It’s been too long since we have stopped at Sugar Magnolias on Main Street for lunch. They have set up socially distanced stations as a COVID precaution, but it’s still nice and cozy in there with excellent staff (thanks to our server Amy!). They have great food as well as some swag available. We had the BLTT (bacon lettuce turkey and tomato) sandwich and the corn chowder/grilled cheese lunch special. Delicious and filling. The place with hopping with sitdown customers as well as pickups at lunchtime. We won’t wait as long between visits for a yummy meal in a comfortable setting.

Currently on view at Jane Deering Gallery — JON SARKIN | PORTRAITS

Currently on view at Jane Deering Gallery — JON SARKIN | PORTRAITS — with a special reception with the artist on Saturday December 4th from 2-5pm.  Many on Cape Ann are familiar with Jon Sarkin — contemporary Outsider Artist — and his abstracted drawings of cactuses, sailboats, and comic book characters; yet his vast body of work consists equally of a large number of portraits. The new works on view in this exhibition capture the purity of feeling and mood. With strong homages to Caravaggio, Francis Bacon, and Van Gogh, Jon’s unique vision and voice brings a fresh perspective on the time-honored tradition of portraiture.
