Mary Sullivan and Brett Dunton, fine artists and visual arts teachers at O’Maley Innovation Middle School, Gloucester, MA, act like art is the best subject anyone could dream of teaching. It’s evident that they’ve established an inspiring collaborative approach; they work together seamlessly and dazzle the students. Their art rooms are just the way you’d dream they should look–ample rooms that look like art work is done there in a big way.
They are super resourceful and adept at re-purposing and re-inventing materials. They adhere to the ‘your trash is our treasure’ school of thought. Any donated supplies can be dropped off at room 130 before or after school.

It’s right down the road. Geographically, you could argue it’s the beginning of Cape Ann (see map) AND you can get there on a CATA bus… Beverly’s arts scene is about to get its first performance/event venue with flexible table seating from cabaret-style, to theatre-style to elegant dinner parties, called 9 Wallis. Plus it’s a new venue for Gloucester artists to perform in — yes, Gloucester artists do cross the bridge from time-to-time.
We first told you about it in this post. Here’s an update:
On Jan 12, the City of Beverly approved our liquor license and we’ve tentatively scheduled our Grand Opening Gala for Saturday, April 1.
Now you’ve got 4 days to help us get it open by pledging to our Kickstarter Campaign — and in return reap some wicked cool rewards like an invitation to our Grand Opening Gala!
psssst … all the cool kids will be there ….
Two boys + lots of hockey + two dogs + wet trips home from the beach = need for a good car air freshener.
And, this is it. First of all, I welcome any reason at all to visit Surfari. Secondly, they’re super cute. Third, they’re inexpensive. And, fourth, they work crazy well!
