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.

Cape Ann Artists & Photographers Group

Hi Everyone,

Happy Spring!

Our next Cape Ann Painter and Photographer Group will meet on Friday, May 2,  from 9-10:30 AM at Cape Ann Giclee on 20 Maplewood Avenue in Gloucester. Parking is on the far right of Shaw’s Market.

James Eves , who owns Cape Ann Giclee with his wife Anna, will demonstrate Studio Photography and Lighting. It should be a very interesting program.

Thank you James and Anna for this upcoming program and for offering your space for our meetings!

We will also be discussing ideas for future programs and social events.

The group was founded almost three years ago with the aim to give Cape Ann Artists and Photographers an opportunity to meet each other, offer support, share ideas and ongoing work, and have a good time.

Hope to see you there. All are welcome.

James Eves Creating “Photos from Memory” with Felicia

Cape Ann Giclee’s James Eves is creating photos from Felicia’s childhood memories for her forthcoming cookbook. Using a current photo of an updated house, the ultra-talented James has removed the contemporary fencing and younger trees and instead, he has replaced with the previous owner’s original lovely shrub hedge, flower plantings, and cheery shutters.

Whatever your heart desires–photo retouching, photo recreating, fine art photo printing, and painting reproduction needs–James Eves is THE MAN!

How Exactly is Monsanto’s Roundup Ravaging the Monarch Butterfly Population?

Monarch Butterfiles Female left Male right Milkweed ©Kim Smith 2012The above photo of a male (right) and female (left) Monarch Butterflies on Marsh Milkweed is part of the GMG/Cape Ann Giclee show opening tonight.

I am often asked the following question at my butterfly and pollinator garden design lectures. How exactly are Monsanto’s products ravaging the Monarch Butterfly population?

First, it is important to understand that all butterfly caterpillars rely on plant foods specific to each species of butterfly. For example, Monarch caterpillars only eat members of the milkweed family, Black Swallowtail caterpillars eat plants in the carrot family, and Heliconian butterflies eat plants in the passionflower family. Some caterpillars, like the larvae of the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail eat plants from a wide range of plant families. That being said, it is worth repeating that Monarch caterpillars only survive on members of the milkweed family.

Imagine a farm with row upon row of corn. Growing amongst and around the edges of the cornfields are wildflowers of all sorts, including milkweed. The wildflowers draw to the fields myriad pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and birds.

Monsanto has genetically modified the seed of corn and soybeans so that it will withstand extremely heavy doses of its herbicide, called Roundup. Monsanto’s corn and soybean seed is actually called Roundup Ready. Roundup Ready plants can withstand massive doses of the herbicide Roundup, but the milkweed and other wildflowers growing in the corn and soybean fields cannot.

Each year massive amounts of Roundup are sprayed on the corn and soybean fields, killing everything in sight, except the Roundup Ready corn and soybean. Additionally, Monsanto’s Roundup contains the active ingredient glyphosate, which has been tied to more health and environmental problems than you can possibly imagine.

Now imagine you are a Monarch Butterfly, having flown hundreds of miles northward towards breeding grounds of milkweed. But there is no milkweed to deposit your eggs. The circle in the chain of life is broken.

Since the use of genetically modified Roundup Ready began, milkweed has disappeared from over 100 million acres of row crops, or a roughly 58 percent decrease. Milkweed is not only the Monarch caterpillar host (or food) plant, the nectar-rich florets provide nourishment for hundreds of species of bees and other Lepidoptera.

The Monarch Butterfly migration is one of the great migrations of the world. Climate change and the loss of habitat are also factors in the decrease of butterflies. The Mexican government and the people of Mexico have enacted policies to help protect from logging the remaining oyamel fur trees in the Monarchs winter habitat.

There are several steps that we in the United States can undertake. 1) Avoid as much as possible genetically modified food, especially corn and soybean products. 2) If you own shares of Monsanto stock, get rid of it (Monsanto also developed Agent Orange). Thirdly, we need to start a national movement to cultivate milkweed and to create awareness about the important role wildflowers play in our ecosystem.

Calling Everyone: Plant Milkweed! No matter how small or large your garden, give a spot over to milkweed and watch your garden come to life!

Cape Ann Giclée

prints 
Giclée, great quality and good service right here in Gloucester MA.
There have definitely never been so many options before when it comes to finding a good printshop. When I started making prints it was at the New England school of Photography using film. Box after box of paper and hours in the dark room. Now with digital its pick your best shots and print. I had stuck with my film shop after they went digital and was happy with what I was getting. However as different employees who knew certain kinds of jobs well started to change it was time to find a new printshop.

People are happy to tell about good experiences they’ve had with printshops so I’m happy to say that one of the best printshop I have found in New England is right here in Gloucester MA.

Cape Ann Giclée Printing. I needed prints made for client that wanted them for his office & for the Rockport Art Associations shows so it was time to roll the dice and try a new printer? Do I change my loyalties after 30 years of using the same printer? Do I flip-flop from printer to printer? Yes and no.

Time to change from my old printer and no more flip-flopping. Printing is an art combined with craftsmanship. Many printers own great equipment, but that doesn’t mean they know how to run it. The team at Cape Ann Giclée not only knows both so well it sets them apart from the others I have used in the past. Where do my loyalties lay now? Giclée, great quality and good service right here in Gloucester MA.

Why Having Your Digital Images Reproduced At Cape Ann Giclee Is A No-Brainer

image

I have been so excited the past few days.  The reason is when as an artist you feel proud of the work you are producing it’s just a great feeling.  I knew the images I selected for our show at Alchemy Thursday night were some of my favorites but when James printed them and I saw the colors he was able to reproduce with his 11 color machine it took my excitement t a whole new level.

I’m thrilled, just thrilled to be working with James and Anna Eves at Cape Ann Giclee.

hope to see all our friends at the opening Thursday night from 5:30-7:30 at Alchemy for EJ and My “Two Buddies” Show.

Cape Ann Giclée

In preparation for the Good Morning Gloucester group photography show at Passports Restaurant (running now through December), I was hoping to work with a fine art printer because I have never been very satisfied with the results from my own limited experience in printing. I recalled having seen a video about Cape Ann Gicléee, created by Alicia for Good Morning Gloucester back in July, and had mentally filed the information for future reference. I first called Anna Eves and she was so helpful over the phone I knew I was heading to the right place.

James Eves was simply fantastic. His background is in fine art, which is apparent in the artistry he brings to his own digital art work. He is an absolute whiz in post production photography techniques and extremely generous with his time.

James Eves

Stop in and see James and Anna’s studio located at 20 Maplewood Avenue, Gloucester. Cape Ann Giclée is a fabulous resource for all your photography printing and fine art reproduction needs.

James’s Digital Seascape ~ Created entirely on his computer, Not a brush painting.

From Cape Ann Giclée’s website: What is a “Giclée”? A giclee (pronounced – jee-clay) is a fancy term for a print made by a fine art inkjet printer, fine art printers have 6 or more ink colors (ours have 11), use archival inks and the prints are printed on museum quality archival papers and canvas. We use the term “Giclée” to differentiate it from a print made by a commercial printer that does meet the criteria above, like the kind of printers used to make business cards or brochures, those kinds of printers will not produce a “Giclée”. A giclee printer will reliably reproduce color consistently no matter how many prints you print because the print is produced from a digital file that does not degrade over time or use.

Cape Ann Giclee

With years of experience in printing and finally moving their business out of their basement they have a new shop at 20 Maplewood Ave. in Gloucester. Printing on their Epson printer, with 12 inks,  gives them lots of color flexibility. They use many different papers to print on including eco-friendly bamboo and metallic photo paper and are open to experimenting on different mediums with artists. They offer competitive pricing with on demand printing options.  So, you don’t have to ship out your artwork or order 100s of prints. You can even 1 at a time for a customer and have it shipped to your customer’s home.

Artist, Sefan Mierz is one of their very happy customers! He was so happy with his giclee order and amazed by how well the colors matched the original oil.
