Alice Gardner Discovers Scout Vintage Finds On East Main

As I was driving home from the Rocky Neck Cultural Center where we had the Cape Ann Painter and Photographer Group this morning, I noticed a woman putting out a sign on the sidewalk which said "Hand Made Hats." I stopped to investigate and met owner Karen King of" Scout Vintage Finds." She makes amazing hats from special imported felt and uses beautiful antique hat forms to shape the hats -all one of a kind. They are amazing.  Her friend Shana who dropped in agreed to model a few hats! She also has a lot of interesting antiiques. Karen said that her shop is open Thursday – Monday. .. a must see shop! 186 East Main Street, Gloucester.  978-290-05533    Alice Gardner

2012 Paint Essex Day and Wet Paint Auction Photos From Alice Gardner

Hi Joey,

Here are some pictures from the Paint Essex Day and Wet Paint Auction tonight at the Cox Reservation. We painted in the rain and had a great time.

The auction of paintings and party was enjoyed by all .  Alice

Alice Gardner’s studio

You may have seen some of Alice Garder’s work at the Annie last December…

…or at other venues.  She also organizes the monthly painter/photographer meeting downtown.  The other day I met her just outside her studio, right next to the Cape Ann Museum, and she invited me in to see her work space! Here are a few photos.

This is a shot I took with my camera’s built-in panorama option, so there are some jagged lines, but I liked the overview it gives of the space.

Among her specialties are house portraits, as you can see here:

Thank you for the tour, Alice!
