Seaweed Goldsworthy -after the storm Long Beach #RockportMA #GloucesterMA

photo: The seaweed detritus after the October storm changes daily.

In one direction, the seaweed was tide rolled and divided, like dough readied by a bench scraper.

Heading from the Gloucester end of Long Beach to Cape Hedge, thin seaweed trails on the dry sand led to thick seaweed sushi rolls, buffet meadows for the gulls. Walking parallel to these seaweed lines brought artist Andy Goldsworthy to mind.

Seaweed Serra – after the storm Long Beach #GloucesterMA #RockportMA

There’s a sea of seaweed deposited on Long Beach, customary after a big fall storm. A couple of monumental sculptural masses stood out this time.

With the creation of the Cultural Center at Rocky Neck in 2012, RNAC programs are reaching a wider demographic as the visual arts focus is expanding to include more diverse cultural and educational offerings.

coming oct. 2: Juni van dyke | alternative colors for dark times jane deering gallery #gloucesterma

Juni Van Dyke | Alternative Colors for Dark Times: An exhibition of paintings that gives rise to positive emotions, Jane Deering Gallery, 19 Pleasant Street , Gloucester, MA.

Opening Reception Oct. 2nd, 2-5pm

Both nature and music are driving forces in my art. And, as I work, these words by Spanish painter Joan Miro are never far away: “I try to apply colors like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music.”

It has been said that one can live in the dreariest corners of the world all the while performing color miracles on the dreariest of days. German artists Nolde and Kandinsky did just that during the dark impending doom of war suggesting color to be more a matter of preference for expression rather than allegiance to source. Perhaps, color for these courageous artists was embedded in a sense of optimism and hope despite all odds.

I am blessed to live here on Cape Ann where the geography and the light has informed my work for many years. The natural beauty of Cape Ann sweeping across granite; coastal views; hillside vistas is an ever present force in my work. On the way to my job in Gloucester, I travel over the Annisquam river bridge where the ocean below is an ever changing marvel of light and activity awaiting interpretation. Using abstract forms, I invite the viewer to experience my work without interruption of title. Energized by the interaction, I find viewer interpretation fascinating and exciting — valid without exception.
