16 Rocky Neck
There were no galleries in those days and no one ever expected to sell a picture, so you weren’t interested in making it. You were only interested in actually being a good artist….And, of course, you didn’t need as much money. I remember we had a little house in Gloucester. I think we paid $30.00 a month, you know. So you could live the whole summer for about $150.00.” Sally Avery recalling summers in Gloucester in the 1930s
