Hello Joey,

For your consideration – would you mind adding this to GMG?  This is a group of young women artists whose work is at Earth’s Treasures on Bearskin Neck in Rockport.  They are having an end of summer gallery opening this Saturday at 6 PM.  Your help is greatly appreciated!

Thank you,


And thank you for GMG – it’s great!

Gloucester Times Cover Story:

Artist response to a controversial element of the show:

This blog was posted on Facebook, as well as the artists blog – my response was:

Greg Lookerse – you are outstanding. An installation piece is meant to be provocative – stimulate thought – and invite a dialogue. This piece accomplished all objectives – it went from a still life form to a performance piece – and all who saw and know the story were moved – well done!
