With a world class collection and legacy, its ongoing support of contemporary arts, and robust exhibition schedule the Cape Ann Museum has no problem keeping the experience of art alive and present, and compelling.
It’s where you can come experience something that is not part of everyday life.
Ronda Faloon, Director of the Cape Ann Museum, discusses the museum’s transformation over the past 10 months and gives GMG exclusive access leading up to the grand re-opening. Getting there required long hours and difficult conditions, a 5 million dollar capital campaign and a ten month closure. This stellar collection is shown in even better conditions.
There will be a week of celebratory and special events beginning with the kick-off gala of August 16, 2014, and open to the public Tuesday August 19th. Visit www.capeannmuseum.org for all the details, and sign up for progress updates.

Yay! These paintings are gonna see the light of day!
Look left when you wander down Pleasant St. towards Main because these babies will be at the Hive for the month of July. One big painting in the window and then follow the path to the back gallery to see the rest of the work.
The Hive is not only a place looking to involve our community in the making of art, but also is about to start holding regular art shows. Its honestly one of the loveliest spaces to see art in Gloucester and is about to define itself as a regular and relaxed space to see art.
From our friend Lily at the Gloucester House.
After the success of our Valentine’s themed show, I wanted to invite you to participate in a “sparkling” Sunday event on Sunday, July 20th.
The Gloucester House has been selected as the official North Shore partner of Domaine Chandon’s Limited Edition American Summer sparkling wine series. This California-made, Blanc de Noirs is fabulously tasty and the branding is perfect for our seaside community. Per this partnership, we are hosting an all-day, “Chandon Sunday” event which will highlight the rich roots of Gloucester as America’s oldest seaport and as a constant hub of great American art, creativity, and thought.
The day will start with a Bubbles Brunch from 9am – 1pm, will transition to a display of local art for sale in our Café Seven Seas, and will conclude with an All-American BBQ in the evening. Throughout, American Summer will be featured, with red, white, blue, and bubbly abound.
If you need to be reminded of how lucky we are.

Dog Bark Park Inn: Idaho
Dog Bark Park Inn offers patrons a chance to stay in the belly of a 20-foot tall beagle — literally. The inn was built to resemble this canine species and is a fine example of chainsaw wood art. The Times, a British newspaper, has declared it one of the wackiest of hotels. Although lodging costs $90 a night, it’s free for visits. http://dogbarkparkinn.com/giftshop/
If you attended any of this festival last year, you know how amazing it was. This year promises to be even more so. Don’t miss it.
We all know this area has a ton of music talent, and SOUL REBEL PROJECT is among the best. If you love true Roots Reggae, then you already know these guys well. If you’ve never had the chance to see them live, start kicking yourself now. After you recover, go to SoulRebelProject.com and see where the next big show will be. Ok, I love these guys for many reasons, one being that they are professionals at what they do, and then there’s the fact that they’ve become good friends, and they just keep getting better every year. Today just so happens to be the iTunes album release date for HIGHER PLACE (on VP Records), and the release of their first video KING. I shot and cut this video for the guys from a live show I taped this past spring. We never intended on making any particular video that night, just grabbing some footage, but here you have it. So watch the video, please share the link, then go check out the tracks on iTunes, you will become a fan instantly. Enjoy!!! (remember click the gear at bottom right for 1080hd)
Now head over to iTunes and get some magic!!

Thanks to all who came out for the opening back in September. I had a great time talking to everyone about my Dad’s Artwork and Life. I was surprised to meet his collectors from years ago. Some came from far away to view and purchase a painting. My Dad would’ve been so happy. Thanks again, Paul Jr.

‘From Ships to Shores’: Doryman left fishing to pursue painting
The son of a Gloucester fisherman, the late Paul Francis Frontiero Sr., began fishing with his father at the age of 12.
He did not know then that this would become his way of life for many years. He never finished Gloucester High School because his father was injured while fishing and he had to leave his studies. As a result, he spent many years laboring in jobs at sea.
Frontiero, born in 1925, even worked as a doryman, an avocation that became extinct; with the innovation of the motorized trawler, the dory fishing industry began to wither in the late 1930s. However, he remained in demand on the port’s fishing vessels because of his skills as an engineer and cook.

Better Late Than Never!
I received an email a few weeks ago from a 10 year old boy who when he was nine years old at the time he found one of my “Art,Rocks!” a Rock that I left at T-Wharf in Rockport on 09/04/2010. I think that was about 9 months ago. I remember leaving it there after having a cup of coffee and watching the Lobstermen get ready for their day. About 5am. I always wonder about the ones I leave that don’t get reported back to the email I leave on them. Currently the last three that I’ve left in the past two weeks that I never gave notice on GMG Have not been reported back. Which is fine. In this world we live in now, maybe people think there is a catch too this thing. Maybe they think I want money for it. Emails like Coopers who found it is payment enough! I will never ask anything for them. An email would be nice but, If I don’t get a response that’s fine too! Mystery and fantasy is what makes life! isn’t it?
Here’s the email from Cooper and Photos of the “Art, Rock!” He found! Who could ask for anything more?!!!! Thanks Cooper!
Am I a little weird? Maybe! :)
Dear mr or mrs frontiero. I picked up one of your pictures of the motif in a parking lot in rockport on 9-4-2010. I am very sorry not to get back to you sooner. I am a 10 year old boy and I’m in fourth grade at st johns in Beverly Massachusetts . I picked it up when i was nine with my aunt and little sister delaney who is now 6. That is my lucky rock because that day I won a contest at bearskin neck country store. You are a beautiful artist. Sincerely , Cooper
