Translucence at Flatrocks Gallery Jan 24-Feb 25

Winter is the season of brittle fragility. Ice crystals from overnight storms shatter morning sunlight as it passes through trees. Ponds freeze over and we walk across them looking down at worlds mysteriously layered, as light strains to pass through.

In the same way that winter ice alters the sensation of seeing, so glass is a universal tool for looking. “In the end,” says artist Josiah McElheny, ” it’s not the glass that’s important, it’s what you see through it.”

The idea for this show began with a fascination for the simultaneous depth and transparancy of ice. Its ability to reflect and to create introspection at the same time is a window into the mysteries of the world of ice and snow.

We searched out work that embodied these qualities. Megan Mowins, a Gloucester native now working at Diablo Glass in Boston, has brought to us a group of highly dedicated glass artists; Chris Watts, Keith Cerone, Matthew Cronin, Evan Voelbel, Aron Leaman and Toby Helene Walters. They exhibit the many disciplines of glass.

On our walls are Debbie Clark’s works on glass layered with paint, pen , gold and silver leaf, Judy Robinson-Cox’s black & white photos, Linda Cordner encaustics and Otto Laske’s digital photography. Along with a special collection of Beth Williams jewelry to dazzle!

Translucence runs from Jan. 24 through Feb.25. There will be an opening reception on Sat. Jan. 25 from 6-8pm. On Sat. Feb.15 there will be an artist talk at 4pm. Winter hours at the gallery will be Friday-Sunday 12-5 and by appointment..

Please join us this Saturday, Jan 25, at 7 pm as we host Peter Krasinski in his 11th appearance accompanying silent movies.


Come see the fun when theatre going was crafted for an individual audience and the audience responded with enthusiasm.

Organist Peter Krasinski will deliver an accompaniment that will make these films unforgettable.

We will first screen the 1921 short film THE PLAYHOUSE starring Buster Keaton.  Awaking from his wacky dream, a theatre stage hand inadvertently causes havoc everywhere he works.

Then we will screen the 1921 feature: THE NUT starring Douglas Fairbanks (not JR!) and Marguerite de la Motte. An eccentric inventor tries to interest wealthy investors in his girlfriend’s plan to help children from poor neighborhoods.

Come young, come old, this is fun for the whole family. The program starts at 7 pm, but we’ll feature classic Warner Bros. Cartoons from 6 pm on. FREE POPCORN! 

St. John’s Church, Gloucester is at 48 Middle Street with parking at 33 Washington Street. Come early and enjoy the lively shopping and restaurant scene. 

Tickets at the door: $15/$10 seniors and students. 978.283.1708 

Come experience a bygone era that will come alive for you. Peter Krasinski accompanies movies around the world and will delight you.
