Pauline Bresnahan shares a screenshot–and a Save the Date 11/26/16 Thanksgiving Pop Up @ The Hive

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!

6th grade Gloucester Day at O’Maley and community service

IMG_4579 (1)

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.

We hope more artists will sign up and can’t wait to see what they do. Spread the word! Contact Pauline at paulinebresnahan@hotmail.com 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?

Friends and family: please share the fair and save the date. And thanks Joey for the first post—it truly helped to get the news out and encourage sign ups.

Rooftops show and reception!

Yay! These paintings are gonna see the light of day!

Look left when you wander down Pleasant St. towards Main because these babies will be at the Hive for the month of July. One big painting in the window and then follow the path to the back gallery to see the rest of the work.

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.

2014 Art Haven Buoy Pre-Auction Party At The Hive

If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a million times- The Hive and Art Haven have to be either close to or at the very top of a vast majority of organizations involved in making cool events happen in Gloucester.
The positive energy radiating from this place off the chain.
Good people top to bottom and fun times are guaranteed just by being in their presence.
That being said, there is no better time to be in their presence than the annual buoy auction next Friday night when the biggest fundraiser of the year for the organization takes place.
Go and have a fun time and at the same time support a tremendous group of young energetic people who are putting in a ton of energy to make our community a better place.

Huge thanks to major sponsor of the Buoy Auction Cape Ann Savings Bank-
