REMINDER: PRINTING A LIMITED EDITION OF “Super Blue Blood Moon Over Gloucester”

Thursday is the last day that we are taking orders for the limited edition prints of this photo. Please email if you are interested. Thank you so much.  

PRINTING A LIMITED EDITION OF “Super Blue Blood Moon Over Gloucester”


Dear Friends,

I am receiving so many requests for photos and would like to honor your requests while also trying to find a hassle-free simple way to do this and not take time away from completing my documentary film about the Monarchs.

If you would like an 8 x12 print of the “Super Blue Blood Moon Over Gloucester’s UU Church” photo, please place your order by emailing me at, commenting in the comment section of this post, or facebook messaging me. We are printing a limited edition at 95.00 each, which includes shipping and tax. The image will be a giclee print on fine art hot press paper.

The next Super Blue Blood Moon won’t occur until January 31, 2037 (and it could very well be cloudy and not visible).

We will accept checks or cash. Place your order before February 8th (within this upcoming week) and payment must be received by February 15th (within two weeks). The limited edition images will be printed that week and mailed immediately. Your order is not placed until you have received a confirmation of payment.

If this system works smoothly, I think we’ll do the “We Love You Too Snowy Owl” or Piping Plovers “OctoPop” next 🙂

Thank you all so much for your interest ❤

On Wednesday February 14, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. at City Hall, Gloucester will join with activists from around the world for ONE BILLION RISING, the largest action in the history of V-Day, the global activist movement to bring an end to violence against women and girls.

Featuring women’s rights activists Megan Wolf, Gloucester recording artist and Laura Crook, Actor, Writer, Survivor.

ONE BILLION RISING began as a call to action based on the statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion this adds up to more than one billion girls and women.

On February 14, Mayor Sefatia Romeo-Theken will lead our cry for justice, and our resolution that Gloucester will not look the other way, and that we will continue to seek justice for victims and survivors of abuse.

Mayor Sefatia Romeo-Theken notes: “This year more than ever, we join millions of women, girls and men around the world to demand an end to sexual assault and domestic violence. Here in Gloucester, as in many other communities of the U.S. we have been reviewing and strengthening our workplace procedures to assure sexual harassment is prevented. Please join us. ONE BILLION RISING is your opportunity to break the silence and speak out to express outrage at the number of girls and women who endure these injustices.”

Dating Comedy Show Trials of Love arrives at Gloucester Stage for Valentine’s Day


Mike Dorval’s hilariously interactive Trials of Love comes to Gloucester Stage for one night only on Valentine’s Night, Wednesday, February 14 at 7:30 pm. After playing to sold out houses at the Charles Playhouse in Boston — the side-splitting cast will be laughing along with couples on this side of the bridge. According to GSC Managing Director Jeff Zinn, “Trials of Love is truly unique — each new couple and audience brings fresh fodder for comedy. It’s the perfect date night out, ladies’ night, or group outing.”  This interactive problem-solving comedy show, hosted by Mike Dorval, the show’s creator, will run Valentine’s Night, Wednesday February 14th at 7:30pm at Gloucester Stage at 267 E Main St, Gloucester MA 01930. Doors at 6:30 p.m., show at 7:30 p.m.; reserved seating; tickets available online at


Trials of Love, crafted by Dorval, a renowned standup comedian, brings everyday couples into the Love Judge’s (Dorval’s) ‘courtroom’ to have their relationship conflicts worked out through comedic insight and juried audience participation. The couple receives prizes and a lifetime courtroom pass — as well as having their relationship saved — and the partner who emerges victorious is awarded an official proclamation for their triumph. The Love Judge promises there isn’t a couples’ conundrum he can’t resolve — although he does footnote that “isn’t an actual promise.”

The show features fellow comedians from around the East Coast and New York, Carman Lagala, Sam Evans, Emily Ruskowski, Katie McCarthy, and Srilatha Rajamani.

In addition to each night’s featured couple on trial, the Lightning Round of Love gives every member of the audience an opportunity to stump the Love Judge with their relationship dilemma, and the top problem of the night also wins a prize — in addition to their newfound flaw-free relationship!

Pia Juhl & Peter Herbert at Jane Deering Gallery, reception February 10th

Two person February exhibition at Jane Deering Gallery is one to see! See below for more information about the exhibition and the artists fromt the gallery’s press release:

Pia Juhl . After the Storm 2015 . Acrylic on canvas . 20x30 inches .jpgNew Work: Peter Herbert & Pia Juhl opens February 2nd at Jane Deering Gallery, 19 Pleasant Street in Gloucester with a reception on Saturday February 10th from 4-6pm.  Peter Herbert’s series of land and seascapes examines the play of light and color above and below the horizon line.  Also included are images inspired by Degas’ visit to Saint-Valery-sur-Sommes in the South of France and small works that focus on the glare of early morning light in Annisquam.  Pia Juhl writes: ‘I love to paint landscapes of Cape Ann and presently am concentrating on large-scale subjects.’ Glacial boulders, the marsh land, monolithic stones, the vast interaction of sky and sea — all of this has captured her eye.  She breaks down a scene into its essential colors and shapes, using the brush to ‘feel’ the painting’s form.  Both artists live and work on Cape Ann.  This is their first exhibition showing together.  Gallery hours: Friday-Sunday 12noon-5:00pm or by appointment by calling 978-283-2263 or 978-257-6608.

Peter Herbert studied at the Brooklyn Museum, the Art Students League of New York, with Brooklyn realist Andrew Reiss, master painter David Levine, and under the mentorship of Gloucester painters Erma Wheeler and Gordon Goetemann. His work has been exhibited at The Crosby Gallery, New York, NY, The Century Association of New York City, the Wenniger Gallery, the North Shore Arts Association, The Sawyer Free Library and in solo and group exhibitions at The Annisquam Exchange Art Gallery and the Annisquam Village Art Show.

Pia Juhl was born in Denmark and after meeting her American husband there, moved to Boston.  Early on, Edward Hopper was a great influence.  Today, her painting is more intuitive and influenced by Milton Avery, Wolf Kahn and Catalan artist Jaume Muxart. Her work has been exhibited widely on Cape Ann at Flatrocks Gallery, Cove Gallery, Annisquam Exchange Art Gallery and Art in the Barn.  She has also shown at Faneuil Hall in Boston and in Harvard MA. 

Jane Deering Gallery supports regional artists by offering work and exhibition space during the months January, February, March, April & May

Cape Ann Youth Hockey vs. Beijing, China

On Saturday night Cape Ann Youth Hockey’s Squirt 1 team was invited to play a team in town from Beijing, China.  The team from China was in town as part of a cultural exchange program with the Boston Bruins.  The Bruins and the Valley Hockey League invited Squirt 1 to play Beijing at the Porrazzo Arena in East Boston.  While Cape Ann was happy to be victorious with a score of 7-2, more importantly the team was honored to have the opportunity to build bridges with hockey friends from China.  At the end of the game, Cape Ann’s coaching staff presented the visiting team with CAYH pins to take with them as they return to China.

From Keep Massachusetts Beautiful:
The fate of a bill that adds a 5 cent deposit on nip liquor bottles sold in Massachusetts will be decided this Wednesday, Feb 7.

Contact Rep. Thomas Golden at 617-722-2263 and or Sen. Mike Barrett at 617-722-1572 and to voice your support.

While a 5-cent deposit will not eliminate the vast amounts of nip litter in Massachusetts, we believe this is a common-sense way to reduce the problem
