JDG Jane Deering Pleasant opening night

Whether Annisquam, Boston, Concord, Santa Barbara, or London, art dealer and gallery owner Jane Deering  gives artists the great gifts of spaciousness and calm. Last night she opened JDG. This intimate new space in a renovated historic building on Pleasant Street in downtown Gloucester will give you an instant feel  of her serene sense of proportion. JDG will feature a program of contemporary mid-career and emerging artists living and working in Cape Ann, Santa Barbara, and the UK.

Juni Van Dyke and Jane Deering are two very talented sisters. Thanks to writer, Sean Farrell, for sending photos from the party. I borrowed Sean’s phone to snap pictures as my battery did not keep up with several exhibits I went to before stepping in to ponder and celebrate this new beginning. More on the other shows later.

And the build-out continues!

Just wanted to update everyone that we had a great day on Monday at Art Haven’s new space, finishing building out some walls, getting the art materials thrift store cleaned out, and Sal Russo coming through HUGE by finishing repointing the back wall of our function room!

Here’s the awesome crew from Chris Fogarty Carpentry who generously volunteered their time to put up most of the walls in the space:

And the RAYS kids helping to get the thrift store ready!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And even a couple of the TAG kids stopping by to check out the awesome new space they’ll get to use! (Can you tell their excited?)

 

Great volunteers on Saturday!

Just wanted to thank the tremendous group of volunteer contractors that came and helped to start putting walls up at 11 Pleasant Street with us on Saturday! Check out the slideshow to see pictures of Kevin Hansery, Ron Nilsson, Aaron Noble, Tad Cunningham, and Patti Seitz doing some tremendous work. Interior walls up and ready for plumbing!

Also, thanks to Dunkin Donuts and Braga Management for some delicious donuts and coffee that made the day even more enjoyable and to Building Center for the beautiful lumber!

Wanna show off your construction skills this Saturday?

Art Haven can use some help this Saturday framing out their new space on Pleasant Street! If you’ve got construction experience and some free time, grab your tools and come on down – it’s sure to be a good time. Work will start at 9am, but feel free to come down whenever you can and help out.  For more info about what’s going on, check out this interview with Dave Brooks, founder and visionary:)

Pleasant Street is going to be awesome!!

I was just walking down Pleasant Street this morning and realizing how AWESOME it’s going to be once all the work that’s currently happening there is finished. Just think about it! Between the Johnstone & Schlichte building being re-done, the great new entrance and windows on Pleasant Street Tea Co. and, my [extremely biased] personal favorite, the old office supply store becoming an incredibly creative community space, Pleasant Street is really gonna be rockin! Some photos of the works in progress for your enjoyment:

The Bean Takes A Pleasant Street Picture

While spending an awesome day at the Middle Street Walk events I had a great time chilling with my oldest -The Bean.  We stopped off to warm up and enjoy a nice hot cup of Pleasant St Tea and Coffee Co hot chocolate (really delicious)

So I gave her the camera and she snapped this pic from our corner chair.

The Bean at The Pleasant St Tea and Coffee Co

She has a good eye that little bean of mine.
I love the detailed architecture on this building.  Does anyone build new buildings like this any more?

I wonder what the economic climate was like when this building was built.   Buildings like this just aren’t constructed regularly in our day, I guess because it is cost prohibitive.  Do you think it came down to economics or just a sense of pride when the people who built this building designed and had it built?
