Gone … Fishing: A special exhibition of recent work by Jeffrey Marshall, on view August 10 – November 25

Cape Ann Community

Jeffrey Marshall

The Cape Ann Museum is pleased to host Gone … Fishing, a special exhibition of recent work by Gloucester artist Jeffrey Marshall on display from August 10, 2018 through November 25, 2018.

Using a variety of materials including oil, pastel and conté, ink and grease pencil, Marshall works out of a studio overlooking the Morse Sibley Wharf in East Gloucester. It is one of the few remaining wharves from which Gloucester’s dwindling number of day-fishermen continues to work.

At the site, he has discovered a world littered with the detritus of the working waterfront: buoys and nets, twisted cables and rusted engine parts, bright-blue plastic barrels, dumpsters, storage containers, and, of course, pickup trucks of all shapes and sizes. Parked on the old wharf, the trucks seem out of place and time.  And yet, there they are, serving as mobile offices, a warm spot to enjoy a cup of…

They don’t call these zinnias ‘Giant’ for nothing! One of my favorite zinnias, not only for its show-stopping size and sparkling array of colors, but these beauties are a magnet for Monarchs (and a bevy of other beneficial pollinators, too). Zinnias (Zinnia elegans) are a native North American wildflower and these grand beauties were developed by Ernst Benary, one of the oldest German seed companies, founded in 1843. You can purchase Benary Giant seedlings from Elise and Tucker at Cedar Rock Gardens in the spring.

Benary Giant Zinnia and Monarch Butterfly

Elizabeth Redmond from Essex shares photos and writes,

“Hi Kim,
My little butterfly garden in Essex is only 4 feet by 6 feet and yet the monarchs find the Asclepias incarnata that I grew from seed—so gratifying! This week I’ve had two at a time (although not caught in photo). Thanks for your awareness-raising work and great photos!”

Jackie Bennet, who works at Corliss in Ipswich, shares recent sightings of a male Monarch butterfly and caterpillar, and a female Ruby-throated Hummingbird on the crocosmia.

While filming wildlife over the past week at Revere and Winthrop Beaches, it has been fascinating to see the sand sculptures taking shape for this weekend’s festive International Revere Beach Sand Sculpting exhibit and competition. The theme is “Celebrating Literacy,” and the sculptors have created interpretations of favorite works of literature written for children, teens and adults.  A storybook castle is the centerpiece of the exhibit. It’s all so beautifully ephemeral. The whimsical sculptures will be gone next week.

The festival begins today, Friday, July 20th and runs through Sunday, July 22nd. A ferris wheel and merry-go-round add to the fun, and a fireworks display over Revere Beach is scheduled for Saturday night. The event is free and open to the public. Attached is the complete schedule. For more information visit:
