Seacoast Nursing Home Opening Reception

seacoast nursing home opening

These are some shots taken by Charlie Carroll at the Seacoast Nursing Home reception yesterday.  This is a wonderful exhibit of 30 canvas giclee photos of local scenes donated by a number of Cape Ann photographers, and printed by Cape Ann Giclee, to be hung permanently in the Alzheimer’s Wing at Seacoast Nursing Home.  Many of the residents and visitors came to the opening and really enjoyed the work.

For me, the highlight of the event was meeting Agnus MacQuade, 99 years young, who will turn 100 in January 2015.  She was amazingly sharp and a pleasure to talk to.  She was a student teacher at Lane School for a number of years and then taught at Salem State.  She said she loves being at Seacoast Nursing Home.

Magnolia Historical Society Spring Art Show poster_spring2

After that, there are only 21 more days until the Spring Art Show at the Magnolia Historical Society.  From the icy grip of winter emerges a fresh new body of work by some of your favorite Cape Ann artists.  While it may not be the first Art Show of Spring 2014, it is lining up to the best.  Mark your calendars now, and pray we won’t have snow.

These are a few shots of the St. Valentine’s Art Show at the Gloucester House taken by Beth Williams.  If you have a chance, do stop by and check it out.  There is a great array of beautiful, affordable, unique cards and gift items by area artists.  The Gloucester House (especially Lily Linquata for organizing so well and being so helpful) has been very generous to organize this show in their lovely function room at no charge to the artists.  The show runs Friday and Saturday from 11:30am to 8:00pm and Sunday from 9:30am to 4:00pm.  A nice reason to stop into the Gloucester House for a bowl of chowda or a seafood pizza and a beer or glass of wine, and check out some great Valentine’s Day gift ideas.

Flatrocks Gallery – a Little Out of the Way but Well Worth the Trip

flatrocks translucence postcard

The opening of Translucence at Flatrocks Gallery Friday night was extremely well attended, but not at all surprising for such an excellent show and gallery space.  For us on this side of Cape Ann, it may seem a little out of the way, but it is well worth the trip over to Lanesville to see it.  Gloucester’s art scene is just killing it!

Don’t Miss Momentum Gallery, only in Gloucester for a Short Time!

  • The talented Bailey Berry, a student at Gordon College, has put together a pop-up gallery for the next few weeks. The show is curated by Bailey and is comprised entirely of works from fellow students in area colleges Endicott, Montserrat & Gordon. Originally designed to be part of an initiative in Peabody to enliven empty storefronts downtown by placing pop-up galleries and other temporary installations, Bailey had to look for alternatives for the gallery after Peabody pulled the plug on the project. She searched for a home for the Momentum Gallery and found the ideal partner in The Hive here in Gloucester. Peabody’s loss is our gain, as the project features work in a variety of media by young artists offering a fresh perspective.
    The details:
    • The show runs opens this weekend, May 25th, at 6 o’clock at The Hive on Pleasant Street. Some great music is lined up and all this music and art and energy can be experienced for just $5. Or five bux, as they say at The Hive because they are so awesome they just spell stuff phonetically.
    • Momentum Gallery will be open 10 to 5, Monday through Friday, and Saturdays by appointment through June 15th. If you would like to partner with Momentum Gallery and donate your services for either the show’s run and or closing party, contact Bailey at momentumpeabody@gmail.com. And for more information on the show itself, the gallery’s partners and blog, please check out the website: www.momentumgallery.weebly.com

Two Buddies Show Photos by Anthony Marks

Thank you so much to everyone that came out to support EJ and my show at Alchemy.  Thank you Anna and James Eves from Cape Ann Giclee for their quick turnaround and super high quality work creating my photos into canvas wraps (you don’t have to be a professional photographer to visit James and Anna at 20 Maplewood Ave and have a canvas wrap of your work created) 

I’m really proud of the work.  Really proud of it.

Unfortunately we had a boat that stayed out lobstering past the time that the show ran so I could only manage to stop in to say hi in between offloading lobster boats and didn’t get out of work til after the show was over.  For the brief time I could stop in it was great to see many of our FOB’s and people from the Gloucester Education Fund who 10% of the proceeds of the sale of our work at Alchemy will go to.

if anyone else has photos from our opening could you send them in to goodmorninggloucester@yahoo.com I know Charlie Carroll was snapping away and Jason Grow was taking photos as well.  I’d love to see what I missed.
