Feeling A Lot Like Christmas


On Saturday it started to feel a lot like Christmas. We had large flakes of snow falling, I started playing holiday tunes in the gallery, the Lobster Trap Tree was lit, and a beautiful floral arrangement was delivered to the gallery. It’s a gift from Sharon StClair and husband Chuck King of Florida. It was given to me and the “GMG Gang,” and will be the centerpiece of the gala GMG Holiday Party on December 19th. They love Cape Ann, are Friends of the Gallery, of Good Morning Gloucester, and are my friends. I wish them a very happy Christmas.

What a Great Night at the Bodin Gallery!

Peggy Russell (POP Gallery), Kirstin Myers (of Downtown Gloucester), and Kat, the Star Clam Lady.


Stuffed Clams that we served tonight at my gallery, made by Kat, a passionate professional. Gotta do it.

We had a great opening last night with Kat’s stuffed clams, Ginny and Nannette’s stuffed mushrooms, and Debbie Demarkis’s meat, cheese, and marinated sun-dried tomato platters, And wonderful Joy, our Angel Reader. Although we had 50+ people here, Kat’s clams, which were a huge hit, were not completely consumed, because she brought so many. Tonight I gave three of them to Steve, (one of the owners of Jalapeños). So I’m opening up the gallery for stuffed clams, and other leftovers for a mug up tomorrow at morning 10:30 am. I also have Belgian Ring Rasperry pastry to put out. Low key:, so eat, drink, and relax before the Santa Parade. BYO coffee. I’ve got soda, cider, beer and wine. All FOB’s and FOG’s (friends of the GMG Blog  and Friends of the Gallery) are welcome, plus everyone else, to come in to eat, drink, and hang out. Fred

The Therans Represent! at Bodin Gallery

Fred Bodin writes-

Californians Peter Theran, VMD and his daughter Michelle Major-Theran, MD represent at Bodin Historic Photo gallery last night. They and 22 relatives are in Gloucester for an Easter family reunion, staying at the Hovey House. They absolutely love Gloucester. I thought Peter looked familiar, and in talking it came out that he worked for Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston from 1961 to 1984, retiring as a vice president. Early in my freelance career, I took the annual hospital staff photo (including Peter during his tenure), and continued to do so for almost 30 years. It’s a small world!
