We Released The Rare Yellow Lobster We Had At The Dock This Morning After It Had Released Its Eggs While In Our Tank.

We Released The Rare Yellow Lobster We Had At The Dock This Morning After It Had Released Its Eggs While In Our Tank.

About a month ago we released the blue one and the quadruple clawed one for the very same reason.  A good lesson for the kids to learn about sustainability in the lobster industry.  Hated to see that rare lobster leave the dock but at least my girls got to witness it.

Re-opening the Cape Ann Museum: From ceramic shards and Lane’s light to more than 1000 prisms

RE-OPENING THE CAPE ANN MUSEUM with Director RONDA FALOON

Part 3 of 3: From ceramic shards and Lane’s light to more than 1000 prisms

In part 3 of touring the Cape Ann Museum’s recent renovation, Director Ronda Faloon heads upstairs and inspires several portrait shots by Joey Ciaramitaro.

designLAB Architects were tasked with orchestrating four projects for this Cape Ann Museum 2013-14 renovation. The museum required interior repairs and updates for older parts of the building “studs in” such as electrical, plumbing, fire and security systems. There was some necessary upkeep and care of fifty year old surfaces. Underutilized spaces were re-configured. Lastly, the renovation provided an opportunity to reinstall the permanent collection. Prior to this renovation, one of the museum’s last building projects was the Graham Gund master plan, a dramatic facility expansion and redesign begun in 1990 and completed in multi-stages so the museum could remain open.

It’s not easy to temporarily close a Cape Ann mainstay. In order to continue to encourage such a superb experience and repeat visitation, the Cape Ann Museum has continually improved. The museum has been in existence since the 1870s. The various buildings, architects and additions are part of its history and success in sharing the arts and culture of Cape Ann.

When the museum re-opens in August 2014 , as visitors ascend the familiar Graham Gund staircase to the second floor (or elevator—Cape Ann Museum is fully accessible), they’ll encounter a new gallery space custom designed for the massive and rare first order Fresnel Lens, one of 39 remaining in the United States. French physicist Augustine-Jean Fresnel designed these lens in the early 1820s. This one was manufactured in Paris, France, and installed on Thatcher Island in 1861. The lens is remarkable for the science and history and is just one of many objects of notable design in the museum’s collection.

Funding support also tells the story of a museum. This project was successful in raising 5 million for a capital campaign including funding from the Gloucester Community Preservation Act, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the Henry Luce Foundation, the Wyeth Foundation for American Art, among others- and most recently the NEA for the upcoming Fitz Henry Lane Online project.

Although we could not pin her down on a new favorite spot to recommend (“Hopeful that folks will find their own!”)

THREE QUESTIONS FOR MUSEUM DIRECTOR RONDA FALOON

Congratulations on the successful capital campaign and major facilities renovation and collection updates! When did you start as Director?

“I worked as the Assistant Director from 2004-06 and was hired for the Director’s position in 2006. I’ve lived on Cape Ann for 25 years.”

How does it feel to be almost opening?

“10 months is a long time to be closed- I look forward to having people in the museum enjoying and enlivening the spaces!  Everyone here on staff has done more than 200% to make this transformation a reality.”

Is there anything you’ll miss from the prior design?

“Change is hard and it was tough to see rooms you loved being disassembled, but now that they have been replaced with something wonderful it’s exciting! We are so grateful to the members, friends, and community for being so very generous and offering such broad support.”

For more on the legacy of artists on Cape Ann and how important the Cape Ann Museum is…

LOOK UP this August to see Hopper, Homer, Hassam, Lane and more on billboards across the country. The Art Everywhere US campaign will feature works by American artists on displays, ads and transportation platforms across the country. Popular vote decided which images will go large. Visithttp://arteverywhereus.org/art-gallery to see the 58 works of art that were crowd sourced from high lights of 5 museums. Hopper, Homer, Lane, Hassam, Heade: images by artists with some Massachusetts and/or Cape Ann –and Cape Ann Museum–connections are represented. Edward Hopper’s Nighthawksat the Art Institute of Chicago received the most votes. Look for Homer’s Gloucester image, Breezing Up (A Fair Wind), from the National Gallery (which granted Gloucester permission for the Winslow Homer story moment marker for the Gloucester HarborWalk) and Lane’s Boston Harbor, Sunset, Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Several artists have more than one image chosen (Homer, Cassatt, and O’Keefe to name a few).

Part 2 of 3: illuminating the world’s largest collection of America’s master luminist Fitz Henry Lane

 

 

In part 2 of touring the Cape Ann Museum, Director Ronda Faloon shares some of the NEW as we follow along with her. GET READY TO SEE THINGS YOU’VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE.

The Cape Ann Museum’s focus on art and artists is everywhere.

The dramatically redesigned welcome area and exhibition galleries enhance access and connections. There are new windows bringing the outside in. New amenities (welcome desk! coat room! lockers! bathroom!) on the ground floor orient and encourage us to get ready to take a breath, stop and look.

Hundreds of legacy pottery shards with transferred text from the museum’s archives are tucked along four new walls in Diane KW’s new installation, At World’s End- The Story of a Shipwreck.

When the Cape Ann Museum re-opens in August, the world’s largest repository of Gloucester’s very own Fitz Henry Lane collection will be 10x brighter thanks to new installation and lighting design. There’s more to Lane still to be revealed. Thanks to higher resolution images and powerful new media, the museum is producing a state of the art catalogue raissone and research tool, The Complete Works of Fitz Henry Lane, that will glow with close ups, archives, artifacts and stories. Nothing though can take the place of standing close and viewing these beauties in person. As Joey insists, “You have to come see these!”

It’s a GMG mission to make sure everyone understands how amazing this museum is and how fortunate it’s here in Gloucester.

Snapshots from the Schooner Lannon Cigar and Rum Cruise

Joey Ciaramitaro Alicia DeWolf ©Kim Smith 2014The cruise was wonderful fun! Thanks so much to our host Joey, Captains Tom Ellis and Heath Ellis, Bob and Doug Ryan for their fabulous Ryan and Wood rum cocktails, Paul Giacalone for cigars, which although I don’t smoke were throughly enjoyed by guests, and the always awesome Lannon crew!

Bob and Doug Ryan Schooner Lannon ©Kim Smith 2014 copyBob and Doug Wood ~ Loved the cocktails in coconuts–what a delightful touch!

My apologies to our friends on the cruise that there are so few photos. This morning when looking at the images I noticed a giant black sploge on every photo–a huge goober on my image sensor. Here’s a few without the sploge after photoshopping out.

Today at Hunt’s photo in Melrose, my go-to place for all camera wants, needs, and crisis, Doug showed me how to professionally clean my image sensor, and its not as scary as you might think!

Day One With The Chiropractor- Elizabeth Bish

DSC06456

So those that know me know I’m not a fan of going to the doctor’s office.  It’s not that I don’t respect doctors or know they do good work, it’s just that 95% of the time you go in with a nasty head cold you go out knowing exactly what you knew before you went in- there’s no cure for the common cold.

Further, those of you who know me know that I’m pretty well busted up from years and years of pretty intense physical labor down here at the dock.  Last year immobilized and brought to the hospital for excruciating back pain, messed up shoulders, legs, feet, you name it.

Well this last episode of back pain which I’ve been working through with ice and ibuprofen has got my close friends and family begging me to make a doctor’s appointment to try to get me some help.  My good buddy Eric Lorden raved about his chiropractor Elizabeth Bish who has an office which faces the DogBar parking lot underneath Café Bishco.

He and Toby Pett nagged and nagged and nagged and I ignored the both of them.  Then one day I got an unexpected call from Elizabeth Bish asking me to set up an appointment.  Frustrated with my back pain I agreed and we set it up.

Well yesterday morning I went in, filled out the paperwork and went through the standard list of questions you get whenever you’re a new patient at any medical facility.

Then we get down to business. This lady- Elizabeth who is a very attractive lady I’m guessing in her late 40s and weighing about 95lbs soaking wet gets up on me, flips me around a bit tells me to relax and take a deep breath and as soon as I relax lays down a thunder of god suplex which cracks my spine which made a sound so loud I’m thinking the people upstairs at Café Bishco must have thought the the big oak in the parking lot at Dog Bar was gonna come thundering down through the side window.

Next she gently cradles my head in her hands and softly sways it form side to side telling me to relax and take a deep breath, now exhale and then yet again KABLAMMIE, a monster neck twist that managed to get multiple cracks and again on the other side of my neck.  Not gonna lie I thought I was gonna shit my pants at that spit second because I thought my neck literally might have snapped off and I’d be paralyzed but after standing up and walking around my entire back and neck which had severe limited movement felt clearly looser and the range of motion was greatly improved.

I went in skeptical, I walked out feeling much better and a believer.  Looking forward to the next visit and I’ll be sure to report back to you the results.

Thanks Elizabeth
