Supportive Day Care Speaks

supportive day care speaks

I personally can vouch for the incredible gift the Supportive Day Care Program is to both the participating seniors and their caregivers.  We are extremely fortunate to have this program and service available for elders and caregivers in our community.  If you have an elderly friend or family member that could benefit from socialization and a loving, fun environment out of the home, or a caregiver who could use some respite, check out the Supportive Day Care Program, or any of the many wonderful daily offerings at the Rose Baker Senior Center.

MMoAA and North Shore Prints Show Opening

The Goetemann Artist Residency at Rocky Neck is pleased to announce the arrival of their second month long artist-in-residence, Laurelin Kruse. Her opening talk will be held at The Rocky Neck Cultural Center, 6 Wonson Street, Gloucester, on Thursday September 3rd at 7pm. The talk is free and open to the public.
Laurelin will be parking her Mobile Museum of American Artifacts at various sites around the city.
The Mobile Museum of American Artifacts is a traveling museum of everyday artifacts and their stories. Housed in a vintage travel trailer, the MMoAA sets up at libraries, grocery stores, museums and other public spaces across the country to invite people to see its evolving collection of artifacts of significant (and insignificant) connection to every day life. The museum crowdsources its collection – at each stop people are welcome to submit objects from their own lives, which will travel on with the museum as part of its rotating exhibit. Inside the museum, artifacts are presented alongside a curated text, which tells the story of the object and its donor, per an interview conducted in the MMoAA at the time of donation.

North Shore Prints is a wonderful show of 17 printmakers works.  The opening reception is tonight from 5-7:00.

Green Dragon Sprung a Leak

Al and Phyllis Bezanson at the Railways with Green Dragon who sprung a leak after a race in Marblehead last weekend.  Al looks a little disconcerted, as he would much rather be out sailing her now than seeing her on dry land.  Hopefully she will be seaworthy and back out sailing soon – the Schooner Festival is just around the corner.

Dead Fish in the Middle of the Road

and it’s stinkin’ to high Heaven.

It was actually in the middle of someone’s driveway.  I couldn’t help but wonder how long it had been there and how it ended up there in the first place.

YUPO_encaustic and collaboration opening

If you haven’t been in to YUPO Gallery recently, don’t miss this opportunity to see Regina Piantedosi’s new encaustic work, which is so inspiring.  She never ceases to amaze me with the new work she has done every time I stop in to visit.
