Paul Ciaramitaro, a lifelong resident of Cape Ann, began his love of art as a child. Over the years, he has been influenced by the Renaissance artists, as well as Aldro Hibbard, Emile Gruppe and especially Charles Movalli. In the 1970’s, Paul became a student of Movalli’s and was deeply inspired by him. He told Paul, “If you learn something from every painting you do, you will become an artist.”

In between his grueling hours as a commercial fisherman and dockworker, Paul sketched and painted in his spare time and worked hard to glean all that he could from his mentors. His commitment and talent led him to become a well-established and accomplished Cape Ann artist. His paintings have won many awards and his work can be found in both private and corporate collections, as well as in prestigious galleries and museums such as the Cape Ann Museum.

Over the past several decades, Paul has taught numerous classes and workshops, which have been widely attended, and he has served as a juror for many exhibitions. He is a juried artist member of both the North Shore Arts Association and the Rockport Art Association & Museum.

When asked about being an artist Paul says, “I’m serious about it. I’m passionate about it and I love it!”

First Ipswich Bank is pleased to announce that work by local artist, Susan H. Ingram, is on display at its Ipswich branch, 31 Market Street, through January 2019.
Susan has been painting in watercolors and teaching its techniques for the past 30 years. She has studied with many well‐known artists, and spent several years learning from the late Martin Ahern.
Susan recently moved from Ipswich, where she has an established reputation as a popular local landscape artist and teacher. She presently resides in Gloucester, where she taught for many years in the public schools. Susan continues to teach watercolor techniques to workshop groups and private individuals. She continues to participate in local art shows and she accepts private commissions, as well.
“We are surrounded by an enormous wealth of talent in Ipswich, as well as the entire North Shore and Cape Ann area, and we are fortunate that we have the opportunity to highlight, at least a small bit of it, in our branches,” noted First Ipswich Bank President, Jim McCarthy.
About the program:
A different local artist’s work is displayed every three months in the Bank’s Gloucester and Ipswich branches.
Susan’s work will be on display in Ipswich through January. A new artist will then be featured from February ‐ April 2019.

One thought on “This Weekend in the Arts 11/9-12/18

  1. James, Another home run here with all the bases covered going to be another great turnout for this one for sure! Great background on the artist too, the histories words are very nice as they come from within the artist themselves and carry over into their art the connection to community! Thanks For Sharing! 🙂 Dave & Kim 🙂
