Took this one this morning and thought you might want to include it in Community Stuff:)
Gabriella McKearney and Jack feeling lucky.
Hope all is well and thanks as always for the great local coverage!
The opening of Translucence at Flatrocks Gallery Friday night was extremely well attended, but not at all surprising for such an excellent show and gallery space. For us on this side of Cape Ann, it may seem a little out of the way, but it is well worth the trip over to Lanesville to see it. Gloucester’s art scene is just killing it!

This morning I commuted to work on the bus. The newly fallen snow was beautiful. My camera was in the backpack, so I filmed the ride from Folly Cove to Downtown Gloucester, including Lanesville, Annisquam, Bay View, Riverdale, and the City. Enjoy! — at Gloucester, Massachusetts.
In addition you can follow Fred along on Facebook here-
For some strange reason I receive my Good Morning Gloucester Blog in the evening! So for me it is a Good Night Gloucester every night before I go to bed. Thank you for your informative and interesting blog.
Here are a few pics that I took yesterday in the Northeaster Storm. Also there is one of a deer hanging in a tree on Rt. 127 going towards Annisquam that I thought was rather different as it is out in public for all to see. My son who has the award winning Hunter Angler Gardner Cook blog (honest-food.net/blog1/) said it is a spike deer and very good eating. Although he thought hanging it in the front yard was rather brazen!
Happy New Year!

Also, Elizabeth Enfield has an really interesting exhibit opening this weekend at her gallery just down the road from Flatrocks, across the street from the Lanesville Post Office. The exhibit is called 50/50 and here’s a bit more about it from Elizabeth:
There will be an exhibition of my father’s work, over 50 framed photographs, displayed in my gallery at 1095 Washington Street in Lanesville, about 3 miles from downtown Rockport. He was an architectural designer of furniture, lighting and interiors. There will also be renderings, drawings and blueprints to look through. About 10 actual pieces of his work will be displayed, tables, desk, chairs and a pair of etageres. …This auspicious event will continue through the month of August: Friday, Saturday and Sunday and by appointment other times.

For Lanesville Save the Shack –see posting from GMG Lane’s Cove Fish Shack Restoration Auction Harbor Loop
Gloucester Maritime, Saturday April 21, 2012, 1-4PM– The Fishing Shack is an Edward Hopper site.
Here’s a reminder for folks of another reason to connect with the cause, the rich history, and scenic spot. By the late 19th and early 20thcentury, Lanesville was one of the many popular Gloucester spots for artists. It was affordable. It had breathtaking views and light. It had regular trolley service.
Edward Hopper came many times to Gloucester . He came in 1912 with his friend and fellow artist, Leon Kroll. (Kroll would spend over 50 summers in Gloucester , eventually buying a home in the 1940s in the Folly cove neighborhood.) Hopper returned to Gloucester in 1923 for the hoopla surrounding Gloucester ’s tercentenary, and back again several other summers. There are more than 90 Edward Hopper Gloucester images, many of them Downtown.
Barbara Jobe, the organizer for the auction for Save the Shack, and a member of the Building Committee for the Lanes Cove Fish Shack, says the “local artists have been fantastic. They’ve contributed wonderful works of art fro the auction, because they understand the historical significance and the beauty of the fish shack, and the area. It has given to them, and they want to return the gift.”
Here is how Edward Hopper showed Lanes cove in 1923, and contemporary photo and their links.

WE MAKE SUMMER COUNT!
Welcome to North Shore Summer School – the area’s new summer learning opportunity for teens in our region!
North Shore Summer School offers a wide range of high quality, engaging, academic and enrichment courses for middle and high school students over six weeks in the summer. Representatives from 12 school systems across the North Shore helped plan this program as an alternative to the traditional ”summer school” model. Some courses are designed to cover a year’s worth of academic content and some are designed to cover a semester’s worth of content. There are also writing workshops, career exploration labs, and tutoring and test prep services. North Shore Summer School serves students who want to improve specific skills or study habits, reinforce areas of study already covered, or make up credits from the past academic year.
Classes Start: June 25, 2012 Classes End: August 3, 2012
Closed: July 4
Semester 1: June 25 – July 16 (3 weeks)
Semester 2: July 20 – August 3 (3 weeks)
There are several important design features that set this program apart from other summer schools in our region.
- Courses are offered in the afternoons and evenings. It’s summer – students shouldn’t need to get up early to go to school in summer months. This accommodates teens’ summer work and sleep schedules!
- Courses are not age-based. Algebra 1 is Algebra 1. An eighth-grade student who wants to accelerate in math may take this class, as can a tenth grader who didn’t do well in Algebra 1 and needs some credit recovery over the summer.
- Courses are innovative. The “Films to Literature” and “The Graphic Novel” are standards-based, credit bearing courses. They were developed by faculty in the English Department at Swampscott High School where they have been particularly effective in using contemporary genres to develop lifelong readers and engage a wide variety of learners. Career Labs allow students to learn about the real work of different professional fields.
North Shore Summer School is located at Pingree School. Faculty at North Shore Summer School will come from a variety of public and independent schools. The curriculum, developed with input from local and regional education specialists, does not reflect the curriculum offered at Pingree School. That said, students and teachers will be able to take full advantage of Pingree’s state of the art classrooms and science labs.
North Shore Summer School is currently hiring faculty! Please visit the EMPLOYMENT pages for more information.

Attached are two colorful flyers about Jazz for Joy, an exciting concert being held by First Parish Church, Congregational, Manchester-by- the Sea to benefit the new Grace Center. The Grace Center seeks to provide a welcoming day shelter for Cape Ann’s homeless population. Please display one or both flyers, include info in your congregation’s newsletter, bulletin, and generally help get the word out however you can. Not all of you have bulletins, but please send this email to anyone you think who would enjoy the concert and especially to anyone who would want to support the Grace Center.
The musicians performing this concert are well-established artists! You may want to reserve your tickets early to ensure attendance.
Note: The bright spiraling Grace Center logo was deigned by Samantha Alves. While a student at Gloucester High School, Samantha led the Holy Family Parish Youth Group for several years, and coordinated their long-term participation as volunteers at CAIC’s Harvest Meals.
Hey Joey: just came across this portrait I did of George Morey in Lanesville in front of his shack down in the cove. It was taken in 1971 with a view camera
Thank you for your excellent coverage of the Lanesville Music Festival last week. We appreciate it! We had a great day, with beautiful weather, fabulous music, great food and fine people (and dogs!). Our day included initiating our beloved mayor as an official "Lanesvillain." I’m attaching pics of some of the highlights.
