Spotlight on Kathy Gerdon Archer
Kathy owned and operated White Bird Gallery on Rocky Neck for many years where she sold her fine art photographs. Separate from her gallery, she also sells her work commercially to hospitals and hotels.
Above are some of the work she will have at the Rocky Neck Holiday Art & Fine Crafts Show. Her images of flowers are typically produced on a very large scale but for this event she plans to produce them smaller, making them a more affordable gift possibility.
Kathy is on the Board of The Rocky Neck Art Colony and The Goetemann Residency Program here in Gloucester. She is also a member of The Copley Society of Boston, The Cambridge Art Association and The Kingston Gallery in Boston’s South End, where she will have a show in February of 2014. http://www.Kathleengerdonarcher.com

The Rocky Neck Gallery is looking incredible this year. Don’t miss the Opening Reception on Saturday, May 25th from 6:00 – 8:00. The same night, Carol McKenna will be having her Opening Reception from 5:00 – 8:00 in the red barn on Madfish Wharf. Rocky Neck as a whole is looking amazingly good this year. All the galleries have amped it up and are totally professional and look great. So put Rocky Neck on your schedule of places to go and things to do this Memorial Day weekend.
Starting off the weekend, make sure you check out the new kids on the block at Madfish Wharf. Liz Sullivan and Jamie O’Neill (and their little 2 year old Owen) will be having their Opening Reception at ZBY Gallery tonight (Friday) from 5:00-10:00pm at Gallery 6 (Joe Weiler’s old gallery and where Aquatro was last year). They have some really fresh and exciting work that you don’t want to miss. Come by and welcome them to Rocky Neck and Madfish Wharf. Afterwards, pop into Madfish Grille and get your groove on with Groove Therapy who have a groovy sound, that will get you movin’ – a great way to warm yourself on a bleaky Friday night. Yes, I said groovy, man.
Also, don’t forget Khan Studio and the Good Morning Gloucester Grand Opening Mug Up Sunday, May 26th from 9:00am until . . .
How can I get my free & delicious food from Brothers’ Brew in Rockport? I can hear you asking… Well, by supporting the Art Exchange, an event taking place in Rockport on Saturday, August 18th. You have just a few hours left to take advantage of the generous offer from the team at Brothers’ Brew, a business that is incredibly supportive of downtown and community initiatives that help make Rockport and Cape Ann such an incredible place to live.
Click HERE to support the Art Exchange project and be sure to check out Brothers’ Brew online. But even better, check them out in person. This is a coffee shop that is a local business in the very best sense. And they make great doughnuts.
The Roving Home’s pop up shop opens at the Tusinski Gallery on Saturday night. Karen Tusinski, owner and artist at the Tusinski Gallery is hosting The Roving Home in conjunction with Earth Day with the theme Home (re)Cycled. The show at the Tusinski Gallery will include handmade pieces, lighting and more — all using vintage items. Decorating using vintage goods is a perfect way to increase environmental awareness — and where better to honor this idea than Rockport, the home of the best swap shop on the East Coast? :)
Hope you can come on Saturday, April 21st from 6 to 8pm. The pop up shop & show run through May 13th. The Tusinski Gallery is located at 2 Main Street in Rockport. Call 978-546-2244 or 978-501-3593 for more information or e-mail Sarah Kelly at email@example.com.
Spring has come to Rockport with one of the town’s first openings of the season! Rocky Delforge is a young Rockport printmaker and artist who is doing some great contemporary work. Yesterday a few of us in town got a preview of his new show and were especially impressed by his massive hand-printed piece depicting downtown Rockport – you MUST see this piece!
The whole show promises some surprises as it takes its cues away from the dominant (if unbelievably beautiful) influence of the nautical. And the show is in a great venue, Thistle Hill on Main Street in Rockport (a few doors down from the Rockport Art Association). Although Thistle Hill is a retail shop, the owner is creating space for Rocky’s show in her efforts to collaborate with a local artist. This is a fantastic idea and what might be the start of a new trend in Rockport: one in which the retail sector and local artists come together.
