Look and look again: The HarborWalk Fishermen’s Wharf exhibit is deeply channeled, joining discussion with fine art, business and community, wharf and sea.

Keep in mind that the installation is a work-in-progress. Look for updates and notices of an official unveiling!

Back in 2010, detailed information panels along Fishermen’s Wharf were created by Mark McDonough, Vito Giacalone, Peter Prybot and Joey Ciaramitaro. The panels were installed along the Giacalone’s wall, between businesses and at the water’s edge. The content, collaborative spirit and contemporary reporting impacted the HarborWalk design. Cambridge Seven Associates, architects for the HarborWalk, were fans. Connections were encouraged. Two HarborWalk story posts (formerly described as Story Moments) were sited at each end: Fishing Today HarborWalk Story Post #5 and Lobstering HarborWalk Story Post #4. Pretty much everybody hoped the signs would be cared for and this outdoor channel would remain.

Thanks to bright sunshine, the panels along Fishermen’s Wharf deteriorated. Some of the fabulous content disappeared. Guess what? Signs are temporary and can be re-visited.

New signs were designed, content edited and updated, and the display taken to a new level with support of the City. Matt Coogan, Senior Planner Community Development, directed the project, working with the original authors and team. Cambridge Seven Associates designed the panels. The addition of fine art photography, drawings and design spiffed up the already museum quality display. Fine art by Joey Ciaramitaro, Marty Luster, Paul Frontiero and others are something else to celebrate this week!

Saunter by. More stories to come. Worth repeating: the exhibit is still a work in progress. It’s not 100% live…yet!

Hi,

My name is Paul F Frontiero Jr and I’m starting my own “Jackstarter” Campaign.

What’s a “JackStarter” Campaign? There was no such thing until now. (I just made it up)

I am selling some of my Dad’s Paintings on Ebay. The money will go to adopting a needy Jack Russell Terrier.

I’m am stating out the bidding very low so you can enjoy a beautiful painting by my dad for a crazy low cost. You will see paintings this size by other Cape Ann artists for hundreds of dollars more. So Bid and own a beautiful piece of Cape Ann Art by a Great Cape Ann Painter “Paul F Frontiero Sr.”

I’ll ship anywhere in the USA or will hand deliver it to you if you live on Cape Ann.

There’s no obligation to buy, but if your looking for a painting I just wanted you to know what the money will go to.

I will share my experience of adopting a Jack with the GMG readers. I’ll be working with JacksGalore of western Massachusetts

And I’m sure you’ll see us walking around Stage Fort Park this Summer.

There are a lot of needy “Jack’s” out there that need a forever home.

Our “Blaze” was a sweetheart. We had her for 7 years before she was diagnosed with a collapsed Tracea.

She got me through a lot of hard times. She Passed over the bridge on Feb. 2, 2015. Now I know she’s taking care of my Son and Father.

She almost took down GMG Headquarters at one time. And we miss her so much.

We will be giving a needy Jack Russell a great home to enjoy.

Maybe this one will become the “OFFICIAL DOG OF GMG

You can check out all the cute Jack Russells and make a donation of any size at;

Wicked Tuna Hard Merchandise

WAKE UP CAPTAIN!

WAKE UP CAPTAIN!

 The Wicked Tuna’s “Hard Merchandise”

I caught the Hard Merchandise from the TV Show Wicked Tuna unloading a few Bluefin Tuna at the State fish Pier this Summer. One of the Tv crew members said the shows they’re filming will air in February 2015. So you may get lucky and watch them film on the Gloucester waterfront. The Hard Merchandise has been fishing for years here in Gloucester way before the TV show. They dock at the wharf behind the Madfish Galleries on Rocky Neck. I’m sure all their Fans will enjoy these photo’s. Video’s coming soon.

Hard Merchandise

Hard Merchandise at rest.

Lately it’s hard to avoid The Hard Merchandise around the harbor working and with multiple cameras pointed at the crew unloading Bluefin Tuna.

I caught the Hard Merchandise at rest where it’s been docked for years. Behind the Madfish Galleries on Rocky Neck.

My camera was the only one there.
