Artist Statement
Melissa Cox, resident and local freelance photographer of our wonderful city of Gloucester, has been taking pictures since high school and recently found her love of nautical, architecture and landscape photography. She loves being out on the water taking pictures of ships, whales and sunsets.  When she’s not at work, traveling, or being one of our city councilors, you can usually find her taking pictures of our photogenic Cape Ann.  

Melissa was recently accepted into the Rockport Art Association as well as a member of the Newburyport Art Association and Rocky Neck Cultural Center. Her work can be found at Arts Abound in Magnolia, Gallery 53 on Rocky Neck and at Maritime Gloucester. Her picture “Waiting to Row” was selected for the cover on Discover Gloucester’s guide book for the 2020 season! 

You can connect with her on Facebook and Instagram (Melissa Cox Photography) or check out her gallery collection on her website, www.MelissaCoxPhotography.com
