Sean Hurley Cape Ann Artist/Printmaker Gives An Update On Halibut Point

Sean Hurley here, Cape Ann artist/printmaker.
As you may or may not know, I am also full time cook down at Halibut Point, and we are trying to spread the word about our upcoming anniversary, and the return of our classic menu.  In January, Halibut Point will celebrate its 30th anniversary, almost unheard of in the restaurant business.  We’ve recently been trying out some new things, but we want to get the news out that due to customer feedback and demand, we’ve returned to what we do best, re-instating our old menu.
I’d love it if you could help spread the word – I’ll attach the current menu below.
Cheers,
Sean

Sean Hurley inks a copper plate etching for printing at his studio at Beacon Marine Basin

Adam Bolonsky reports-

Sean Hurley, local artist at work in his studio at Beacon Marine Basin, just one of many artists’ beehives located throughout Gloucester, opens up his studio to Good Morning Gloucester.

Watch while Sean runs the first step in printing a large-sized copper plate etching: inking the etched copper plate.

The print Sean has created is far larger than 11″x17″.

And, attention, Gloucester and Rockport gallery owners! Sean has representation in New York, but none on Cape Ann!

Sean Hurley Etchings- The Process At Gravure Gallery

Sean Hurley Describes and Demonstrates The Etching Process He Uses In His Printmaking Process-
I’ve never heard of or seen anything like this type of painstaking process which will take over a month to finish.
One of the great things about the blog is that I get to meet people and ask questions that I’d never probably ever know the answers to…and then I get to share it all with you guys.

More with Sean In part II coming tomorrow
