On Saturday October 12,2013 a dedication ceremony was held at Maritime Gloucester 23 Harbor Loop to dedicate the beautiful Compass Rose that was installed over the summer. The Compass Rose was donated by Matthew Collins. The artist was Mark Read. They both spoke as well as Tom Balf Executive Director of Maritime Gloucester, state and city officials. A reception was held following the ceremony. Music was provided by Michael O’Leary and friends. A good time was had by all. The event was well attended.
Compass Rose at Maritime Gloucester
I wanted to let everyone know that the installation of the Compass Rose sculpture (pictured here with the Sculptor himself, Mark Read) is complete. It is located at the front of Maritime Gloucester and is a beautiful sight to behold, especially at night when it is lit!
This project is coming along and looking really great.
Mark Read is the artist who made the pieces. To see more of his work, please check out his website at http://www.markreadstudio.com/

Went back to Maritime Gloucester and took some photos of the progress. Watching the workers you can see how painstaking labor of love. More photos will come.
Spoke with Matt Maguire from Compass Rose Tattoo- The Tattoo Parlor That Gets The 100% GMG Endorsement and Evie, our canvas and they are working on the final design and we are looking at early next week for the installation!
Can’t wait. We are planning to tape it. As soon as we get the mock up I’ll post it here and we will keep you updated.
