More Buoys To Paint During The Winter Carnival Block Party! Saturday Dec 18th

Art Haven Director Dawn Gadow Writes-

Thanks so much to everyone who came out to paint buoys at Art Haven last weekend! We had a record number of buoys painted and wanted to make sure to say a huge thanks to Ben’s Paint, Rose’s Marine, Winchester Fishing, Ace Hardware, Building Center, and everyone who came out to help build the lobster trap tree this year! If you haven’t gotten to see it all lit up yet, you better check it out!
Also, since we ran out of buoys last weekend, we’ve got another buoy painting opportunity this Saturday during the Winter Carnival Block Party! We picked up a few more buoys and those who didn’t get a chance last weekend are welcome to come Saturday between 5 and 7 to paint their own unique ornament for this year’s tree. We do still have a limited number, though, so let us know if you’re definitely coming down to paint one and we’ll be sure to have one for you. You can email us at arthaveninfo@gmail.com or call 978.283.3888.
Thanks again to everyone who was a part of this year’s tree (and is going to be this weekend)! Gloucester’s lobster trap tree is clearly the best around – when else is this much of the community involved in one masterpiece?!?
Happy Holidays from Art Haven!
Dawn

Be A Part of The Gloucester Lobster Trap Tree- Buoy Painting At Art Haven Dec 10th and 11th

What sets our lobster trap tree apart from the inferior sterile ones from Maine?  Well it’s the kids of course!  Our children get to paint buoys at Art Haven with their names or designs or Scenes on them to adorn the tree.

Our tree isn’t just tossed together by a bunch of lobstermen who should be out hauling traps.  Our tree is a true community project in which everyone young and old can adorn and take pride in.   Snoop Maddie Mad and The Bean had a ball last year painting their buoys at Art Haven as part of the Middle street Walk day activities.  You can too!

I’ll go as far as to say that you are a negligent parent if you don’t bring your child down to Art Haven on either the 10th or 11th so they can paint a buoy and be part of a Great Gloucester Tradition!!!  Winking smile

Last year’s Buoy Auction was a blast.  I can’t wait for it this year.

Buoy Painting At Art Haven pics By Thom Falzorano

I can’t even believe how many events went down yesterday.  How much fun and community involvement and volunteerism went into making it such an incredible day for Gloucester folks to enjoy.

There is so much to cover between the start of the day at City Hall with the Docksiders, Gingerbread House Competition, and hanging out with the Disney Characters.

Then off to Art Haven for Buoy Painting and Ice Sculpting.

Then to watch the star and buoys get placed upon the lobster trap tree.

Quick lunch at Espresso ($7.95 Chicken Marsala rocked).

Hop over to the Cape Ann Museum for a children’s Christmas caroling concert with FOB Mikayla Ciolino.

Then back to City Hall for Christmas play.

To Pleasant St Tea and Coffee Co for killer hot chocolate and a fatastic artisan show.

A quick stroll down Main St to catch up with Janice Lufkin Shea and then back to the homestead.

If you don’t see your pic today  it’s only because there is so much content we will be releasing it over the next few days.  Everything is getting posted though- fear not.
