Did You Know? (You’re All Invited!)

That I’m having my first coming out party as a Cape Ann artist on Wednesday, April 13th at Alchemy, and I’d love everyone to come?  I am excited about my exhibit at Alchemy, and the opportunity to meet in person some of the people I’ve connected with virtually through Good Morning Gloucester, as well as see again those I’ve had a chance to meet and get to know in person.  In addition to the art opening, I handed off the completed Did You Know book files at 7:00 morning to Barry Pollock at Cricket Press, and he assures me I will have books in hand by the 13th, so it will also be a kickoff and book signing for Did You Know the book.  This is the chance for those of you who have just been hankering to have a signed first edition of Did You Know to get one fresh off the Cricket Press.  In addition to the books, I will also have some matted prints of my work available for sale.  Did you know that during an Alchemy exhibit, 10% of the proceeds of any art sales go to the Gloucester Education Foundation?  During the opening party, 20% of the proceeds of any matted print and Did You Know book sales will go to the GEF, so come out, have fun, give me the chance to meet and see you, help the GEF, and help me start paying for the rest of the printing of the book.  Also, Mark McDonough, does a great thing for artists with his Alchemy of Art exhibits, so show him some love by filling his place to overflowing.  The only thing I am really sad about, is that Joey C., the person I have most to thank for so many of the wonderful things and people I have experienced since moving to Cape Ann, will be away (he’s on vacation again! I really need to become a lobster broker!), so won’t be able to be there.  Hopefully Manny (the driving force behind the Did You Know book being done in the first place) will be and can capture it on video for Joey to see on GMG. 

You saw it first on Good Morning Gloucester!  Have a Good Morning Gloucester (and any where else in the world that you might be right now reading GMG), and a blessed day.  EJ

About E.J.

Artist, researcher, writer, spiritual traveler of this fascinating orb we inhabit, lover of life and all it has to offer. Hi everyone out there in GMG land. My name is Ellen “E.J.” Lefavour (a/k/a “Ejay Khan” – the pseudonym I used during my years as a political activist artist). I moved to Cape Ann in September of 2010, and was thrilled to be invited by Joey to become a daily contributor to Good Morning Gloucester in December of that year. I am a painter, photographer and writer who has lived and worked as an artist for 20 years, since leaving the corporate world in 1990 to pursue my passion. My contributions to GMG will consist of images (either my paintings, photographs, montages or the occasional video) and a little history about the image, called “Did you Know?” I hope to come up with tidbits of information that people don’t already know, or had forgotten they knew. As I am new here, everything is new and fascinating to me, especially the amazing history, so bear with me if I post something that is common knowledge – I’ll eventually come up with something that’s new to you. As an artist, I will also write about the incredible art scene on Cape Ann. Please take a minute to comment on my posts, like them or not, especially if you have corrections or something to add, as that is how I, and all of us, learn. Have a Good Morning Gloucester, and a blessed day.

    Thanks Kim and Sharon! I just feel like one pooped woman in a wake of mass chaos that now needs to be put back into place and organized again.

    Thanks E.J. for your generous support of the Gloucester Education Foundation.
    The Alchemy of Art series is a wonderful series of opportunities for people to get to learn more about the creative spirit on Cape Ann and the efforts of the Gloucester Education Foundation to support programs in the Gloucester Public School District.
    I look forward to meeting you on April 13th.

  9. E.J. says:

    Hi Maggie,
    I look forward to meeting you to, and as for the GEF support built into the Alchemy of Art Series, I think Mark McDonough was brilliant in doing so, and I am happy to increase the percent of support to GEF on book and print sales. GEF is an amazing program that should be replicated across the state. Cape Ann just seems to have it going in the right direction everywhere I look.

    I will let my mom know, maybe she can come. I know it will be a huge success, you are so abundantly talented. GOOD LUCK

    Thanks Debra, wish you could be here, but I look forward to seeing you when you come home to visit in September. Would be great if your mom came.
