from the press release:  CLOSELY RELATED…an exhibit that attempts to identify and examine artistic elements that appear congruently in works by artists related by friendship or marriage, or by filial kinship, or by the duality of artist and place or…other.  (many possibilities)

Is our art influenced by our environment; our politics; the company we keep, and/or by our generic connections?  And is what we create truly unique? Or was Picasso right when he said: “Every painting already has a mother and a father.”?

Motif No.1 Day Fest THIS Saturday rain or shine!

Lots of good stuff is happening in Rockport this weekend as Rockporters and visitors celebrate the ol’ fishing shack known as Motif No.1 at the annual Motif No.1 Day Fest.

Arts activities, roving poetry, dance, live music, theater, local food, aerialists, acrobats, and much more are on the schedule. It all kicks off with the Motif No.1 Day 5K & Fun Run at 9am, with proceeds going to benefit the Rockport Public Schools’ WELL initiative. We’ll have tents to keep you dry in case of rain, lots of great food, balloons, face-painting, print-making with Rusty and Ingrid, a Pet Parade to benefit Cape Ann Animal Aid – the list goes on…

The Schedule of Events:

So who organizes the Motif No.1 Day Fest? I can hear you asking. Is it the Chamber of Commerce? The Town of Rockport? Magic fairies? No, the organizers of Motif 1 Day volunteer for a local nonprofit called Rockport Exchange. Rockport Exchange works with commercial, cultural, and civic groups to help create a strong sense of community through events and initiatives that promote local food, culture, and industry. Rockport Exchange works hard to be self-funded, but could use your support in sustaining the free community programming the organization provides.

One fun way you can help fund Motif No. 1 Day is by entering the “Win Free Coffee for a Year” raffle at Brothers’ Brew. A $20 ticket gives you a chance for a free cup of coffee every day at Rockport’s favorite doughnut (and more) shop. And the staff at BB throws in specialty coffee as part of the deal for the winner, which makes this prize practically priceless. Last year Rockport’s Harbormaster, Rosemary Lesch, won. And since Rosemary holds court in the corner table nearly every day at Brothers’ Brew, she got her money’s worth with that winning raffle ticket over this past year. Think she can win again? Rosemary is hopeful and has already bought her raffle ticket. You have a few days left to stop by Brothers’ Brew and buy your ticket! Thanks for your support and we’ll see you at the Fest! For more details, go to www.rockportexchange.org

Teen Girls emPOWERed Yoga Workshop

Cape Ann Wellness

Treetop Yoga (3A Pond Rd, Gloucester) welcomes our local teen girls this Sunday for a specialty workshop. Teenage yoga is an excellent way to help your child deal with the overwhelming emotional and physical changes that she goes through during adolescence. This workshop will introduce girls to basic yoga poses and connect the poses through a fun flow. We will also find support from each other with partner poses and games. Finally, there will be a short conversation period to learn how to use either breathing techniques or the yoga practice to help calm the mind when girls face stressful moments in the classroom, on the playing field, or during everyday social interactions. Pre-register HERE.

GoFundMe Page For Astrid and Fred (West Gloucester fire)

image

Hello Joey,

As you probably heard, there was a major fire at a house in West

Gloucester earlier today resulting in a total loss of the home and all

possessions. It was the home of my next door neighbors Astrid af

Klinteberg and Fred Day.  Both of them made it out safely along with

their dog Amelia and eventually they found one of their cats.

A GoFundMe page has been setup at

https://www.gofundme.com/please-help-astrid-amp-fred?viewcontent=92869302

to help them get back on their feet.

If at all possible, publishing a link on the GoodMorningGloucester page

would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Joel Swan (a.k.a. http://simplycapeann.blogspot.com/)

Our Young Swan Suffers a Second Attack

The Young Swan has survived a second attack by Mr. Swan, but only barely. He is injured and needs veterinary care.
The Young Swan is temporarily back at Lyn Fonzo’s swan sanctuary, until a forever home can be found. Photo courtesy Lyn Fonzo.
Katia Mason shares the following, “Tonight the Young Swan was being chased then attacked by the Senior Male Swan in the Harbor. The neighbors at Hawthorne Point ran into the harbor and broke up the attack and protected the young swan.  Thank goodness for Jodi Swenson at Cape Ann Wildlife who got their message and came to help complete the rescue before the tide came in and it got too dark.
Thanks to the Good Morning Gloucester Blog, neighbors had been following the story and knew what was happening. “
