Manchester Historical Museum Spring Art Show Update

From Beth Welin, Director at the Manchester Historical Museum:

Just got confirmation from the Board of Health that we can have our normal refreshments. The museum will provide drinks (wine and seltzer), and I have a plea out to the board for someone to arrange for cheese and crackers. If you all would be willing to bring something to share, that will make the reception extra nice.  Hope to see you all there.

Shop local, thank you

I Am More Project

Gloucester’s very talented artist Amy Kerr sent me the next couple of events for the I Am More Project.

Dear I Am More subjects,

I’m starting to prep for the next exhibit at South Shore Plaza in Braintree (flyer attached). We’re going to be taking down Holyoke and putting up SSP in one day, so the dates to see the exhibit are March 14-April 9.

Because there are now 40 of you, and an exhibit with the display panels can only include 20, I’m going to be mixing you up at each location. This will be based on people who live closest to the exhibit, and as much diversity as possible in the subject matter. You have all been included in one of the last two exhibits at Northshore and Holyoke, so the South Shore Plaza exhibit will include:

  1. Jessica and Mila
  2. Carol
  3. Jerri
  4.  Josh
  5. Jonathan
  6. Patrick
  7. Arielle
  8. Chris V
  9. Danny
  10. David
  11. Eliana
  12. Margot
  13. Ryan
  14. James
  15. Chris C
  16. Joe
  17. Áine
  18. Ryan M
  19. Seth
  20. Erin (welcome!)

We are able to hang portraits simultaneously in locations that do not require the panels, so if you know of schools, libraries, non-profits, businesses, healthcare facilities who might host a display of 1-20 portraits that you could help facilitate, let me know.

Upcoming press includes the April issue of Northshore Magazine, and it sounds like Fox 25 might be doing a piece from the South Shore Plaza exhibit.

Enjoy these last cold days of winter!

Thank you Amy Kerr

New School Progress on Webster Street

The new East Gloucester/ Veterans Memorial school construction is proceeding as planned, according to a recent article in the Gloucester Daily Times (Feb 21 2022) quoting Superintendent Lummis: “We are on schedule. We are on budget.” So I went over to check it out. I think it’s beginning to look like a school!
