RE-OPENING THE CAPE ANN MUSEUM with Director RONDA FALOON

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!

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
