Good Morning Joey,
Upcoming for the Photography Division of the Rockport Art Association is Large Works: by Leslie D. Bartlett and Jeffrey Trubisz, September 28th thru October 17th. Opening Reception Sunday, September 29th ~ 2-4pm.
This show will highlight panoramas under glass and around walls, from locations near and far. “Expanding beyond traditional photograph sizes of 8×10 inches and 11×14 inches, Leslie and Jeffrey are providing unique views of the familiar and places we have yet to see,” says Law Hamilton, chairperson of the Photography Division at the RAA.
Leslie D. Bartlett invites us to –
“View from, gaze across, stand in the midst of…
And enter a moment of Emotional Intelligence where all the senses are present.”
He will be featuring a quarry wall image “Noli Me Tangere.”
Jeffrey Trubisz invites us to –
“Step into this room and cross my trail for a few moments. My photographs might be titled “wild places” and my goal is to share with you the simple wonders of environments that are remote and unspoiled.”

Red Cross worker deployed to support flood relief in Colorado
The American Red Cross is supporting rescue operations in Colorado by providing shelter, food, relief supplies and comfort to thousands of people forced them from their homes by flash flooding.
Red Cross workers from the American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts are now accepting deployments to help residents recover. Ron Beckley of Gloucester, who specializes as a Disaster Services Technology Supervisor, has been deployed to Colorado.
Disaster Services Technology specialists are responsible for all the technology that is deployed on disaster relief operations. DST volunteers set up satellites where all phone and internet services have been disrupted, they set up computer services in remote locations for Red Cross caseworkers and often have to repair equipment in crisis situations.
More than 800 trained Red Cross disaster workers are staffing shelters and evacuation centers. The Red Cross has delivered more than 17 truckloads of relief supplies to residents – more than 5,000 items have already been handed out. Volunteers are working with community partners and have served more than 15,000 meals and snacks.
Flooding has also destroyed homes in Guam, New Mexico and Texas. Red Cross workers are also helping in those areas by providing shelter, food and comfort for people in need.
Beckley, in accepting this deployment, is gaining more experience working with Red Cross experts throughout the U.S. When he returns to Massachusetts, his knowledge will help better inform our efforts, and help make our local region stronger.
Donations can be made by visiting redcross.org or by calling 1-800-RED CROSS. People can also text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
