#AcornPress in action: Mary Rhinelander demonstrates printmaking at #GloucesterMA O’Maley Middle School, also

the upcoming weekly workshop at Cape Ann Museum that Mary Rhinelander will be teaching is SOLD OUT, again. Look for future offerings.

The very dedicated and talented O’Maley art teacher, Brett Dunton, shares some action shots of fine artist and master printmaker, Mary Rhinelander, guest teaching printmaking with the authentic Acorn press in one of the 8th Grade art classes at O’Maley Innovation Middle school. Note the foot.

COUNTDOWN TO CAPE ANN READS CHILDREN’S BOOK FAIR AND CELEBRATION!!

CAPE ANN READS BOOK FAIR is happening Saturday!

Don’t miss this wonderful celebration, the first of what is hoped to be a recurring fair. Cape Ann’s four library directors and Mayor Sefatia are planning a fantastic reception for the attendees, authors, and artists in what promises to be a super fun and unique new event. The fair will take place at Kyrouz Auditorium at City Hall from noon to four with the award ceremony scheduled for 1:30. See the list of authors and artists in the flyer below, but I just want to draw attention to several of my very favorite local artists, names that you will surely recognize, that are participating–Daisy Nell, Mary Rhinelander, Juni VanDyke, Sarah Kelly, Mary Faino, Alice Gardner–I think you get the idea of the caliber of work that is going to be exhibited. Shoutout to Catherine Ryan for all that she is doing to make this fantastic and original celebration possible. When you see her, please give her a huge thank you. 

I hope to see you there!

Artist constituency steps up mightily! Don’t miss Oct 4th annual art auction scene for Sawyer Free Library

It’s great to see the beautiful Matz Gallery at Sawyer Free featuring local artists again. There’s always room for the traveling exhibitions on walls and rooms elsewhere in the building, but I think the Matz gallery and Sawyer Free library sings most when it devotes its main exhibition space to local artists.

Save the date for the LIVE event! OCTOBER 4, 2017

The annual benefit exhibition is hung salon style in advance of an exciting annual live auction reception. Stop by to preview the art or leave a silent bid.  Minimum opening bids range from $40-$400. On October 4th, bring your family, friends and co-workers. There’s always a great buzz in the room.  Bid alone or ‘group-on’ with friends–and generously! You’ll help the artist and the art community in general as well as the library.

Sawyer Free Library deserves the community’s support. Here’s a list of all the 2017 participating magnanimous artists (many are repeat donors). Enjoy some photos from the exhibit to draw your attention to the art.

Jerry Ackerman, Deborah F. Aldrich, Cynthia Asaro, Anita Beloff, Baraka Robin Berger, Coco Berkman, Sheila Farren Billings, Bob Blue, Carmel Bourneuf, Isabelle K. Brown, Pamela Burke, Ann G. Campbell, Nancy Caplan, Katherine Coakley, Ray Crane, Mary Crowningshield, Mary Curcio, Susan W.

East Gloucester July art exhibits: Coco Berkman, Mary Rhinelander and more at Gallery 53; NSAA second summer exhibit and special slate silent auction; Hilary Harrison at Rocky Neck Cultural Center; Stephen LaPierre

Visiting East Gloucester galleries in the summer is like attending an art fair outdoors. Walk gorgeous surroundings and enjoy the great thrill and fun of seeing and purchasing works by established and emerging artists. Here’s a mini gallery guide for July, and a reminder that it doesn’t list every exhibit. Just a sampling. Also note special events happening today and tomorrow: TODAY at Gallery 53, 1-3pm: Working with precious metal clay Trish Conant artist demonstration. TONIGHT Grand Fatilla concert at the Cultural Center. TOMORROW  evening, Sunday, artist talk by Hilary Harrison about her exhibition on view at the Cultural Center.

North Shore Arts Association

150 works from Artists Members through July 30th, the second exhibition in 2016, fill the first and second floors. Two more exhibits are on view. On the first floor, past the reception desk, many many generous artists donated their art–each painting on the same size slate matrix, recovered from the Paint Factory. They comprise a special silent auction closing July 30, 2016. “100% of the proceeds from the Paint Factory Painted Slate Fundraising Silent Auction  will benefit the restoration efforts of both North Shore Arts Association and Ocean Alliance of Gloucester.” Visit the NSAA gallery to enjoy them and to place your bid. You can also contact NSAA directly at 978.283.1857.

ALL of them can be viewed on line. 

Art by new NSAA members, like a Lanes Cove print by James Oliver, are in the farthest room and not to be missed.

GALLERY 53

The current exhibit at Gallery 53 features prints by Coco Berkman. Some of Mary Rhinelander’s prints are on view, various media. (I bought an impression of Mary’s blueberries for a gift, but I kept it!) It’s a great chance to see different mediums in action. I worked with a couple of artists that created reduction linocuts, Coco’s method. They called it  ‘suicide block’ due to its risk. She makes it look easy. (You can see a reduction linocut by Don Gorvett in the collection at Cape Ann Museum.)

Hilary Harrison: Sacred Nature. Reflection and reverie in her installation of sculpture and ink jet photography (printed by the artist on nice matte Hahnemule paper.) I’d recommend ending with this exhibit if you are seeing several in one day.

More Details From Mary Rhinelander’s Limited Edition Cape Ann Blue Willow China Design

Note the Lobster, Fish, Schooner, Mussels, Hammond Castle, Dogbar Breakwater and Cut Bridge?  That’s all in one little section of the design!

In this section there is a dragger,scallops, starfish, sandollars, and the lighthouse.

Again you can head on down to Alexandra’s Bread Co to buy this limited edition numbered print all framed for only $35.  That’s just ridiculous!  Make sure to tell Alexandra if you had any interest in buying a plate or set of the china if this print is ever produced in that form.

Mary Rhinelander’s Limited Edition Cape Ann Blue Willow China Design

There is a limited edition copy of Mary Rhinelander’s Blue Willow China Pattern Design at Alexandra’s Bread Co.

It hasn’t been made into china yet but I’m thinking that some of the finer shops in town like The Black Swan, Stone Leaf, Pauline’s Gifts or Pisces would sell the hell out of this if it were made into China to collectors or people that love the area.

Timeless, just like the stuff that comes out of the Acorn Press.  This framed, numbered, limited edition print sells for only $35 at Alexandra’s Bread Co.
