Art of fatherhood: Gloucester artists and writers

A small selection of images and words about and by fathers, with Gloucester ties. What would you add? Happy Father’s Day!

Air

They took my father’s father from the mines

and laid him, broken, on the kitchen table,

the wake singers lifting their lines

above the water heater he had often mended.

 

My father always dreamed of him alive,

able to whittle an oak peg for every split thing.

all my father lost at the age of nine

enclosed his life, his air.

 

In my flood dream, I carry my father

piggyback–easier than a kid’s coffin–

to safety from the Susquehanna River

as light as a dollhouse, now, or violin.

Joseph Featherstone, from his book of poems, Brace’s Cove

Caitlin

To be seven when a brother dies–

to have shared a room.

Her silence frightened us.

 

One night she rose from the table

and climbed to the top of the stairs.

We heard the small voice

 

singing each of the songs

from the funeral service.

The next morning in school

 

she announced to her class,

“I am ready for questions now.”

by Joseph Featherstone, from Brace’s Cove

full title for the Gordon Parks photograph above: “Frank Domingos kissing a vessel representing remains of a saint, during ceremonies at his father’s home, part of the tri-annual fiesta of Pentacost. The celebration–including the chosing of an Imperator, and visiting, eating, drinking, and worship in the home, culminates in a parade and blessing by the priest–originated with ancient Portugeese fisherman, drought-stricken, who prayed for assistance and received it.”

Captain’s Courageous was published in 1897. “During the winter of 1897-98 I made another trip to South Africa, and on the same boat with me were Rudyard Kipling (Rudyard was named after a place where his father and mother first met), his wife, and his father, Lockwood Kipling, the artist. They proved excellent traveling companions and we have maintained our friendly contact ever sense.” – John Hays Hammond

Hunt purchased a former barn and adjoining carpenter’s shop in Magnolia. “…in three weeks the old, unsightly buildings were converted into a picturesque structure with galleries on the outside, one of them ending in a seat in an old willow-tree. The carpenter shop was turned into a studio, the chief light coming from the wide-open door…The barn was two stories in height, the lower portion being occupied by the van, a phaeton and a dog-cart, as well as by stalls for two or three horses. The upper room was known as the “barracks”, and half a dozen cot-beds were arranged around the sides, as seats by day and beds by night…In a single afternoon his celebrated Gloucester Harbor was painted, and he returned to Magnolia aglow with enthusiasm. “I believe,” he exclaimed, “that I have painted a picture with light in it!…Go out into the sunshine, and try to get some of its color and light. Then come back here, and see how black we are all painting!”

Winslow Homer captures the waiting and watching experienced by so many families in Gloucester. Homer’s father, Charles Savage Homer, left for extended start-ups: to California for gold, to Europe.  Winslow Homer’s mother was a professional and gifted artist who raised three stellar boys solo, a lot. The Homer family remained tight knit.

Friday Nights at the A&P

By Ruthanne “Rufus”  Collinson

When I was a kid

there were Friday nights to get lost in.

There was Mama

to take me shopping,

the smell of outdoors on her wool coat.

There was the A&P on Main Street,

the long spread out time

to wander the rolling floors

and smell the oranges and the coffee grinding.

There was no talking with Mama and me

She chose the food and I thought,

the long time of thinking away from Mama

in the A&P.

I watched the women

with heavy faces and deep frowns

weighing out their fruits

I thought about how bad they looked,

but I knew they didn’t want to die

because of the way they cared

about stacking the apples.

Sometimes I lost Mama and her sadness

but she would find me and take me

to the check out

where I picked up Daddy’s Pall Malls

and then stayed close to her wide sleeve

as we carried our lumpy brown bags

past Paul T. Reddy’s Dancing School.

I heard people dancing upstairs

Shadows in the window suggested music

and the end of time laid out like that.

May 19–June 11

By Peter Shaffer Directed by Benny Sato Ambush Featuring Lindsay Crouse*

“British playwright Peter Shaffer (“Equus,” “Amadeus”) has created two bastions against the decline of Western civilization in the personas of two magnificently eccentric ladies, Lettice Douffet and Lotte Schoen…” Variety
Leading tours through an obscure English mansion utterly devoid of interest, Lettice Douffet chooses to ‘Enlarge! Enliven! Enlighten!’ by fabricating fanciful stories. Igniting the wrath of her employer, a battle ensues that rapidly turns to friendship and a series of escapades that will surely delight. Featuring Lindsay Crouse as Lettice, this delectable comedy by acclaimed playwright, Peter Shaffer, will be directed by GSC veteran, Benny Sato Ambush. Genre British comedy Who it’s for Fans of Downton Abbey; Fans of Lindsay Crouse, Fans of The Norman Conquests (Alan Ayckbourn)

 

Fun Night at Stage Fort Visitor Center and yes that’s Joey’s photograph

On a cover.

Carol Thistle thanking Joey for the Discover Gloucester cover photo.

Stage Fort Visitor Center is officially open for the season. It was a full house last night.

Speaking of generosity: I recognized many of the returning volunteers who fill the shifts necessary to greet and assist all who walk through the door. Or around the gorgeous wrap around porch. The volunteers are a fun, dedicated group.

The opening always feels optimistic and festive. Local restaurants provided tasty signature appetizers and munchies. Laura Baker, proprietor of Castle Manor Inn, kept the table looking great all night.

Everyone takes a few moments to announce their business and any updates. Last night was no different, for instance: Vista Motel has a new, big pool; Cape Ann Marina will be making it easier for people to rent boats by matching clients with captains and vessels; the upcoming schooner race is not ‘competitive’, right?; the new concierge for Beauport Hotel put up his hand and a hello; and Sarah Oaks is fabulously readying the Maritime Gloucester shop.

I let people know that one HarborWalk marker may not be available for Hunt the HarborWalk tracing. It’s the marker at Norman’s Woe in Solomon Jacobs Park and public landing. The park should be open this weekend– and throughout the summer. Keep in mind it’s only a temporary look and opening. The park will close back up after the busy summer season. They may install that HarborWalk marker for the summer, too.

GMG Alternative Energy Series: Elizabeth McLindon Is Reducing Her Carbon Footprint While Saving Money With Her Cazeault Solar Energy Install

Elizabeth is actually cash flow positive after you account for all of the incentives,State and Federal tax breaks and Mass Solar Loan Program.  Her system in just two months which have been particularly cloudy and rainy have exceeded projections by 14%.

She chose born and raised Gloucesterite Tim Sanborn’s Cazeault Solar and Home and has nothing but great things to say about the process and the results.

Call to talk to Tim Sanborn From Cazeault Solar Home at 978-281-4625

Watch our video to hear how she worked her system-

Here is an image of Elizabeth’s system-

Actual chart of Sash and Craig’s energy production using Cazeault Solar which produced more electricity than they consumed over this past year-

DSC07321

They actually get checks for their solar production in addition to having not paying for electricity over the course of the year.  Cazeault Solar estimations of what their system would produce were actually conservative and the energy produced was 13% more than they had estimated when they worked up the numbers.  They beat the estimates by 13%

Gloucester’s Tim Sanborn Owns Cazeault Solar & Home and Explains How Solar Is A Complete No-Brainer Investment

Also Sash wanted to add-

Hey Joey,

It was great to finally meet you in person.  You do such good work in and for the community!

I regret that what I did not say about Tim was that although we wanted solar, we bought Tim. It was Tim that sold us- we already knew we wanted the system but it was his integrity, transparency, enthusiasm and knowledge that convinced us to go with Tim and Cazault.  It was the best decision we could have made because not only has he continued to service us and our system but we have become friends and I want to introduce him to as many people as possible to get more solar systems going on Cape Ann.  It is where we need to be!

In reflection of the piece you shot I hope that was conveyed- that was the most important thing I wanted to say and somehow we got off course.
