Out of the five artists represented at the Pop Gallery Artist Cooperative yesterday I had the pleasure of interviewing Betsy Frost as my second interview.
Pop Gallery is located at 67 Main Street and will be open for tonight’s Block Party.
Jason is also a very talented artist.
I created two slide shows because of all the swimmers. There was 117 swimmers, hopefully I captured all of them during the “Count”, a safety precaution, same number of swimmers that go into the water must come out and be counted.

Helen Anne Lind Tells The Story Of How She Created The Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce Logo Back in the 70’s
Helen Anne Lind, a frequent commenter on GMG writes in from Palm Springs California after she saw the post I wrote giving props to Chamber Director Bob Hastings-
It is very nice to see the logo I designed for the Chamber many years ago (c 1970′s) still being used. This was created prior to the days of computer graphics & fancy programs. It was hand cut in “ruby lith” (which is a film) with an X-Acto knife. The original size of the art was quite large (perhaps 2ft high or more). It was then reduced to the necessary sizes by means of my vertical “stat camera”.
This equipment could produce B&W paper reproductions and/or transparent film images. It would reduce to 33% and enlarge to 300% in one percent increments. By the 90′s the equipment was a “dinosaur” and the trash truck took it to its final resting grounds. Thanks for showing the logo!

FISHERMEN – I see pride, determination and resignation in the photographs of these men. They are the "last of the independents" in Point Pleasant, NJ. As small commercial fishermen along the East Coast vanish, those that remain persevere and struggle to survive. A centuries old way of life that is rich with tradition and pride may soon be gone, victims of what may be the irreversible consolidation of the fleets. Their culture deserves respect and admiration. Those who work in this inherently dangerous trade are to be admired.
THE FUTURE? – A ghostly view of what may be the disappearing fishing fleets.
