4th Floor Artists. The name coming from the fact that the artists were all on

Congrats Mary!

Eeeee!!!!! I had won first place at The National show at the Cape Cod Art Center in Barnstable and at the end of the show I found out that I was awarded the Popular prize so my work was able to be on display for an additional month! I'm beyond thrilled and very thankful for everyone who stopped in to see the show.
I was asked to answer a few questions for their news letter. I don't normally put too much out there about myself. I hope I don't sound too corny.
This painting is still available. If you're interested please dm me.

Our Story

The 4th floor artists is a vital and growing artists community on the South Shore. 📷

In the early 90s, several artists found a home on the fourth floor of the FL and JC Codman Factory in Rockland, Massachusetts. As time progressed, more and more artists were drawn to the building. The Fourth Floor Artists became a loosely knit association of many and diverse artists. In the mid-90s the group became incorporated as 4th Floor Artists, Inc.

In the fall of 2006 the Codman building was sold and the artists needed to relocate. Many found spaces in the ET Wright building in Rockland, Massachusetts and others found space at the Sandpaper Factory building also in Rockland, Massachusetts. Both buildings were previously factories which were then converted into artist studios and commercial spaces.

The new locations have enabled the artists to stay together as a non- profit, to work independently and to interact within a creative community. The non profit status allows the group to apply for grants to sustain several of their activities. The group is governed by a board of directors.
