NEFA at New England Libraries Conference and in Ipswich: meet up Oct 17 calling all artists, creative orgs and biz
Representatives from the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA) will be in Massachusetts on the North Shore from Oct 16 – 18 participating and presenting at the annual New England Libraries Conference which will be held in Danvers.
NEFA developed an indexed website for the creative economy called Creative Ground. You may have seen it; there are a couple of Gloucester entries in there.
The directory is free and simple and is for all New England artists, cultural non-profits, and creative businesses.
During this upcoming MA road trip, NEFA offered to give another presentation in our area about CreativeGround. Kerrie Bates in Ipswich stepped up and invited Gloucester and Essex National Heritage to help spread the word to the North Shore. The directory is free. The event is free. Learn more:
Speaking of directories–I love the look and talent in the Young Artists Directory at the Hive for artists all media ages 18 up and under 30. they could be in both directories

Will you look at that? An original portrait commission because of the 2015 Thanksgiving Pop Up Fair at the Hive where we featured local younger artists! You can find out more about the artists and see examples of their work on the young artist directory of the Hive website. Which reminds me–artists send in your updates!
Another exciting exhibit at The Hive! GMG readers and Gloucester residents will recognize some of the artists exhibiting. From the press release:
The exhibition, Light, spotlights five artists from the North Shore whose work explores the multifaceted concept of light.

The Hive strives to provide emerging artists with a space to showcase their creative works and to shed light on the growing creative community.
I had a great time at O’Maley this week, presenting to 6th graders for “Gloucester Day”. For the past couple of years, I’ve spoken with classes about the HarborWalk because they study it at some point during the academic year. 6th graders are great and all (they were fantastic), but these O’Maley teachers make it seem effortless. Me? I bought cookies from Cafe Sicilia and Virgilios to hand out! This year I ran into Tom Balf for Maritime Gloucester on the way in, heard the teachers delight in seeing their former student, David Brooks for the Hive, back as a mentor, coach and leader. I caught some of Rick Doucette’s presentation because I heard the exclamations over YMCA summer camp and the 24 sleepless hours in a rocking chair fundraiser. Allison Cousins was heading into a class with Little Charlie Goes To Gloucester, a children’s picture book about poet Charles Olson by filmmaker Henri Ferrini and illustrated by Stefan Mallette. (It was also mentioned as it’s one of the links on the Olson marker for the HarborWalk and you can see it with other Cape Ann Reads published books.) This year, Gloucester day fell on National Teacher Appreciation Day. Every day could be National Teacher Appreciation Day. Here’s the report from 6th grade social studies teacher, Jessica Haskell and her O’Maley colleagues:
On Tuesday, May 3rd, 6th grade students at O’Maley Innovation Middle School participated in “Gloucester Day” as part of an introduction to their end-of-the-year service projects. Citizens who are active members of the Gloucester community volunteered their time and expertise to come in and teach students about organizations that work to make our community a better place. Students were also introduced to ways in which they can personally get involved in these efforts through exploring and discovering their hometown, volunteering, participating in summer camps, and coming up with their own ideas. Community mentors who attended were Catherine Ryan (HarborWalk), Rick Doucette (YMCA, Awesome Gloucester), Meghan Stratton (Backyard Growers), David Brooks (The HIVE), Tom Balf (Maritime Gloucester), Beth Klinefelter (The Open Door), and Allison Cousins (O’Maley Guidance).
Thanks for sending these photos and looking forward to hearing about the students’ projects!
Get better soon, Mr. Davis.

ONE NIGHT ONLY: mark your calendars, November 28th is just 11 days away. Here is the latest roster poster for the 1st Thanksgiving Break POP UP fair at the HIVE, Gloucester’s amazing downtown arts center. Can’t wait to see what these young local artists do!
Love the local all that day. Saturday, November 28th, is ‘Small Business Saturday’ – marketing, yes, but as opposed to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, why not? Support our businesses. SHOP SMALL downtown, stop by the Hive to see and shop more from 4-8, and then head out to eat or restaurant hop.

Cat Ryan submits-
Since the first announcement, we now have 10 younger Gloucester artists signed up for the inaugural Thanksgiving Break POP UP ART FAIR on November 28, 2015 at the Hive from 4-8pm.
So far that’s representation from GHS alumni years 2006, 2007, 2011, 2012, and 2015. Pretty good so far!
We hope more artists will sign up and can’t wait to see what they do. Spread the word! Contact Pauline at firstname.lastname@example.org to add your name to the growing list of exhibitors. We are looking for artists working with any media and/or creative service. Writers, musicians, documentarians, performers, printmakers—who is out there?

The Hive is not only a place looking to involve our community in the making of art, but also is about to start holding regular art shows. Its honestly one of the loveliest spaces to see art in Gloucester and is about to define itself as a regular and relaxed space to see art.
