In June, Awesome Gloucester commissioned Studio Fresh to create original public art to honor the legion of people in Gloucester who have made a living working “on fish” in “on land” jobs. The mural includes images of women processing fish, a lumper, and a fish cutter.

During the creation of the mural, Persistent Production, a Cape Ann based film and documentary production company, produced an original 6-minute documentary film.

The mural itself in now proudly displayed on an outdoor wall of Ocean Crest Seafood/Neptune’s Harvest in the Fort Neighborhood of Gloucester. The film will debut on November 12th at 6 PM on the Gloucester Facebook page. A community-wide conversation will also happen on November 12th at 7 PM on Zoom ( Both events open to public.

Mary Barker’s Adventure Lights from Rocky Neck

Even though Adventure couldn’t sail this year due to the pandemic we had a very successful year. A 94-year-old wooden schooner always needs care, and lots of it. The ever expanding volunteer corps put in several thousand hours over the summer on what we called deep maintenance, scraping, painting, tarring the rig, attacking rust and rebuilding boarding floats. Now as we transition to our winter mode, Bosun Phil Dunn has strung lights from the bow to the tops of the fore and main masts, and then down to the stern of our NAtioinal Historic Landmark. We want folks to know that the ship and the organization are well and strong, and proud to be a part of the Gloucester waterfront.

Streaming Nia and Restorative Yoga Classes via Zoom with Linda All Free! Week of Nov. 9th Nia Routine: Pink Martini!

Cape Ann Wellness

nia pink martini shoutout grapgicAfter all the political angst, we need a comforting routine to help us recover.  If you have not experienced Pink Martini, you are in for a treat.  Incredible band with many languages and genres.

Here is a link to a few of my favorite pieces in this routine.  Bitty Boppy Betty and Now She’s Gone sung by Guest Singer NPR’s Ari Shapiro.

This Nia routine is all about flexibility and strength to music from movies, not musicals, but movies whose soundtracks have become iconic.

If you are new to Nia with Linda, these streaming classes are free.  Share with anyone who you feel needs a little movement in their lives during this period of social isolation.

So here is how it works.  It will be easier for you if you download the Zoom client for meetings for a desktop or laptop, or the app for phones and tablets.
