Read dishy brief updates from downtown, marketing opportunities from MOTT, and trending topics from across the state. The arts scene in Gloucester and Cape Ann has so much going on and sets such a high, high bar for the state. We needed a calendar and GMG did it! Reminder: If organizations want to be featured on the essential GMG calendar and weekly arts round-up, they should email their listings to James Eves! Triple check the calendar before planning any major scheduling dates.

In a city of incredibly good eats how do you make yours stand out?
Lone Gull Coffeeshop 146 Main Street, Gloucester, MA, stands out with local art. Two dynamite mini solo shows are currently on view:
One exhibit features 20 oil paintings, acrylic paintings and gouache drawings by fine artist, Leigh Slingluff. Slingluff works on Cape Ann and resides in Rockport. You may have seen her award-winning painting on exhibit during Cape Ann Plein Air or in the seArts Art Loan @Bass Rocks annual exhibit.
Lone Gull maintains a sign up sheet for 2 featured art exhibits monthly. They have begun booking into 2018 (although scattered months with 1 wall may still be available)
Bob Stephenson’s painting is on permanent display.
Lone Gull gives space to various art books and an entry peppered with local current notices, too.
