Company founder, Cathy Connor, opened the doors on Market Street for business in the
early Spring of 2005. Formerly she had run a successful gallery/frameshop, Arté Gallery,
in Newburyport's popular Tannery Marketplace.
Her background as an artist and student of art history, lends itself ideally to the task of tasteful design, so necessary in the creation of art, and the many ways to display it.
As the former business grew, a new location was needed. The beautiful and historic Federalist building at 48 Market Street in Newburyport was purchased in 2005.
So began Connor Summers Gallery.
