Eating bait again and loving it.

Bored with kayaking? Stop and bounce a little silvery thing off the bottom and catch a few Atlantic Mackerel. (Three Lanterns Marine, Deadly Dick Lure, good for lots of stuff, go with a small one for the Atlantic Mackerel. Catch a Pollock and eat that or rehook on something bigger and drop down for a blue or a low IQ Striper.)

Jasper White has these as an appetizer for around 23 bucks at the Summer Shack. He adds some fancy Venezuelan pickle relish on the side. Skip that and use Genuine Vidalia Sweet Onion Mustard Relish from Seaview Farm in Rockport. Rubber Duck Seal of Approval.

Three Moderns Paint Gloucester: Sloan, Hartley, and Hopper on Cape Ann

GLOUCESTER, Mass. (July 10, 2015) – The Cape Ann Museum is pleased to present Three Moderns Paint Gloucester: Sloan, Hartley, and Hopper on Cape Ann on July 23 at 7:00 p.m. This is the first in a series of three lectures being offered in conjunction with the John Sloan Gloucester Days exhibition on view at the Museum through November 29, 2015.

Presented by Carol Troyen, an independent scholar and author, and the Kristin and Roger Servison Curator Emerita of American Paintings at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Although they never overlapped in Gloucester, three of the greatest painters of the early 20th century – John Sloan, Edward Hopper, and Marsden Hartley – spent significant parts of their careers on Cape Ann. The three artists’ responses to the region differed markedly, but the area’s appealing vistas led each to a new and modern style. The lecture will trace their steps through Gloucester and compare what each found there.

Tickets for the lecture series are $10 for members and $15 for non-members. For the series, tickets are $25 for members and $40 for non-members. For more information, call 978-283-0455 x10 or email:info@capeannmuseum.org.

The series continues with John Sloan, Robert Henri, and John Butler Yeats: A Portrait of Friendship presented by Avis Berman on August 13th and Passing through Gloucester: John Sloan Between City and Country presented by Michael Lobel on October 30th.

About the exhibition:

One of this country’s most important artists of the early 20th century and a highly respected teacher, John Sloan (1871-1951) spent five summers—1914 through 1918—living and working on Cape Ann. During that time he created nearly 300 finished oil paintings, using Gloucester’s rugged landscape as a backdrop to experiment with color and explore ideas about form, texture and light. Arguably the most productive period of his career, the body of work that Sloan created during this time continues to astonish and delight viewers a century after it was completed.

The Cape Ann Museum is proud to have five major works by John Sloan in its permanent collection:  Sunflowers, Rocky Neck, 1914; Old Cone (Uncle Sam), 1914; Glare on the Bay, c.1914; Red Warehouses at Gloucester, 1914; andDogtown, Ruined Blue Fences, 1916.  Approximately 30 additional works, drawn from public and private collections across the country, will also be on display.

Exhibition Sponsors:

John Sloan Gloucester Days is sponsored by Carpenter & MacNeille Architects and Builders, Inc. and by Cape Ann Savings Trust & Financial Services.
