From Sean Henry
It was so pretty Thursday morning after a light snow.
“Never say you’re having a bad day…say you’re having a character building day”
A great event to be able to shop local. Another good reason to come out to shop on Sunday at the Elks, It is a bi week for the Patriots, so no excuse not to shop local.
We’re Ready to Strike up the band for tonight’s caroling around the Wheeler St Neighborhood (where it all started back in 2004!)
Gloucester, MA Artist Signs Exclusive Deal with Outsider Art Gallery
Gloucester MA, December 8th 2021
Cape Ann artist Jon Sarkin has signed an exclusive representation agreement with the Henry
Boxer Gallery. The gallery will oversee the sales of all of Sarkin’s original fine art, as well as
advocate for the inclusion of the artwork in gallery exhibitions and museum collections. Jon’s
studio will remain open to the public and focus on merchandise, prints, NFTs, and commissions.
“The art of Jon Sarkin is an unmediated outpouring of creativity emerging from a
mysterious psychological space we all possess, but which is usually inaccessible.
The door to that world was unlocked for Jon by a catastrophic event, but what
was lost was also accompanied by a new ability to communicate powerfully
through visual art. The door for Jon remains open and through it he continues to
share his unique vision with the world.”
- Henry Boxer, Director of the Henry Boxer Gallery and Director of Raw
Henry Boxer and his gallery are based in Richmond UK. He has represented outsider and
visionary artists since the 1970’s. The roster of artists include the likes of Malcolm McKesson,
Nick Blinko, and Adolf Wolfli.
Jon Sarkin began his career as an outsider artist in 1989, when complications from a
neurosurgery led to a stroke, which prevented him from returning to work as a chiropractor.
While his artwork was initially therapeutic – respite from the havoc the stroke wreaked on his
nervous system – Jon has developed a truly novel artistic voice as well as a seasoned
“All I can say is that I am highly validated, acknowledged, and flattered.”
- Jon Sarkin
