Snapshots from the time lapse filming – The day before the Nor’easter Riley, the early morning air was so still and calm, I was able to photograph while filming. That isn’t always the case because the slightest wind will jostle the movie camera and wreck a time lapse. Usually, you have to hold the tripod down with a death grip to get a good time lapse.

It’s National Meatball Day. Come Celebrate @TonnoGloucester

KT Morse One-Artist Show

Finding Beauty in the Everyday

An exhibition of recent oil and watercolor paintings by artist KT Morse will open in the Marguerite Pearson Room of the Rockport Art Association & Museum (RAA&M) on Saturday, March 17th with an artist’s reception from 2 – 4 PM.  The exhibition will be on view Saturday, March 17 – Thursday, March 29.

KT Morse earned a BFA at the University of Massachusetts in Art Education in 1976.  While an undergraduate, she studied many fields of art, including bronze-casting Sculpture at Mount Holyoke College, Silversmithing at Oregon State University and Watercolor Painting and Silkscreen Printing at Amherst College.  Her love of watercolor painting was propelled by classes with Carl Schmalz, a protege of Eliot O’Hara, who traveled and painted plein air, writing many books on watercolor. She began painting plein air in 1973 and has continued to work outdoors since that time. 

During her time at the UMass, she was employed as a Silversmithing Instructor at the UMass Craftshop and at the Oregon State University Craftshop.  For many years, she considered herself a silversmith, making jewelry and selling her work through craft fairs and classes.  She continued her study of metals at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and eventually studied forging and raising with Master Silversmith Alan Place at Old Newbury Crafters in Amesbury, MA. 

But the love of painting persisted, and in 2001, she renewed her interest in watercolor painting at a summer workshop on Monhegan Island with renowned artist Paul George.  She began to study oil painting and found a new freedom of expression in the medium, creating large 4’x5′ canvases of local landscapes. KT has been accepted as an artist member of the Hudson Valley Art Association, North Shore Arts Association, Rockport Art Association & Museum and the National Association of Women Artists.  She has received numerous awards for her work.

KT and Paul are now married and travel extensively, participating in national plein air events. Together they own a gallery at Rocky Neck Art Colony in Gloucester, MA on beautiful Cape Ann.

St. Joseph Novena begins tomorrow

Year after year local families gather to carry on the italian tradition of the Feast of St. Joseph for our children and future generations.   This year’s Novena to St. Joseph begins tomorrow and will last 9 days until the feast day on March 19th.   Last weekend Sista Felicia and her crew lovingly washed, repaired and presented all the Saints to their Altar in preparation for the Novena.  This year the color Blue was selected because it symbolizes heavenly grace, hope, good health, and the state of servitude. As you all know the Virgin Mary is often depicted wearing blue clothing.  The altar this year is for all Children.  This past year so many families have suffered unimaginable heartbreak and worry for their kids.  The health, safety & wellbeing of our Children is weighing heavily on every parents mind these days.  Prayers to stop the violence surrounding us in society, and prayers for all illnesses, that have struck so many families this past year are needed more than ever.  Together we will petition St. Joseph and the Blessed Mother to keep our children healthy, safe & happy.   St. Joseph, Pray for Us.
