Opening Reception of ‘Formally Taught … and Not’ group art exhibition curated by Juni VanDyke March 21st 4:00-6:00pm @ Jane Deering Gallery #GloucesterMA

Formally Taught … and Not includes work by established artists who frequently exhibit in galleries, museums and public institutions, and inspiring work by Senior Citizens in the art program at The Rose Baker Senior Center — creative people whose important life’s work has circumvented formal art training.  Now with time and the passion to explore, these Seniors are continuing in their journey of self-expression. Their artwork is illuminating and proof that we are all equipped with a unique set of sensibilities informed by years of aesthetic practice implicit in daily living — namely observation and the practice of evaluating how things look. The gallery is grateful to the following who participated in the exhibition:

Gabrielle Barzaghi, Coco Berkman, Deborah Bohnert, Anthea Brigham, Carolyn Budrow, Helen Burgess, Kay Carpenter, Nateley Daley, Rob Diebboll, Rob Green, Pippy Gulianno, Joy Halsted, Susan Harrigan, Barbara Jobe, Ed Leavitt, Paul L’Heureux, Marian Linden, Barbara Maddix, Joann Maddix, Judy Magee, Jeffrey Marshall, Maria Millefoglie, Barbara Moody, Adin Murray, Mary McCarl, Gen McNamara, James Paradis, Jenny Parisi, Hans Pundt, Bob Quinn, Doreen Ross, Valerie Sadler, Lynne Sausele, Linda Sojda, Dawn Southworth, Lois Stillman, Bill Sumner, Ed Touchette

About Gloucester Net & Twine building –

Besides the leather factory (founded in 1932), Strong Group businesses on site for three generations of the Cutter family include advertising and product and promotional projects. Prior to the leather business, the historic factory was built and incorporated in 1884. Gloucester Net & Twine quickly ramped up as a major ancillary supplier for the fishing industry. It’s one of the largest oldest factories still standing and was placed on the National Historic Registry in 1996. Eight volumes of historic plan books for Gloucester Net & Twine Company are in the collection of Phillips Library, Peabody Essex Museum. 

Gloucester Net & Twine Company is included in the National Park Service maritime history trail in MA. Gloucester is one of the cities with the most sites–only Boston has more. Besides this historic factory building, other Gloucester sites on the maritime trail include: Our Lady of Good  Voyage, East Gloucester Square Historic District, Man at the Wheel, Schooner Adventure, Ten Pound Light,  Eastern Point Light Station, and Annisquam Harbor Light Station. – C.
