Hi Joey

ONE NIGHT ONLY: mark your calendars, November 28th is just 11 days away. Here is the latest roster poster for the 1st Thanksgiving Break POP UP fair at the HIVE, Gloucester’s amazing downtown arts center.  Can’t wait to see what these young local artists do!

Love the local all that day. Saturday, November 28th, is ‘Small Business Saturday’ – marketing, yes, but as opposed to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, why not? Support our businesses. SHOP SMALL downtown, stop by the Hive to see and shop more from 4-8, and then head out to eat or restaurant hop.

Thanksgiving Break Pop Up Art Fair UPDATE Gloucester’s inaugural younger artist fair

Cat Ryan submits-

Hi Joey,

Since the first announcement, we now have 10 younger Gloucester artists signed up for the inaugural Thanksgiving Break POP UP ART FAIR on November 28, 2015 at the Hive from 4-8pm.

So far that’s representation from GHS alumni years 2006, 2007, 2011, 2012, and 2015. Pretty good so far!

We hope more artists will sign up and can’t wait to see what they do. Spread the word! Contact Pauline at paulinebresnahan@hotmail.com to add your name to the growing list of exhibitors. We are looking for artists working with any media and/or creative service. Writers, musicians, documentarians, performers, printmakers—who is out there?

Friends and family: please share the fair and save the date. And thanks Joey for the first post—it truly helped to get the news out and encourage sign ups.

POP UP fair update Oct 11 2015

GLOUCESTER 18up and Under30: COOK UP SOME GOOD ART THIS SEMESTER and let your hometown buy Thanksgiving Break Pop Up Art Fair

Cat Ryan submits-

Hi Joey

Check out this great idea! Pauline Bresnahan, artist owner Pauline’s Gifts, mom of three (one a 4th generation Gloucester artist herself) had this great idea to help kids with the business side of art.

Save the date pop up art fair for gloucester college

Gloucester College Students

Thanksgiving Break Pop Up Art Fair sale and exhibit

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on how grateful you are and remember others. We want to thank you by celebrating your art. Home for the holidays- or not- here’s a chance to show what you’ve done and add an exhibit to your CV! Way better than calling your mother. But do that, too.

Where: the HIVE part of Art Haven (established 2008!) amazing arts center is the host venue, 11 Pleasant Street, Gloucester, MA 01930.

When: One day only, Saturday 11/28/15, from 4-8pm, Thanksgiving break weekend

It’s also “Small Business Saturday” – just after Black Friday. Come downtown and support our local shops and young artists. BONUS! 8pm is still early night for young creatives

Who: Gloucester creative collegiates, recent grads, 18 up and under 30

What: Exhibit a sample of your art, any media (sculptor, song writer, musician, poet, jeweler, dancer, graphic designer, ceramicist) Take us from “Hey my kid could do that” to “Hey my kid did that!” and “I want it!” We’ll help figure out the display if you can’t. You are responsible for delivery and take away. Stay in touch for more information.

We’re in the ‘save the date’ early planning stage and hope:

· that you can be there in person to experience the pop up art fair exhibit and celebration, host your ‘booth’, network, and more. If you can’t your art can (and your friends and family at home can drop by. More than turkey for the empty nesters.)

· that you can sell something

· that a digital one page tear sheet for each artist is created

· that you buddy up with one TAG artist

· that a directory is fostered – like an alumni news so you can together share contacts and expertise, friendship,  and that you can build a contact list of people interested in your work

· Did you know that Pauline’s daughter, Kate, David Brooks (founder Art Haven) and Leon Doucette (currently working at Cape Ann Museum) graduated the same year from Gloucester High? What other local news will we learn?

Contact: Email Pauline Bresnahan paulinebresnahan@hotmail.com

if you want to exhibit, if you’re a parent of a college student who may want to hear about it, if you’d like to help, if you’d like to be a sponsor. Three artists have already signed up Kate Bresnahan, James Curcuru and Nicole Dahlmer.

New public art: LOOK UP downtown! Ken Riaf’s Pleasant & Main ARTISPHERE sign, last chance to see group show at Trident, wall mural on Parsons HarborWalk

Cat Ryan submits-

Hi Joey,

Look up downtown if you haven’t yet seen the wonderful Pleasant & Main ARTISPHERE sign designed and project-boosted by artist and dealer, Ken Riaf. Then head on into his Jeffrey Marshall exhibit Law & Water Gallery.

I bet you’ve seen that Ed Touchette painting catching your eye through Trident’s window—last days to see the group exhibit at Trident Gallery. Just one week away from Ed Touchette’s solo exhibit at Trident. East Gloucester and Veterans School parents please get ready to bring your kids to see his exhibit. East Gloucester kids can find an Mr. Touchette throwback tucked away on East Main. Here’s a snapshot – try and find it.

Pass through Parsons down to Rogers or up to Main to see the progress of the artists of Art Haven/Hive. Their wall mural along a private building of Parsons Street is coming along and their depiction of Man at the Wheel is filling in…check it out! We have cleaned and scrubbed out graffiti on many walls, more than once, and are happy to see new public art added alongside the temporary FISH NET street mural and Dress Code’s.

I’m not sure what artist, Bob Stephenson, would have thought of the latest mural, but I wish he could have seen it. I do know he liked the Calderwood Fish Net mural and was grateful to have the graffiti painted out, the lights installed and anytime we swept and weeded.

Special thanks this week to the folks with Dan Leaman Landscaping and Maintenance Corp for extra clean up and weeding along Parsons Street.

Toy With the Idea of Non-Toy Gifts

I was that parent who insisted that my boys were going to have all wooden, all natural, and “real life” toys.  I stuck to that rule for quite some time and, I’m not going to lie, I’m still happy that my boys have, on their own, become interested in things like animals, boats, police/fire/coastguard/etc., vehicles, fishing tackle, and sports cards…rather than Power Rangers, Pokemon, and whatnot.  I guess what I love the most about their interests is that they are “real” and they’re not going anywhere.  You can never learn too much about wild animals, real life heros, sports, science, and such.  But, it isn’t just that, I’m also cheap and I’m happy that they haven’t gotten into the it items that are going to be replaced by new it items in 6 months.

So, they’ve been playing with many of the exact same toys for probably YEARS. They, at 5.5 and 7.5, still can not get enough of their collection of Hess trucks, fishing boats, rescue vehicles, match box cars, and Schleich animals. They also have 100s of small whales, dolphins, seals, sea lions, etc that they spread out and play with for hours.  On the other hand, they also have iPod minis, for when they need some down time…or I need a break!

I say all of this (in my incredibly long-winded own way) because all of that means that I had NO idea what to get them for Christmas this year.  They truly don’t need a thing.  They still use and love so many of their toys…why replace them with stuff just for the sake of having more stuff?  Likewise, we have a tiny little home.  I truly can’t bear the thought of buying crap that they are not going to use.  That having been said, clearly we want to get them things…and not super lame things….for Christmas.

They did ask for a few things…so that helped.  They both wanted a couple of pairs of new sneakers.  Shot, score!  Cause, you know, I was going to have to buy those soon anyway.  They wanted “rollie” hockey bags. Ummm….ok…awesome!  The less I need to lug their gear around the better. It totally rocks that I was also able to get the Grit Pod hockey bags that actually have a compartment for each item of their gear!  TOTALLY addresses my OCD issues.  I couldn’t be happier.  They wanted new backpacks.  That one kind of hurt, because they both have ones that I love…and that don’t really need  to be replaced….but, since they were cheap and easy…I got them.  And, they always get the new Hess truck.  So, not bad.  We were making progress.

They’ve been dying to take guitar lessons, but with hockey, school, etc. that hasn’t really been in the budget. Thank goodness for grandparents, because thanks to Nammy they will have guitars and an amp and thanks to Grampy they’ll have their first three months of lessons. Tremendous.

So, now what?

From here it is all about the Experience Gifts!  Here’s a little secret.  Shhhh.  If, like us, you find yourself to be on a budget, Experience Gifts can be great because you don’t really have to pay for them before Christmas.  For example, last year I put together a little gift basket with some Providence Bruins stuff, a photo of a hotel in Providence, a brochure for the Providence Dave and Busters, and a brochure for the Roger Williams Zoo.  A quick little one night getaway stuffed to the gills with activities that they were going to love to help kill the post holiday/winter doldrums….that didn’t have to be actually paid for until a few weeks after the holidays when we actually booked the hotel and got “baby Bruins” tix online…for super, super cheap I might add.

Another great quick getaway that is on my favorite list is The Great Wolf Lodge in Fitchburg…again, give them a getaway for Christmas by putting together a cute basket (think Wolf ears or nose from a party shop, swim goggles, one of their own bathing suits and/or flip flops, maybe a cheap new towel, a brochure) and then book it in January or February for a mid winter retreat.  Does that sound cheap? What evs….it works.

Experience Gifts don’t have to be in the form of overnight trips though!!

Here are some other ideas:

A membership to Maritime Gloucester.  Get a cheap sand pail (or find one of the 1,000 you already own), throw in a ocean dwelling stuffed animal (or go buy one from their awesome gift shop), maybe a small fishing net, grab a brochure, and you’re good to go.

A season pass for the Water Taxi.  Buy a little toy boat (can you say Toodeloos) and tie on the pass with a cute little bow.  Maybe even find a sailor or captains hat to go with it!

Gift cards to Friendly’s, Orange Leaf, Cape Ann Lanes, Island Art and Hobby, Gloucester Cinema, the Rainforest Cafe, or Art Haven (which also means GLAZED!). Of course, there’s also things like the Museum of Science, the Boston Children’s Museum, the PEM, the Elizabeth Stewart Gardner Museum, the Harvard Museum of Natural History, Sky Zone, The Legoland Discovery Center. You name it!!  Don’t forget their favorite store.  Seems like a no brainer, but my boys love nothing more than a gift card to Fisherman’s Outfitters or Fin and Feather in Essex!  I buy them a couple of new fishing lures and tie them onto the envelope from one of those stores and they’re the happiest of campers.

Two things:  First of all, ALL of these kind-of-lame-to-open gift cards can be made super fun with simple extras.  A little bowling pin (I’ve seen them but probably couldn’t find one when I actually need one so you’re on your own there) or a roll of quarters for the video games to go with the bowling gift card. Some microwave popcorn and some candy put into a cute box (Michael’s Crafts in Danvers sells really cute boxes…sometimes even ones that look like popcorn boxes…see below) to go along with the movie gift card.  An actual container from Orange Leaf (which they give out with their gift cards) filled with some gummy bears, cookies, or other toppings.  A paint brush, crayons, cheap set of markers to go along with the Art Haven gift card. A magnifying glass for the MOS, some small plastic animals/insects to go with the Museum of Natural History. An art book to accompany the art museum visit.  A pair of gym shorts or a new water bottle for the trip to Sky Zone. A small Lego kit to go with the trip to Legoland in Somerville. Whale Watch tickets work well with a brochure or post card of a whale, a stuffed animal, or maybe even a t-shirt from one of the local whale watching companies. You get the point!  Secondly, if a place doesn’t necessarily make/give real gift cards….just make your own and then pay cash when you go for real.  I’ve done that plenty of times.

One of my favorite gifts is a “A Day Your Way” ticket.  Each of my boys get one and then they get to redeem it for a day that is planned totally by them (with in reason and budget!).  They only get one or two a year so if they choose candy for breakfast and breakfast for dinner I don’t really care!  They also get to choose one activity: movie, mini golf, museum, hike, etc. and we follow their lead all day long.

Aside from day trips, are also simple staycation ideas. Super easy, no brainers. Hot cocoa, ice cream sundae toppings, popcorn, and a movie in a fun basket for a family movie night!  Some snacks, a pizza coupon, and a new board game for family game night!  A new book and some snacks for a guaranteed long session of read aloud time together.  A basket of crafting supplies for a day or arts and crafts.  Some binoculars, a compass, a map, a nature map or field guide, maybe a disposable camera…and you’re off for a fun hike together!  You get the idea.

For those of you who are super eager beavers, plan a scavenger hunt!  Some small gifts and clues that will lead your child all around town with some fun stops along the way!  Again, my boys love to search for different boats, see which boats are in and which are out, hit a playground, go for a hike, grab a hot cocoa, search for more clues….  Super fun day!

And, finally….   here are some other Non Toy ideas that I love.

1.  A magazine subscription.  We love National Geographic Kids, National Geographic Little Kids, Boys’ Life, and Time for Kids.  The novelty of getting their new magazine in the mail has never worn off and we make certain to make special time to read it together within 48 hours of its arrival.

2.  To up the ante, a book club.  I’ve used Gift Lit before.  Think wine of the month club, but in a book form for young (or any aged) reader!

3.  Equally, if not more, awesome is Kiwi Crate!! I really hope at least someone has hung on and read this far because this is one of my favorite ideas ever!  Same idea as the monthly book club, but you sign up and then all that you need to complete a fun craft together is shipped right to your house! Total excitement the day it comes in the mail!
