I think you talked to my wife, Diana, about the benefit concert for the Open Door on Sunday. Details:
There is a free praise concert and food drive and for the Open Door Food Pantry on Sunday, September 15, at 5:30 PM at the Stage Fort Park Gazebo. The concert will feature the praise band Mixed Bag of Nuts (picture attached). Folks are encouraged to bring protein (canned peanut butter, tuna, or chicken), or healthy snacks for kids’ lunches.
Feel free to call or email for more information.
I’m looking for local storytellers to share their Chicken Stories this Thursday the 12th at 7:30 at the Gloucester Writers Center. The deal is that folks come in and sign up to tell a 5 minute true story that is told not read. We also love having people who just come to listen, which is part of the fun! We have a great lineup, too.
All the best,

Hi! I am having a show of my paintings opening tomorrow, September 11, from 5:30pm-7:00pm at Alchemy Restaurant, 3 Duncan St., in Gloucester. The show continues through October 7. I have painted in two series. One is inspired by Rebecca Siswick Graham, a local fellow artist and friend, who introduced me to the opening of the Ocean Alliance at the Paint factory. This re-kindled my love of all creatures of the sea, big and small and was the impetus to create an Aquatic Series as part of this show.
The other series in the show focuses on the wonderful Omo River Peoples of Southern Ethiopia who hand paint their bodies with different colored clays and adorn with flowers and plants. I feel the origin of all art forms comes from practices like these. Our ancestors did this and today as we apply makeup, prune ourselves and choose our clothes, we simulate what was once an organic process. This organic art lives on today in the Omo communities in Africa, where the cradle of humanity began.
Hope you all can swing by some time. Best wishes. Ramani
