GMG In Germany

Joey,

For your gallery of places your sticker has been — we’d be happy for you to post this photo of Theo and me showing off the GMG sticker in front of our small vacation house over the past holidays in Oppenheim am Rhein in the Rheinland-Pflaz state of Germany!

Cheers,

Jerry Oppenheim and Theo MacGregor

Unique Opportunity for Artists

Goetemann Residency:  a unique opportunity for artists in Gloucester, MA
Be part of the next generation of  21st century artists to build on the foundations set by Edward Hopper, Milton Avery, Nel Blaine, Winslow Homer, and many others. 
 
We are currently accepting applications for the 2012 Goetemann Artist in Residency Program at the Rocky Neck Art Colony (www.Rockyneckartcolony.org). Three visual artists will be selected to be in residence for three one month residencies during the summer season from May to October of 2012.
 
Rocky Neck sits like a jewel in the large fishing harbor of Gloucester, MA. With rafted fishing vessels sitting below the stacked houses of surrounding hills, it has provided the visual drama and complex beauty to draw America’s greatest artists over the last 150 years to the oldest working art colony in the United States. Residents accepted will receive a prime live-work studio both private and on a wharf right in the midst of it all.
 
Choices for subject matter are endless.  Interpretive possibilities abound.  We encourage applications from artists interested in the naturalistic phenomena of this place as well as from those on the cutting edge of contemporary thought and exploration. 

 

Our Paul Frontiero’s dad has passed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his entire family

GLOUCESTER — Paul Francis Frontiero, Sr., 86, of Gloucester, passed away on Friday morning, January 13, 2012, at the Addison Gilbert Hospital.

Born in Boston on May 3, 1925, he was the son of the late Joseph and Anna (Lovasco) Frontiero. During World War II, he had served in the U.S. Navy from 1943 to 1946 as a Seaman 1st Class and Boatcoxswain.

Paul was very proud of his service and had fought in numerous campaigns including landing Marines in the first wave of the invasion of Japan where prisoners from six nations were waiting for them on the docks. For his service he was awarded the American, Asiatic and Pacific medals, Philippine Invasion and Liberation medal, Japan Occupation and Victory medal with three Battle Stars.

As a young man, Paul began fishing with his father and had worked on many boats as an engineer, cook and doryman. He later gave up fishing to raise his three boys and began his career as an artist. Paul was an accomplished artist and his works hang in many private collections around the world.

Peter also writes-

Regarding the chart, I can provide a chart like that starting with any Ciaramitaro (and their spouses) born in Terrasini before 1911 for which there is a baptism record published. So, if someone has an ancestor other than the Carlo show, I can send a chart.

you might also want to mention, most of the documents for Terrasini (and other nearby towns) are now online
