Jeff Weaver and Gloucester: Acclaimed Painter’s Solo exhibition opens at Cape Ann Museum March 18, 2023 #GloucesterMA

Jeff Weaver is an American artist who began painting the beauty and the built environment in Gloucester five decades ago and it’s remained his lifelong interest.

“This Unique Place: Painting and Drawing by Jeff Weaver”, will be on view at Cape Ann Museum from March 18, 2023 – June 4, 2023. What a welcome chance to survey Weaver’s deft, wry and luminous line and structure. What selection was decided upon by the curators and artist? Save the date to see! The first substantial catalogue of this contemporary American painter will accompany this landmark exhibit.

Weaver’s studio gallery is located on 16 Rogers Street and is open to the public on Saturdays.

A Room With a View

A room with a view. Admittedly, rooms with views are common in these parts, but that shouldn’t negate just how pretty it is along the Essex River. I was so happy to enjoy a nice lunch with a friend the other day at CK Pearl. The tide was super high and, even in January, the scenery was gorgeous. Those mussels too! …. But, that’s a post for another day.

Dinner With Friends At Oak To Ember

We went with our friends Susan and Leo to the new Oak to Ember restaurant on Rogers Street. Formerly the Cape Ann Brewing Company, the inside has been completely gutted and renovated to reflect an entirely new vibe. And it succeeds in being a real treat for the eyes as well as the palate. Our server Cheri answered our questions thoroughly and easily. We ordered calamari appetizer along with shrimp cocktail and oysters. Susan and Leo split a flat iron steak entree while Jim had the smoked chicken. I tried the wood grilled lobster, something new and delightful for me! We shared some apple cake for dessert. We lingered over our meal and drinks chatting with our friends. There was a steady flow of customers ranging from families to couples like ourselves. Cheri didn’t rush us out the door, which we appreciated. It was a delightful experience. Welcome to Gloucester, Oak to Ember!
