Rocky Neck Legacy

This was one of my favorite films from the Red Shed Film Festival. I think after viewing, you’ll see why. Hit the V icon in the lower right hand corner to view larger.

Rockport’s Motif No.1 Day, Today!

-2-1
The festival goes on, rain or shine. Motif No.1 Day activities will take place as scheduled, so we will see you downtown!

The Motif No.1 Day Festival celebrates the arts in Rockport. And all of it centers around the fishing shack-artist’s studio-tourist attraction that started it all: an old building right on one of Rockport’s historic wharves that was painted so often by artists at the turn of the last century that it was given the nickname Motif No.1 by Lester Hornby, a well know artist and instructor of the period. Film, poetry, dance, music, and art-making activities are all a part of the festival, as well as historical presentations and a 5k and Fun Run, with proceeds to benefit Rockport Public Schools’ wellness initiatives.

Motif No.1 Day takes place from 10am to 5pm on Saturday, May 17th in downtown Rockport. The Motif No.1 Day 5k starts at 9am.

I am delighted to add that my Good Harbor Seal PSA was accepted to the RedShed film Festival. I’ll be there tomorrow afternoon and evening to catch all the short films by local Cape Ann filmmakers. I hope to see you there!
