BankGloucester “I Am More” Reception
During the months of November and December BankGloucester is hosting eight portraits from the original I Am More series. The colored pencil and pastel portraits by Amy Kerr are accompanied by essays by the subjects about how they are more than their mental illness or life situation.
There will be a reception this Saturday November 16th from 11am – 1pm at 160 Main Street in Gloucester if you would like to meet the artist and some of the local subjects.
This is the last scheduled I Am More event for Cape Ann, so a huge thank you to Ocean Alliance, the City of Gloucester, Action Inc., The Open Door, Gloucester Stage Company, Cape Ann Animal Aid, Saltwater Massage Studio, Backyard Growers, Maritime Gloucester, Willow Rest, Treetop Yoga, Addison Gilbert Hospital, Magnolia Library, The Common Crow, Cape Ann Savings Bank, Cape Ann Cinema and Stage, Gloucester High School, Rockport Police Department, Seniorcare Inc., and the Sawyer Free Library for providing a space for discussion and healing. The portraits will continue to travel to locations around Massachusetts and New England.
“If you could post this to Good Morning Gloucester that would be greatly appreciated!”

Pictures from last nights’ reception at Bank Gloucester for the unveiling of renowned artist Ken Knowles painting “Schooner Race” commissioned by Bank Gloucester. A smaller version of the painting was auctioned off by auctioneer Senator Tarr (clearly his second calling!) with proceeds donated to Wellspring.

The student musicians in the Docksiders, Gloucester High School’s stage band, made their last big fund-raising push for their trip to Hawaii.
The trip to Hawaii, April 16 to 23, is not the first trip the group has taken. In the nine years the band has been together, it is given concerts throughout the Cape Ann area, and tries to take a trip every two years. The Docksiders have traveled as far as California to play at Disney Land and to Florida, where the group twice played at Walt Disney World.
It was the Docksiders’ trip to Walt Disney World two years ago that led to this excursion for the band. See Times article here.
