Hi Joey, I walked by The Rudder restaurant at Rocky Neck today and this was displayed in the window out front. It looks like Barbara Lynch is enticing us with a handwritten menu. Also some illustrated recipes for Tomato Sauce, Roast Leg of Lamb, Margherita Pizza and Ricotta Gnocchi!

The Rocky Neck Art Colony is pleased to announce its exhibition, Women on the Wharf: Jane McDonald and Friendson view at The Cultural Center at Rocky Neck from Thursday, August 11, to Sunday, September 11. The opening reception will be on Saturday August 13, 2022 from 4 – 6 PM.           

This retrospective exhibit honors the life and legacy of the renegade artist Jane McDonald, who painted on Cape Ann and Rocky Neck from the 1970s until her death in 2009.  McDonald, a fiercely passionate artist who eschewed societal expectations,  established her own studio/gallery at 77 Rocky Neck Avenue.  In the 1980s and 1990s, she collaborated with and inspired other painters Joan Frank, Eileen Mueller, Carol St. John, and Patricia Sullivan,  generating a powerful female presence on Rocky Neck’s Madfish Wharf.  Jane dedicated herself to supporting these artists, encouraging each to be true to her own vision. This exhibit reunites this dynamic group for the first time. 

A genius of whimsical watercolors, McDonald’s spirit and influence echoes in the work of other Cape Ann artists:  Patricia Sullivan’sstrong colors and composition; Eileen Mueller’s bold brushwork and energy, Joan Frank’s combination of childlike vision and sophistication, and in Carol St. John’s playful, satirical watercolors. These works can be found in collections here and all over the world.  These five artists join the long history of notable artists of Gloucester.

Artists:

Jane McDonald (1938-2009)
Joan Frank (1941–2014)
Eileen Mueller
Carol St. John
Patti Sullivan

Women on the Wharf: Jane McDonald and Friends is on view Thursday through Sunday, noon to 5:00PM at The Cultural Center at Rocky Neck, 6 Wonson Street, Gloucester, Mass.

Gaggle Crossing

Make way for Geese. I dropped three teenagers off at 6:45 this morning for three hours of hockey in Peabody and drove the long, winding way to work to enjoy some early morning quiet. I was happy to pause and watch this gaggle of geese slowly cross the road. With no other cars in sight I got to sip my coffee and not feel the need to hurry up and scoot around them as they made their way from the pond to the cemetery. Slowing down is good.
