Sinikka Nogelo – Guest Artist at Khan Studio and The Good Morning Gloucester Gallery

Sinikka Nogelo, a Gloucester artist, was a familiar face on Cape Ann Television until her retirement last summer. This year she’s returned to sharing work in her first medium  – paint. Sinikka uses natural elements and personal symbols in the abstract expression of surroundings, thoughts and feelings. The works she will exhibit at Khan Studio and the Good Morning Gloucester Gallery encompass a “year of re-discovery.”
A graduate of Tufts University, Sinikka studied art at the Silvermine Guild in CT; the Museum School, Boston; Rockport Art Association; and Montserrat School of Art in Beverly, MA. She was a founding member of the women artists’ cooperative, Center and Main, located at that Gloucester corner until the mid-1980s. During her years on television she produced many arts specials and interviewed people working in all aspects of the arts.
Sinikka’s exhibit will run from August 19-September 1 with an opening reception on Saturday, August 20th from 5:00-7:30pm at Khan Studio and the Good Morning Gloucester Gallery, 77 Rocky Neck Ave., G3 on Madfish Wharf in the historic Rocky Neck Art Colony.

Sunrise Yesterday

Today’s sunrise was even prettier but I needed to get a full smoker of bluefish so I was busy catching the last one today. Possible secret ingredient to my deviled eggs.

Just moments after the photo was taken I was wrestling a bluefish amongst the barnicles. Bag Balm is a lovely ointment.

Fun Fact: Halifax, Nova Scotia is directly lined up with sunrise today.

Red, Red, Boats

 

Red Boats In The Harbor

Vintage

This is a vintage early 70′s Phillips 3-speed cruiser. 20 inch frame fits roughly 5’2″-5’7. Made in England. Just tuned up and ready to ride, all three gears work well, Sturmey Archer hub was just oiled. Surface rust but nothing structural – mostly on the chainguard and fenders. This would be a awesome city bike to pick your groceries up in or commute to work or college, and I actually have a few handlebar baskets for pretty cheap if that’s your thing. This is a sweet ride. All it needs is like, some flowers and a small kitten with goggles and a scarf in a basket.

See us at the Cape Ann Farmers Market today at Stage Fort Park. 3pm-6:30pm
