Hey Joey,

East Gloucester Elementary School and ART

Hey Joey,

What happens when artist Loren Doucette exhibits art projects by the entire East Gloucester Elementary student body over two back-to-back family nights?

She lifts it to the level of public art installation. (Ruby McElhenny’s mask J)

That’s Loren’s mom, Diane, helping out.

Thanks to hundreds of display cases –big shout out for the shoe boxes from Mark Adrian Shoes—and a beckoning zippy maze we were treated to a walk in field of masks.

The PTO worked with East Gloucester Elementary to bring Loren and artist Amber LeBlanc (look for her teaching art this summer at YMCA Camp Spindrift) to spend an entire day with each grade. Devoted entirely to art and only art! 

Loren’s most recent work—the view from Kate’s balcony– will be on exhibit opening this weekend atFlat Rocks Gallery.

Esteemed artist, Ed Touchette, is the art teacher year round for East Gloucester Elementary school and Veteran’s. So these students have a touch with a master class every week! And Mary Rhinelanderdesigned the school logo.

Special thanks to EGS PTO for such a memorable event.

end of summer open studio dates loren doucette studio

Loren Doucette writes-

Hi All,

Just wanted to send out an invite to my last days of summer open studio. It will be on display as it is until Sept 17th and then I will be changing things around in preparation for making a new body of work. Attached are the final summer open studio dates. I am also available to show the studio by appointment. Please forward this to anyone you think may be interested in seeing my past six years of work from Montserrat.

Thanks!

Saturday Night on the town, part III

Last Saturday night, after the Bodin Historical Photo event and a visit to the Cape Ann Oil Co. (as described in previous posts), I also stopped by to see Loren Doucette’s show at the Art Room.


She works in a variety of media, including acrylic and pastel, and an interesting method she described of coating paper with black ink and “painting” by removing areas of it – I forget the technical name, but it sounds like a challenging and fun technique to work with.

The artist with her work

Her art is well worth the visit.
