Did You Know? (You’re All Invited!)
That I’m having my first coming out party as a Cape Ann artist on Wednesday, April 13th at Alchemy, and I’d love everyone to come? I am excited about my exhibit at Alchemy, and the opportunity to meet in person some of the people I’ve connected with virtually through Good Morning Gloucester, as well as see again those I’ve had a chance to meet and get to know in person. In addition to the art opening, I handed off the completed Did You Know book files at 7:00 morning to Barry Pollock at Cricket Press, and he assures me I will have books in hand by the 13th, so it will also be a kickoff and book signing for Did You Know the book. This is the chance for those of you who have just been hankering to have a signed first edition of Did You Know to get one fresh off the Cricket Press. In addition to the books, I will also have some matted prints of my work available for sale. Did you know that during an Alchemy exhibit, 10% of the proceeds of any art sales go to the Gloucester Education Foundation? During the opening party, 20% of the proceeds of any matted print and Did You Know book sales will go to the GEF, so come out, have fun, give me the chance to meet and see you, help the GEF, and help me start paying for the rest of the printing of the book. Also, Mark McDonough, does a great thing for artists with his Alchemy of Art exhibits, so show him some love by filling his place to overflowing. The only thing I am really sad about, is that Joey C., the person I have most to thank for so many of the wonderful things and people I have experienced since moving to Cape Ann, will be away (he’s on vacation again! I really need to become a lobster broker!), so won’t be able to be there. Hopefully Manny (the driving force behind the Did You Know book being done in the first place) will be and can capture it on video for Joey to see on GMG.
You saw it first on Good Morning Gloucester! Have a Good Morning Gloucester (and any where else in the world that you might be right now reading GMG), and a blessed day. EJ
