Celebrating the Culture of Gloucester at GCA on Saturday

Here’s a great opportunity to see first hand the kind of education going on at Gloucester Community Arts Charter school.  Students get to choose from 7 workshops, from creating and illustrating a story set in Gloucester, to creating one of the species of fish that have contributed to Gloucester’s maritime history, to dissecting a squid, to taking the virtual harbor walk celebrating Gloucester’s people and poetry.  The event is free and open to the public.

The show which was made possible by a seARTS grant and lots of hard work by Abby was a smashing success.  Even though there was an incredible amount of things happening around town there were a ton of people who came to check it out.

Abby is really going places.  The talent she has for boiling down incredible amounts of data into such an engaging and easy to understand handbook is nothing short of remarkable.  She did it with her Biomes Project and she’s done it yet again with the Gloucester Fishing Handbook.  People gobbled up all the copies of the twenty or so books she had printed and there was some exciting talk of possibilities for publishing it.

Rachel Carver-Brown did a fantastic job with the refreshments.  It was just a great great Gloucester Day!DSC04707

Click the picture for just one page from Abby’s Gloucester Fishing 101 book which she produced for seARTS Partner With an Artist Program.  there will be many panels on eth walls here at our Dock- Captain Joe and Sons 95 East Main St Saturday from 10-2PM

Click on the picture below to see it full sized and learn some interesting facts for yourself.  I for one was astounded at the breakdown of how many of each different type of commercial fishing boats there were.  42% of the fleet are lobster boats, I had no idea, but this is just one of the factoids that Abby has broken down.  I think if you click on the picture you will get a sense of how easy she made it all to understand even though there is a ton of data in her book and in her exhibit, ANYONE could easily understand it.

-and this is all stuff that anyone that really takes pride in living in Gloucester or loves the fishing industry should know about.

Abby Ytzen/Captain Joe and Sons seARTS Partner With An Artist Exhibit May 21st

Blown away!  When you can get Pete Mondello, a fisherman for over 50 years excited about a Gloucester fishing industry exhibit you know you’ve done something special.

The way Abby has broken down such an incredible amount of fisheries statistics into an easily digestible visual/artistic/educational/fun presentation with everything you need to know about where Gloucester’s fishing industry has been with data and visuals bringing you right up to the present is nothing short of astounding.

This is an uncomplicated 101 guidebook to Gloucester’s fishing industry which has distilled all the data and will give any person a good basic understanding of what is going on around the Gloucester waterfront.  The way it is broken down there is info for people 7 years old to 70 and it is all incredibly interesting.  Every person who considers themselves a real “Gloucesterite” NEEDS to come see this exhibit.
