The Rockport Center for the Arts (RCA) has opened ticket sales for the 56th annual Rockport Art Festival, presented by Salemi Ace Hardware. 

The festival was launched in 1969 and now sees approximately 10,000 attendees and hosts 120 artists from across the U.S. Additionally, since 1993, the festival has named a Master Artist, whose work is featured in a solo show and who provides an original artwork to the annual Art Auction Gala, which takes place the night before the festival begins. The 2024 Master Artist is Patsy Lindamood, a Huntsville-based creative who works in watercolor pencil, graphite, and soft pastels.
