JOHN ABISAMRA

John’s Artist Statement
My real passion is to capture the beauty of nature through the eye of my camera. A native New Englander, my inspiration primarily comes from photographing New England landscapes. I try to capture the uniqueness each season brings along with the magic light that exists. I love capturing the beauty of the coastline. I particularly enjoy photographing during the golden hours of sunrise and sunset and also am drawn to images where nature and man made elements meet. Photography for me is all about capturing a moment in time which may never be repeated. I spend a good amount of time driving on backroads or hiking to secluded places to capture the beauty of nature. My photographs have been published in the Photographer’s Forum MagazineCape Ann Magazine (including three cover photos), Lowell Sun and Gloucester Times. I am a juried member of  Gallery 53 on Rocky Neck, Rockport Art Association, and Newburyport Art Association where my work can be viewed along with the Depot Diner in Beverly and Cape Ann Coffee in Gloucester. I can make matted/framed photos in a variety of sizes or as framed canvas, metal or glass photos.

Mother’s Day Arts Abound

artsaboundmagnolia@gmail.com

As Mother’s Day approaches, I am reminded how quickly the world continues to change. I hope you are all staying as well as you can, mentally and physically. The sad news in our world continues to come but I am trying to stay hopeful that a vaccine is coming soon and that when the crisis is over, that we will have all learned to be kinder and more forgiving to each other.

Arts Abound has been busy in our new role as face mask makers! Just today, Massachusetts’ Governor Baker stated that those folks who are not able to socially distance must wear a mask, or face a $300 fine. We expect to continue our posts at our sewing machines! We continue to donate some masks to help front line workers as well as selling them.

Our masks make a wonderful and colorful gift for Mother’s Day. Think of giving them to your mom, or maybe your dog mom, or the woman who you treats you like a mom, or maybe the mom who looks after your kids. What better way to say that you care than wanting to keep someone safer? I believe that we will each need a few masks, as the pandemic continues, so that we can have one at home, one in the wash, one in the car, and one to give to someone who doesn’t have a mask.

You can choose from the following themes: floral, abstract, juvenile, solid, or neutral. At $15 each, these masks are a great way to be fashionable and safer. You can pick them up curbside at Arts Abound or we can ship them for you for a small extra charge. Working with us is a great way to support local artists and to help our shop pay the rent while we are temporarily closed by the state.

I want to thank all of you wonderful customers for your outpouring of support during this difficult time. It has meant more to me than you can imagine…

Stay safe and sane.

Hugs to you all,
Sue Wheeler, owner

Sue Wheeler from Arts Abound

From the Gloucester Daily Times

Editor’s note: This is one in a series of stories on how the arts community is weathering the challenges brought on by COVID-19.

When Gloucester’s Sue Wheeler opened her art gallery last November, she was hopeful after having a decent holiday season of business. Then came the slower months of winter, and then the pandemic struck and now her shop located in the village of Magnolia is temporarily closed.

She opened Arts Abound to celebrate creativity among local artists and sell locally made items from Cape Ann and Ipswich. She also has a few other Massachusetts artists, like one woman from Watertown who makes jewelry from a protected plant in Brazil called “golden grass” because of its metallic sheen. In all, there are 17 artists featured with an array of fine arts and handcrafted gifts, from pottery to paintings to hand-made aprons — and now face masks in the age of COVID-19.

Wheeler, a graphic designer by trade, has other talents. She sews, paints and in her first career, she was a pastry chef.

” ‘We’ve got you covered” is my slogan now,” she said, referring to the masks. “I thought I’d sell one or two but it has been crazy. I do these to order. I ask if they want a design that is abstract, floral, juvenile, baseball or subdued. My hope is they have some joy in wearing these because this is not a happy time. If these designs make somebody smile at least when they have to put it on every day, then maybe it won’t feel like drudgery.”

Wheeler also has donated about a hundred masks so far to healthcare workers and is working on a batch to donate to SeniorCare volunteers.

Helping her with the mask-making endeavors are her 92-year-old mother, Vivian Wheeler, who is involved with ironing and cutting elastic, as well as two nieces, Alex and Jenn Wheeler, who help cut the fabric.

Even though the gallery is closed because of the pandemic, Wheeler now offers virtual shopping with FaceTime, and she also is making “Lock Down” gift baskets, in which customers can choose what they want the basket to contain including a few food items, like local olive oil and Breakwater Coffee.

“They can also choose from handmade cutting boards, whimsical fish mugs, ocean-inspired pottery, jewelry, and local photography to name just a few options,” she said.

“The idea is people can order whatever they want, and it can include hand-made or hand-painted cards. I’m happy to make things to order,” said Wheeler. “I love to do art and create, and opening this shop was a way to combine everything and a way to help other artists. It’s not easy to be an artist.”

Hey, I am sewing masks for the folks on the front line…I just have to do something for this crisis. I have heard different opinions as to how much it helps but most say it is better than nothing. Many folks are doing this in my area so the craft stores are out of elastic. Does anyone have some I can have? Even on Amazon it is going to take weeks to get. Anyone wanna join me? I have lots of fabric to donate. LMK. Stay safe.
