Wednesday evening at 7 PM on the main floor of the Sawyer Free Library, 70 pieces of local art will be up for bid during the Annual Sawyer Free Library Art Auction. The auction has been a major library event for nearly 20 years, supporting programming, student art scholarships, and museum passes as well as art book, periodicals and DVD purchases.
The evening begins at 6 PM with a preview reception on the main floor, followed by the live auction at 7PM. Once again Jack Good, current President of the Essex National Heritage Commission, will be the auctioneer. Many generous local artists donate each year to this festive event. Just a few of the 70 artists represented include David Curtis, Jeff Weaver, Paul Frontiero, Don Gorvette, Ray Crane, Peter Tysver, Bob Blue, Theresa Wonson, Margaret Laurie, Mary Rhinelander, Susie Field, Fred Kepler, Brenda Malloy, Coco Berkman, Bob Blue, Paul George, Sinikka Nogelo and Kate Nordstrom, Allen Sloane.
Featured this year is a painting by the late Margaret Laurie donated by her daughter Jeannine Lynch; a painting donated by the widow of the late Bob Blue and a seascape painting by the late Paul Frontiero donated by his son Paul Frontiero Jr.
The auction is a win-win for all. It’s an opportunity to support local artists, purchase quality art at affordable prices, and support the interests of the community and its library.
An oldie from the blog and the poem still holds up I think.
CAPE ANN VERNAL POND TEAM UPDATE

“Nice time at the Farmer’s Market on Thursday. Great weather, great crowd. Thanks to volunteers Colleen Anderson and John Gallagher. And thanks to the crew from Art Haven, Amelia, Avery and Natalie, for leading the Kid’s activity.
Saturday was the Petco Reptile Rally. Nathan Dubrow was there with his green tree python. I had a few snakes there and it was a fun event. Thanks to the Petco people who helped us out: Amanda, Acacia, Zac and Caroline.

So… we really need lots of volunteers for the next three weeks. Remember, even if you can do an hour or two, it will give someone a lunch break or something. These events are great exposure for us, so please get in touch and let me know that you want to help out. Those of you that have been around for a while know that I can really pester people about volunteering to the point where they wish they were never born. Don’t let this happen to you. Volunteer.
Meanwhile… this really cool vernal pond thing is about to take place, likely in the next week or two. The emergence of newly metamorphosed wood frogs. They look just like the adults except tiny. Like 1/2 inch. We’ll be doing a daytime field trip to see these guys soon. Nick Taormina is scouting the pond to see just when they start hopping. Keep watching your CAVPT emails for final details on this exciting outing. And don’t forget to volunteer.
