Art in Lanesville Student Project

Hi Joey,
Winslow Lewis and Laura Johnson have created a really nice film for James Cook’s AP English Language class at Gloucester High School called ‘At the End of the Road: Lanesville’s Artistic Legacy’. They did a really nice job and I thought it should be shared with the community. Here’s a link to the video which is hosted on Vimeo.
Thanks, Joey, for what you do,

Camilla Macfadyen

North Shore Magazine – a great writeup in the Arts & Culture section

And as you tour around, please visit and support our sponsors; without them we wouldn’t be able to do what we do!
One more thing … after the tour, we will be sending a survey to our email subscribers asking for some valuable feedback and input. Respondents will be entered into a drawing for a gift certificate redeemable at any of the Artisans studios. Stay tuned for more details!

The Local Colors Artists’ Cooperative, now in its 25th year on Main St , celebrates its annual FISH event from June 1 to July 4th with a special art exhibit titled FISH TALES. This annual event, which also coincides with St. Peter’s Fiesta, celebrates the fishing community and natural beauty of Cape Ann . The highlight of this celebration is a reception at Local Colors, 121 Main St. in Gloucester on Saturday, June 21st from 6 – 9 pm with refreshments that is open and free to the public.

This year’s theme FISH TALES captures a broad view of our fishing community and Cape Ann ‘s natural and manmade resources. Each of the 18 artists is free to interpret the theme according to their artistic calling. For special events as this, the artists are encouraged to create works outside their usual media to allow for growth and expansion of their creative talents. All the work for this event is displayed on the featured wall and in the front windows of Local Colors.

The current hours are 10am to 6pm, Sunday through Thursday and 10am to 8pm on Friday and Saturday. The members will be identified with name tags and look forward to meeting the public at the June 21st reception, but the exhibit can be viewed beginning June 1 through July 4.

Windhover announces its Summer Dance Performances
Featuring Forty Steps Dance and Sarah Slifer Swift
at Windhover Performing Arts Center, 257 rear Granite St., Rockport, MA
Friday, July 18–Sunday,July 20, 2014 at 8:00 P.M.

Tickets: Adults, $20; Students and seniors, $18 ; children under 10 free
Tickets may be purchased at Toad Hall Bookstore, Rockport; The Bookstore, Gloucester; or by sending a check to Windhover, P.O. Box 2249, Rockport, MA 01966 

Forty Steps Dance will be performing two works, both choreographed by artistic director Sallee Slagle. “Creatures” was created in 2014 and is based on the movements of the variety of creatures around us and our affinity to the natural world.  “Accord” is a crowd-pleasing work created in 1992 and was recently performed in Nahant for the company’s 20th anniversary.
Sarah Slifer Swift will present two recent works. “Insenser” (2014 premiere), named after an NSA surveillance system, takes on the human response to watching, being watched and becoming data.  “Invisible Stories” (2013) is a collaboration between Swift and Vermont-based writer and choreographer, Kate Morgan, based on the idea that “the book,” open or closed, occupies the landscapes in which we live. 
As part of the “Invisible Stories” performance, an installation in one of the Windhover buildings will be on display at the start of each evening.
