Trident Gallery shows beautiful and intelligent contemporary art in all mediums, emphasizing the work of artists continuing Gloucester’s rich legacy as a center for new American Art.
Every five weeks, Trident Gallery presents a new exhibition of contemporary art in a rich context of written commentary and public discussion. Special offerings and works by represented artists are always on display, and clients may explore extensive inventory at the gallery or privately, through both advanced technologies and print materials. Gallery Director Dr. Matthew Swift curates and produces gallery exhibitions, drawing on academic expertise and four generations of involvement in the art world of Cape Ann.
The Trident Live Art Series presents performances by seasoned professionals showing experimental and collaborative work in the intimate salon setting of the gallery. Live Art Series Director Sarah Slifer Swift curates and produces the performances, drawing on two decades of experience in the United States and abroad as a dance artist, choreographer, and producer.
Compelling art, illuminating critical context, and dedicated professionalism distinguish Trident Gallery as a leader of the vital arts scene of Cape Ann and as a singular resource for collectors, corporate clients, and the public.
Trident Gallery is located in a purpose-built space within the elegant Gloucester Safe Deposit and Trust building of 1880 in the heart of historic downtown Gloucester and the Harbortown Cultural District.
