From the Gloucester Daily Times

Magnolia art gallery returns with much local art  

Arts Abound, a Magnolia gallery and gift boutique, is celebrating a grand re-opening with new handcrafted items and original artwork. Store owner Sue Wheeler is an artist who paints colorful cold wax and oil, and acrylic sea, floral, and abstract pieces. The featured artist is Eve Perkins, who creates whimsical beach and maritime illustrations of Gloucester and Manchester. The gallery features photographer Donna Ardizzoni’s popular beach towels in a choice of local scenes as well as works by local photographers Laurinda Butcher, John Abisamra and Melissa Cox and others.

Also featured is Gloucester’s Stephanie Mason, who is known for her fish mugs, ornaments, and place mats, and Tin Can Sally (Seamans) who makes earrings using tin cans from all over the world. Rocky Neck’s Brenda Malloy features her hand-painted magnets and cards. Other Cape Ann artists are Gloucester’s Sue Ingram with local paintings of florals and seagulls, Rockport’s Deb Schradieck who paints watercolors of Rockport and Gloucester, and Manchester’s Christine Gauthier Kelley who creates hand-painted silk scarves and shawls. The shop features many other handmade items including ocean-inspired pottery, “Glosta” and Magnolia caps and tees, handblown glass and jewelry.

“Thank you for supporting neighboring artists and small businesses challenged by the pandemic,” said Wheeler. She also noted that the Magnolia’s farmers market will start the first Sunday in June on Lexington Avenue. Arts Abound is located at 21C Lexington Ave., in Magnolia village.  For hours and more information visit

They Must be on Nests or in Dens — pat morss

There is a shortage of wildlife around these days on our walks. We’re waiting for the explosion of young ones. In the meantme, here are some recent random photos.

For those who access GMG through the daily email, it wasn’t sent out last Saturday. Joey kindly provided a direct link to my “Alewife Fish Ladders” posting:

Lightening the Load

I unburdened myself literally and figuratively by removing all the “extra” “emergency” masks, nose pieces and sanitizer from my purse. I am not going to lie….I am going to kind of miss the red white and blue gaiter. My purse is lighter and so is my spirit as summer approaches with a new outlook.

Our commitment to a safe, healthy & fun environment at Serenitee Restaurant Group


Our commitment to a safe, healthy & fun environment

We wanted to reach out to our community in light of Massachusetts lifting existing COVID-19 restrictions on May 29th.

Any staff member who is not wearing a mask after this date has confirmed their vaccination status with us. That said, some of our staff members have chosen to continue to wear their masks regardless of their vaccination status, and this is a personal choice that we respect.

We ask that all unvaccinated guests continue to wear their masks when in our establishments, and we will continue to have extra masks on hand if you ever need one.

We currently offer outdoor seating at allSerenitee Restaurant Grouplocations, so you are able to dine however you feel most comfortable.

We also want to take a moment to sincerely thank all our guests who have supported us during this past…
