Nia Routine: Trio: The Music of George Gershwin

So many standards from the American Songbook were written by George Gershwin.  Embraceable You, Our Love is Here to Stay and more.  So many contemporary artists are revisiting and recording new versions of the old standards like Willie Nelson, Diana Krall, Linda Ronstadt.  Why?  Because this music is so timeless.  And it’s great to dance to.  We will be dancing to new versions of the Gershwin standards.  Come join us at the Zoom Stardust Ballroom.  Well at least join me in my basement studio and we will have fun dancing to the Tunes of George Gershwin.

Moving to Heal

Moving to Heal Nia is a slower, less intensive class with less standing and more done in the chair. Great for people with injuries or conditions that make it hard to participate in a classic…

Happy Thanksgiving to all our Bluefin Blowout Captains, crews, sponsors and fans!  We have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving of 2021. 

Although the tournament had to be postponed for many reasons including the most obvious, we were able to begin the planning for 2022. 

The date has not been set yet as we need to work out the details with the Cape Ann’s Marina Resort, the City of Gloucester, and sponsors.  

With less restrictions, we wish the Bluefin Blowout family a very delicious Thanksgiving with family and friends.  In keeping with the philanthropic nature of the amazing Bluefin Blowout, the holidays provide many opportunities to give back. Please be generous this holiday season. 

From Drew, Rob, Cidalia and Kruti, we all wish you the best Thanksgiving filled with delicious food, fishing stories and laughter.

Happy Thanksgiving

Warren Waugh and the Bluefin Blowout Team

Anna Vojtech Open Studio

Gloucester, November 11, 2021 – Successful
multimedia artist Anna Vojtech is opening her new Art
studio on Western Avenue in Magnolia to the public
for the first time.
This open studio event will showcase a wide
variety of Anna’s work spanning over four decades, including her exquisitely detailed botanical watercolors from
her collection “Wild Flowers For All Seasons”, as well as her beautiful, whimsical Illustrations for Children’s books.
She is most known for her illustrations for “The First Strawberries”, a Cherokee Story, which has sold almost four
millions copies.
This display will feature artwork beyond Vojtech’s acclaimed illustrations. The viewer will be able to
experience the depth of her artistic expression, whether it is expressed via canvas in her lush dream-scape
paintings, through her collection of secret geometry oil paintings, or fairy
tale-like abstractions where you can get lost and wander through the fields
of delicious colorscapes. Her paintings are deeply rooted in her connection
to Nature.
Anna’s expansive body of work can not be defined by genre or technique.
Her artwork rather captures emotion and true feelings we all know so well.
Through her use of color, expressed with sometimes painstakingly detailed
brush strokes, other times with bold strokes and splashes, she is able to
express a deeply personal journey which creates an emotional response in
the viewer that is familiar, sometimes beautiful, often mysterious and
occasionally painful. Come experience the magic of Anna Vojtech art in her
new studio in Magnolia.
Anna Vojtech, a native of Prague, Czech Republic, is a painter and an award
winning children’s book illustrator. She studied Animation Film at the
Academy of Applied Arts in Prague, before being forced to leave her
homeland after the Soviet invasion in 1968. In Germany she received
extensive commercial success., and there she met her future husband.
Together they emigrated to Canada and eventually to The United States.
They first settled in Marblehead where Anna raised their two sons while working developing her artwork. Today
they have been living in Gloucester for 22 years. Vojtech has played a vital part of the Gloucester art community.
Her work has been published and exhibited nationally and internationally. She has taught Illustration at the
Montserrat College of Art. She is the founder of Cripple Cove Studios in East Gloucester Harbor. She has been an
active member of the Rocky Neck Art Colony.

Flying Dragon Antiques in Essex

We like to stop by the Flying Dragon in Essex and just browse around the store for interesting items. This time we bought some old but functional and decorative salt and pepper shakers. There’s always a great deal to look at here at Flying Dragon. Don’t forget to check out the little barn along the side! And the signage in the front window changes to reflect the goings-on, so that’s always something to watch for.
