Not a crime to let your kids walk to school any more
Relax, parents. Now you can allow your kids to walk, ride a bike, or take a bus to school, without you or your children getting arrested. The recently-signed Every Student Succeeds Act contains a section (858) that protects the rights of kids to walk or go out alone. The act was sponsored by Utah senator Mike Lee, who is a supporter of the Free Range Kids movement, and provides some hope for parents who feel that their kids should be allowed some autonomy to get by own their own.

Saturday afternoon Juni Van Dyke spoke to an auditorium overflowing with friends, fans, and fellow artist quilt makers for the opening celebration of “The Neighborhood Quilt Project.” Juni’s all inclusive message is about the positivity of a community coming together to create beautiful works of art, “bearing testimony to the truth that the gift of creativity resides within all of us.” She shared heart warming tales about the contributing quilters and their work. For all involved in this wonderfully powerful community project it was a very special and joyous day.

ROCKY NECK ART COLONY CO-OPERATIVE GALLERY SEEKS NEW MEMBERS

Call to Jury New Members for Gallery 53 on Rocky Neck
Deadline for Applications: March 1, 2016

Artwork Drop Off:
Saturday, March 19, 2-4PM at Studio Gallery at The Cultural Center at Rocky Neck, 6 Wonson Street, Gloucester, MA

Artwork Pick Up:
Sunday, March 20, 6-7PM

Gallery 53 on Rocky Neck
53 Rocky Neck Avenue, Gloucester, MA 01930
Gallery Open May – October

Gallery 53 on Rocky Neck (formerly the Rocky Neck Gallery) is seeking new members for the 2016 season. A member-run, centrally located gallery under the umbrella of the Rocky Neck Art Colony, Gallery 53 exhibits and sells the work of 25 to 30 Cape Ann/North Shore artists to a customer base of local, national and international visitors. In 2015, over 14,000 art lovers visited the gallery, which is open seasonally from Memorial Day until Columbus Day.

“In addition to excellent artists who produce beautiful, saleable work,” said gallery manager Judy Robinson-Cox, “we want energetic, enthusiastic people who will pitch in and help run the gallery. A co-operative gallery is one where members share the day-to-day responsibilities of running the business ­– everything from strategic planning, marketing, party planning and record keeping to hanging the artwork and cleaning the floors.”

This year the gallery is especially interested in finding accomplished artists who work in media and artistic styles not currently represented in the gallery. This includes abstract painting, sculpture, glass arts, fiber arts, and other media with unique, distinctive styles. A group of Gallery 53 artists will review the artwork submitted by prospective members and evaluate it based on originality of concept, technical skill, marketability and appropriateness for Gallery 53. The prospective member’s ability to contribute to gallery operations will also be assessed.

Detailed information on how to apply and an application form are available at www.rockyneckartcolony.org/gallery-53-on-rocky-neck/. The deadline to apply is March 1, 2016. For more information call the Cultural Center at Rocky Neck, 978-515-7004.

January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month

More than 12,000 woman in the United States are diagnosed with cervical cancer annually. (2012 statistics.) Cervical cancer is highly preventable through routine screening, early detection, and vaccination for the Human papilloma virus (HPV.) HPV is a sexually transmitted virus and one of the common causes of cervical cancer.

Screening and Early Detection Saves Lives!

A Pap test can help prevent cervical cancer through early detection. Over the last 30 years, deaths related to cervical cancer have gone down by more than 50% due to improved and increased use of screening tests and vaccinations against HPV.

HPV affects men too! 

HPV can cause other cancers besides cancer of the cervix, including cancer of the vagina, vulva, penis and anus. It can also cause cancer in the back of the throat, including the tongue and tonsils (

Marshall Rosenberg Quote of the Week from Greg Bover

“It’s never what people do that makes us angry; it’s what we tell ourselves about what they did.”

Marshall Rosenberg (1934 – 2015)

An Ohio native who grew up in what he described as “a rough neighborhood in Detroit,” Rosenberg attended Cooley High School and went on to the University of Wisconsin at Madison, receiving a PhD in Clinical Psychology in 1961. He was active in the civil rights movement and in educational reform where he observed passionate debate and even hatred from both sides of these contentious issues. As a response, he founded the Center for Nonviolent Communication in Albuquerque, New Mexico, as a training center for those engaged in peacemaking and conflict resolution. His training sessions and programs have been employed in 60 countries around the world and have served as a model in South Africa, Israel, Yugoslavia, and Afghanistan.
