Thoreau, Trails & Sails, and Greenbelt: this weekend’s all about taking the scenic route

20170908_101905.jpg

Emily Levin at Essex National Heritage in Salem, MA, where she has directed marketing and events like Trails & Sails for nine years. The original painting commissioned for Essex National Heritage 10th anniversary (2006) was created by local Ipswich folk artist, Julia Purinton. It’s one of three landscapes: Seacoast ; Conservation Lands and Merrimack Valley (Industry)

 

Emily Levin of Essex National Heritage has directed Trails & Sails for 9 years and seen its growth. Levin told me that 2017 is “one of the largest line ups of different events coming together to showcase the region’s best places in the area. The historic road is already right there. Plus you can stop in all the wonderful restaurants and shops.” The Essex National Heritage headquarters moved to 10 Federal in downtown Salem, next to most anyplace on your visit. I’ll miss steady and affable Bill Steelman who has moved on from Essex National Heritage. Congratulations to Kate Day, Danvers former Town Manager, who has joined to lead the Scenic Byway efforts.

Exquisite new show opening at Jane Deering: Leslie Lewis Sigler & Paul Cary Goldberg

Jane Deering Gallery
Silver and Grey | Leslie Lewis Sigler & Paul Cary Goldberg
Opening Thursday August 3- continues through September 30

Jane Deering opening

from the gallery’s press release:

“The single object. A silver server. A stem from the woods. A treasured spoon. Petals of a dried flower. We experience these things not only perceptually but emotionally and intellectually as well. Silver and Grey celebrates the eternal life of an object: what it once was, what it is now, how it has passed through time and remains.

Leslie Lewis Sigler’s small paintings are reflective portraits of silver cutlery which remind us that these family treasures have an enduring life. “Such items pass through the generations as cherished heirlooms, survive the purgatory of antique markets, or perhaps find new life at estate sales. As their stories evolve, they form a lineage that connects us to one another, across generations and geographies.” -LLS

Paul Cary Goldberg’s series Here Still is a photographic narrative of natural objects he’s been gathering in his Gloucester studio over the past fifteen years. Specimens of discovery, resilience, and inevitable decline. Goldberg has presented the series in the nature morte (literally translated from the French as dead nature) tradition of art and created images both poignant and gentle.

At the opening reception for the Working Waterfront exhibition at Flatrocks Gallery on Saturday June 1st in Lanesville, Bill Lee’s wife Sandy told me of the sinking of Little Sandra the night before.  Hanging on the wall in front of us was my photograph (attached) of Vessel Little Sandra Being Re-Nailed, which I took in 2002.

Tutta la Famiglia: Book Update From Paul Cary Goldberg

image

Hey everyone – Please check out www.bostoniano.info to see an interview about me and the book project! Nicola Orichuia came up to Gloucester and taped our conversation at Gianni Gallo Productions.
I’m currently editing and sequencing the photographs for the book. I’m also transcribing oral histories about the lives of some of the people I’ve photographed which will be included in the book. I’ve renamed the title to, Tutta la Famiglia: Portrait of a Sicilian Caffe in America.
As always, you can head over to my Fractured Atlas page at http://www.fracturedatlas.org/site/fiscal/profile?id=3398to learn more about the project. At the bottom of the page there’s a link to the “project website” where you can see a video on YouTube.
And of course when you go to http://www.fracturedatlas.org/site/fiscal/profile?id=3398 at the bottom of the page there’s that ever so important link to make a tax deductible donation!!!
A presto,
Paul
